Conformist non-conformists who think by all following the same subculture they're uniquie and original. Usually found listening to Grizzly Bear, Passion Pit, Modest Mouse, Radiohead, Wilco, and the Flaming Lips with oversized headphones or on a vintage record player they picked up as soon as their favorite blogger told them how much greater they sound than CD's or digital downloads. Dress like hobos, even though they are mostly college-educated upper middle class yuppies with a trust fund. Go to great lengths to be viewed as original.
