To avenge their leader Sean Bin No Skinny Jeans’ death, the anti-hipster terrorist network has decided to take action. It has been widely reported this week that their next target will be McCarren Park in Brooklyn, New York, anywhere from June 16 to 19, as hipsters from all across the tri-state area gather outside for the Northside Festival. As if the terrorist network needed any more proof that their plastic glasses-wearing nemesis would be in attendance, the Northside Festival announced an additional 65 new bands this week that have been added to their lineup:
