"We have a no hipsters rule" says guitarist El Hefe
NOFX attempted to pay a fan to leave one of their gigs after identifying him as a hipster.
The band were playing at the Cunard Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia when frontman Fat Mike spotted a fan on the front row who was wearing a tie-dye shirt and sporting a beard.
Fat Mike offered him cash to leave the gig immediately. “You have no business being here,” the singer said “I will pay you $100 (£64) to leave this show. Are you gonna stand in front and bother me all day with your fucking tie-dye shirt and your beard?”
Guitar player El Hefe added: “We have a no hipsters rule. No hipsters tonight.”
The fan declined the offer, but did accept $20 (£13) to lose his shirt. The offending item of clothing was thrown onstage and escorted out the building at the band’s request.
