Aerosmith held a free concert on the streets of the Allston neighborhood in Boston on Monday to mark the band’s 40th anniversary in the location where they got their start. Nowadays, Allston is quite the hipster enclave. Forbes, a publication that totally knows what’s up with the kids, named it as one of the 20 best hipster neighborhoods in the country.
Tom Brady, Bob Kraft and Jerod Mayo were the Greatriot contingent there for the show. An effective Troll Brady move would have been showing up in a different band’s shirt. Instead, Brady decided to embrace the hipster surroundings with the trademark hipster glasses. He also came decked out in an oversized pea coat with a flesh-colored undershirt, so people assumed he showed up bare-chested. Not that it matters. Brady ain’t care.

— The folks at Vicks gave Drew Brees an extra birthmark in their ads. Drew Brees doesn’t mind the mistake. He think the extra birthmark give him more character and that’s always valuable.
