Celebrate Digital Love Before It Goes Mainstream

We know hipster has become quite the pejorative these days, but we really can’t see why. Hipsters are intellectual, independent thinkers with good taste in music, movies, and books; a love for skinny jeans and scarves; and a propensity for riding one-speed bicycles. We don’t see anything wrong with any of that. Perhaps it’s the fact that independent thinkers don’t like to be labeled that started the whole kerfuffle. But hey, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a hipster. And if you have ever been called a hipster — and resented it — than you’ll probably enjoy Digital Love Thursdays at the Green Room Nightclub (109 SW Second Ave., Fort Lauderdale). Of course, if you’ve never been called a hipster, then you’ve probably never heard of Digital Love (hipster joke). Well, Digital Love will be celebrating its One Year Anniversary Party on Thursday from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. There will be all the indie art, indie music, indie DJs, and $5 indie craft beers (and $2 PBRs) you can independently handle. Enjoy it while it lasts, though, because after this, it’s probably going to be way too mainstream (’nother hipster joke). Digital Love is strictly for those 21 and over. Admission is free. Visit greenroomlive.com, or call 954-449-1025.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
