Plaid Brixx are premiering their brand new music video for “Hipster Queen.”

“Hipster Queen” is a playful shot at the too-cool Brooklyn stereotype. The video follows Chris Duggan of Plaid Brixx around town as he trails the colorful and comical antics of his own “hipster queen.” But not so fast…this is not just the too-cool in Brooklyn I tell you. The “Hipster” was born and bred right here in the Pacific Northwest…If you look closer at the migration of the modern day hipster like we have done here (We will spare you the details) , you can see that Brooklyn is in fact bringing in people from Portland, Seattle and even Salt Lake City at almost record numbers which leads us to believe… The PNW is to blame for hipsterism.

Chris Duggan on “Hipster Queen:”

Living in New York during college exposed me to a lot of the hipster culture – I may have even bought into it a little bit, so the tone of the song is meant to be a playful caricature and not a sarcastic critique of the culture. My college girlfriend once bought a pair of eyeglass frames and actually wore them out all the time – which was my first inspiration for writing about this topic. I set out to write a song that said: “I love you even though you do ridiculous things like parade around in faux glasses with perfect vision.” During my time in New York, my band practiced in Williamsburg and I had a ton of friends living there so we used to hang out there all the time – there was plenty of inspiration for the rest of the lyrics through those experiences.
