DJing is so mainstream.
When I think of hipster doofus' I'm reminded of that song from a good few years ago,can't remember the band but the song was Bohemian like you

Depends very much on the hipsterness of the crowd but i'd guess these might be ok:

Dirty Projectors - Stillness Is The Move
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros - Home
Peter, Bjorn & John - Young Folks
Le Tigre - TKO
Hot Chip - Ready For The Floor
Yeasayer - Ambling Alp
The Blow - Parentheses

idk, there's a reason i don't DJ indie nights, to be honest.

That all sounds about right, but the tune off the Homebase advert ? Really?

Thanks very much, that will cover the hipsters for a while then I will do my own thing and they can like it or lump it

Hmmm. sounds like a pickle. I personally would get my iPod and sit with the head phones on listening to your own music whilst the wee fucks stare at you

I never DJ'd straight. Back in my 'honey-moon' period with Bumble Bee's, i had a habit of smacking out halfway through a set and forgetting to play the next song, oblivious to the dead silence and still grooving to myself. good times

15 years I've been DJ-ing. I think I'm whats classed as a commercial DJ, as in I also like to get paid for it.

Greatest achievement in that time was when I once (whilst working a wedding as posh as the Queen) had a group of 50 to 70 year olds form a circle, jump up and down, and chant "here we, here we, here we fucking go" to Cafe Del Mar. True story, they loved it and no one died

I would doubt these crazy indie cats I'm soon to entertain are going to be nearly as much fun.

^ aye, it's a decent bit of extra if you do stuff like weddings so fair play. I'm too much of an artist to compromise

It was good fun while i did it, and recently some folk have been asking me to do it again. But family and work have happened. all my decks are on loan!. was thinking of getng them back and recording using trakor ( it think, apparently my mixer is trakor ready )

Well i do hope you have some craic tonight. Just get full

Well, it's happening now. Hipsters everywhere. I'm already feeling the urge to fuck with them. Some kind of xfactor indie cover required.........

Some emo's have pitched up to join the party. I'm playing Get The Funk out by Extreme. They are not digging it, but a really tidy girl is.

Put some Slayer on. Actually, they'll find some irony to latch onto and enjoy. In fact, don't put Slayer on, you'll be fuelling their fire.

Well, that was exactly as much fun as I knew it would be. Hipsters & Emo's & a couple of local nutters who pitched up in the wrong boozer. These cunts would all appear to go out specifically to not have a good time. That was maybe my fault mind you. I did take the piss a bit, still, got paid. And if I didn't do it no one would. They should be more fucking grateful.
