The John McIntire Dangerously Live Comedy/Talk Show ponders Pittsburgh hipsters in “Hipsterization Too... The 2nd One!” at the Cabaret Theater, 655 Penn Ave., Downtown, at 10:30 p.m. McIntire and Co. already have documented the “growing phenomenon of bearded, tattooed, flannel-wearing, bicycle-pedaling, cheap beer drinking, creative, technologically oriented, funky little hipsters. But since they will soon leave pods by our beds and take over, we must examine things in greater depth.” Panelists include Hipster in denial/lesbian/feminist/environmentalist/ride-sharing enthusiast Ellie Gordon, Pittsburgh Hipster Monitor Mayoral Chief of Staff Kevin Acklin, Origins of Pittsburgh Hipsterism Chronicler Post-Gazette Columnist Tony Norman and “Zack” and “H” from the Hipster Band the Nox Boys as representatives of Hipsters of the Future. They will play live tunes of the present, reminiscent of garage band songs of the past. Admission is $10 or free with ticket stub from a same-night Cultural Trust event.
