Shocking news: RI named 7th biggest hipster state in the country

According to Buzzfeed, Rhode Island has been deemed one of the hip(ster)est states in the nation, nestled between the District of Columbia and Washington State. The criteria to determine which states had that hip factor was how many times each state searched “hipster look”, “hipster music”, “hipster fashion”, or some other “hipster”-related phrase pertaining to said lifestyle. So, basically: the states that went against the foundation of hipsterdom and consciously tried to be hip.

Regardless, pull out your flannel and listen to some Animal Collective, since GoLocalProv gave Brown students a shout-out for “falling under the banner of the ‘hipster’“.
