MGMT has gone from the little Brooklyn band that could into the international ambassadors of hipster culturey'know, the most-agreed upon definition of "hipster," the Wayfarers and neon shirts and Casio shimmy dance and whatnot. Basically, these guys are the reason that kids in Iowa are gonna be dressing like your friends did in 2006. But dont be snarky about it 'cause theyre awesomely raising a shit-ton of money tonight for Celebrate Brooklyn. With fellow happy-scrappy Athens dance team Kuroma and Brooklyns soaring Suckers.
