There are several key components to being an indie kid.
1: Listen to a million bands that no one has ever heard of. The less well-known they are, the cooler you become. Nothing makes you cooler than rattling off a list of obscure indie bands to someone slightly less hipster
than you are. Remember, all well-known bands are sell outs.
2: Commit yourself to being different, specifically for the purpose of being more hipster
than your peers. Good ways to be different include wearing flannel shirts, having shaggy hair, and making Juno
-style, sarcastic jokes. Basically, just look and act like a hipster
3: You ARE better than everyone else, and make sure they know it. Be sure to roll your eyes at anyone who doesn't know of all your obscure indie bands. Be sure to brag about the books you read and your favorite wine. Be a pretentious snob.
Indie kids are people who want to be different, but aren't mature enough to know how yet.
