Style of underground music embraced by hipsters rooted in punk rock, on the west coast. Specifically, the title is attributed to bands in the east bay, with some being on the record label asian man records, with notable exceptions.
History: The term came from the title of the band Pteradon's song, Urban Pirate Style. Originally, the song is a satire of self indulgent punk rockers who otherwise would have neglected the scene, however, this title was adopted and attributed to bands which have a firm DIY punk rock background, but may appear to fit more into the hipster/indie rock scene. Examples include, Pteradon, Joyce Manor, and Mane Horse, just to name a few.
