English term or phrase: Gwen Stefani/Orange County/ wallet-chain crowd
Opted against the tatto parlor, which was patronized by the Gwen Stefani/Orange County/ wallet-chain crowd, and headed to the floor.
vkan
English translation:rowdy, punky crowd
Explanation:
Gwen Stefani is a famous singer in a band called "No Doubt". She is a native of Orange County in California. And the "wallet chain" reference I am assuming has something to do with the fashion statements this type of crowd makes.

If you visit some of these links, you can get an idea of the kind of crowd this is referring to.
