Day: 59
Shirt: Angry Samoans - I ♡ NY
Color: white
Brand: fruit of the loom
Source: I think at one point the band just bought a bunch of shitty random shirts and just screen-printed their logo on on them.  pretty smart considering A: the shirts are kind pre-softened B: its cheap C: it makes each shirt unique.
I’m curious if the band did it to be cheap or creative.  im going to go with creative cause i am feeling optimistic today

Shirt: Murder City Devils - Black Skull
Color: Black
Brand: Fruit Of The Loom Best
Source:  Ironically the first time I saw Murder City Devils and got this shirt was in either 1999 or 2000.  It was also the first time i ever saw NY.  I walked miles to go see the empire state building (cause it looked close), only to get up close after hours of walking i get there and by there i mean the chrysler building.
It was that kind of vacation.  lots of excessive drinking and labels were doing amazing show cases.  Like Jade Tree when they had Joan Of Arc, Jets To Brazil, Promise Ring, and someone else i forgot…maybe Denali?  And this Sub Pop showcase @ the Wetlands  check out this line up.

It was seriously packed in that place, it felt electric.  like you knew some shit was going to go down.  It was as if this was the movie the Warriors and all these bands brought their own kind of weaponry to destroy the night and your ear drums.  Everyone was wearing black in predation for this royal rumble that was about to take place.  and take place it did.  
After the show got out i had 2 things bothering me.  one: lack of hearing, should have worn ear-plugs, that was just dumb.  the other, was the many drinks in my stomach that i had that was floating around in there with out their best friend food.  but alas!  what do i spot, one of those notorious hot dog trucks you always see on Episodes of Law & Order.  street meat.  and being the lover of hot dogs, i needed to embark on that pork patty.  and i did, and it was delicious.  the first and only one i have ever eaten.  
Was the show great?  i think so i cant really remember all that much, but i stayed the entire time so it must have been  what i remember most about that night is this Shirt and that Hot Dog.  
mmmm

Shirt: Lily Allen - NY Secret Show
Color: Pink
Brand: American Apparel
Source: I literally spent all weekend trying to get all the stacks of posters from shows i have put on in the past, on eBay so i can clear ups some space and put them in good homes.  so i thought it was appropriate to wear one of this shirts from the shows, cause its all that has been on my mind today.  so many posters, so many shows, so many countries.  what a crazy time.  i have put on over 200 shows in 7 different countries and will anyone know/care?  probably not.  but there are times that when i hear about someone who went to a show and they loved it, that kinda makes it all worth while.  i’m no Steve Jobs, i didn’t change the world, i just hope i made it funner for someone at some point.  
So this one is from a NY show with Lily Allen & Matt + Kim, i put on at the bower Ballroom in NY for Lily’s second record.  I don’t remember much from that night, it was fun, and i learned that Matt & Kim are super nice people whom ill always respect, for making their job look so fun.

if you wanna buy some old posters form shows for your house or for some friends go here. :)  good xmas gifts. and CHEAP!

 Shirt: Hot Chip - Devo / R. Kelly 
Color:  White
Brand: Beefy T
Source: Bought At Hot Chip Secret Show in NY at Highline Ballroom in Feb of 2010.  Not every shirt is going to be sweet vintage action, but this very well be one of the best shirts of all time, in the history of shirt designs.  you are hard pressed to top this one.  I mean come on, a JPEG of RKelly Courtroom, all pixelated with a random DEVO hat on top of as if to say “Man, this is some bullshit!  if i wasn’t wearing my Devo hat to block out these thoughts, i would bust a cap in this courtroom…Damn”
oh wait, throw a motherfucking sleeve print on that bitch too, its like the cherry on top.
