The Pill


Ripping on the mainstream media has been pretty much the exclusive domain of Republicans with sore asses over the past few years, but let’s take it back for a moment. The recent spate of hipster-bashing articles and investigations by such upstanding institutions as the Boston Globe and New York Times has us a bit worried, and not just for the state of their journalistic priorities. Here’s the thing: beneath all the ironic slogans and tongue-in-cheek fashion that are so easy to hate on, these people actually know how to have fun. Need proof? Clubgoers have been mobbing the Pill (with DJs Ken and Michael V) every week for almost 12 years in order to be surrounded by fresh cuts and classics from indie-rock land, live bands like the Televandals and Taxpayer, and throngs of hotties who probably wouldn’t be caught dead at most of the bars in Allston. It’s not pretense, it’s just self-respect! Bumping, sweaty, non-stop self-respect.
