Someone who isn't into most of the trends, but won't ostracize you for liking mainstream stuff. Are not hipsters, who are douches about blabbering on about the countless bands they can name. Rather, indie kids like counterculture stuff, but aren't vicious and venomous like punk kids or emos.
Indie Kid: "Did you hear the Nightbirds latest album?"
Normal Kid: "Um, who?"
Indie Kid: "Oh, there just a band I like. You should give em' a listen sometime. You might like them."

People usually associate Indie Kids with Hipsters and Scene Kids, but they're pretty different.

Indie Kids enjoy music put out by alternative rock bands and bands/artists who aren't signed to a major record label/no label at all. These can include bands such as: Bloc Party, Muse, Coldplay, Nirvana, Radiohead, Fleet Foxes, Franz Ferdinand, Kasabian, Kaiser Chiefs, The Cure, The Black Keys and The Maccabees.

They also enjoy artwork similar to what you'd find on their

favourite band's album covers.

Their clothing can be described as vintage, old fashioned, messy and sometimes just, plain.

Indie Boys have woopy or curly/messy hair. They're usually are seen wearing band t-shirts or plain shirts and t-shirts. They also wear loose, black or blue denim jeans and converse/white Lonsdale trainers. The might also wear hats like Pete Doherty of The Libertines/Babyshambles.
Indie Girls usually have with long, wavy hair often wearing some form of headband. They are usually seen wearing either: loose t-shirts and waistcoats, baggy woolly jumpers or baggy crop tops with band logos or flamboyant patterns on them.
Indie boys are often seen as being shy and quiet.
Indie girls are often seen as shy at times, yet energetic at times.
Indie Girl-"Rawr! I'm a dinosaur :P"
Indie Boy-"Um... Ok."

Person A-Did you see those too people?
Person B-Yes. They were just talking about Kasabian and Foo Fighters
Person A-They seem pretty fond of each other.
Person B-They're probably just Indie Kids

(n) Indie kids-come in many varieties but a few common traits about them are:
-tight pants
-unkept hair (usually a sanctuary for birds and miscellaneous indie items, in city areas rats are common)
-three or more pairs of vans slip-ons (very shitty appearance….with checkers)
-an extensive list of over two thousand songs that they have listened to once on their ipods
-striped sweaters or sweater vests
-striped sweaters for ipods
-share common like for songs utilizing 4 chords and a pentatonic scale solo(gay)
-an acoustic guitar(from target)
-tee shirts with bands you have never heard of and never will.
-snow caps in the dead of summer
-many have moderate to severe acne

Habitat: Their natural habitat is usually the local coffee shop/legion or v.f.w., which they habitually attend on weekends to watch obscure bands. Some indie kids actually watch the bands but most of them come to the shows to smoke in the parking lot with their friends and talk about other indie bands from Britain, also known as the U.K. (because we all know, the more British something is, the more AMAZING it is).

Everyday Life: Obscurity is really the basis of the entire culture. Chances are, if you have an indie friend, they are probably extreme long boarding in downtown Oswego, Illinois while listening to the Kaiser chiefs at this very moment

Diet: Everything an indie kid eats must be one of two things. Vegetarian or organic. Their meals include: tofu wraps
Turkey wraps
Lettuce wraps
Roast beef wraps
Ham and cheese wraps
Sprout and bean wraps
…………..Fuck it basically any wrap will do
overpriced obscure fruit smoothies(ex. Mango pomegranate)
Whole-wheat non-comformist purple red green and black chips
Tuna (without dolphin chunks in it)
Soymilk
Snapple brand drinks
Average Joe: dude, wanna go to the movies this weekend? The new oceans' movie is out, it looks bad ass.

Indie kid: nah dude, im heading to Colorado for the sundance movie festival, mainstream movies are trash, George Bush is brainwashing you…I’d much rather watch movies about lesbian cowboys eating pudding…and eat some organic lettuce wraps…*turns around and plays song on guitar with three chords*

Average Joe: fuckin weirdo…

Kids between the age of 13-22 who are full of themselves and feel superior because their music isn't mainstream and who will bash anything that's mainstream, even if it's something good. They tend to be arrogant and rude, and they think that they are just the coolest shit ever. They only listen to indie music and are hypocrites because while they bash the scene kids, they too all fall into a similar style by wearing tight jeans, faded colors, and converse. They also like short, dark hair for girls and longer hair for boys.

Indie-pop and indie are two majorly different things to them. Tell them that you like The Ting Tings or New Young Pony Club and they will laugh at you like the judgemental bastards that they are because that is not REAL indie you idiot.

They are way too caught up in music and it's their entire life. They will only be friends with you if you like their music, otherwise, no matter how friendly or funny or charming you are, they will hate you simply because of your subjective taste.

However, if you do manage to befriend an indie kid, it can be good because if they like you they will defend you to the death. They also can introduce you to lesser-known bands that will be forgotten in ten years and help you embrace the 'vintage' style of old plaid shirts and color palletes of gray and brown.
Person: Hey did you hear that blink 182 are getting back together and touring with Fall Out Boy? Isn't that great?!

Indie Kid: Tch fuck both those bands they suck and they're unoriginal and mainstream and I hate them even though I've only heard two songs from each on the radio and it will ruin my awesome indie kid image if I admit to even respecting or acknowledging them as artists.

Person: Well uh, they both kind of invented and furthered the pop-punk genre and will probably be remembered ten years from now so...uh what bands do you listen to?

Indie kid: -some random band that has ten hits on myspace and hasn't even released an EP- Fuck off so I can listen to my band without having to listen to your mainstream shit clogging my ears. You're a horrible person for liking certain music and I hate you even though I've just met you GOODBYE.

That's indie kids for you.

What happens when a hippie and an emo have a baby.
Maia, our resident indie kid, is that lovely mixture of "i hate the world" and "i hate your businesses" too.
