WHAT IS #TSHIRTDAY?
Conceived back in a West End boozer in 2008 and now on its 12th annual celebration; #TSHIRTDAY pays homage to immortalising that perfect moment you experience when watching your favourite band live; to promoting that band that means the world to you; to supporting an artist that made you feel something, someone whose craft you identify with. We will be wearing what we want to hear; what our parents want to hear, what t-shirt and the band printed on it that makes us smile, that hits us in the feels.
“The wearing of the shirt is part of your story as a music fan and wearing an old one says ‘I love this band, I love this shirt and I’m still into it.’ I think it would be worse to buy a t-shirt and never wear it. The right t-shirt is a statement of who you are.” – STEVE LAMACQ
If we’re getting down to the nitty gritty, Band tees are our chance to represent what we love; what we listen to and what means something to us. It also counts as their biggest source of income, merch pays for petrol, for their food, for the booking fees. Without us fans representing them, our favourite bands wouldn’t be able to make it to the gig, it’s a full circle ting. (Sorry).
