Welcome back to another edition of MERCH PARTY – a monthly round-up of all the best band merch comin’ to a venue near you, ’cause supporting your favorite artists in more ways than one is just part of bein’ a good fan! Let’s get into what’s good RIGHT NOW:
I love Sylvan Esso a real lot, and I love even more that they’ve got a motherfucking TOOTHBRUSH in their merch selection. And a murdered out toothbrush at that! You can grab one for the low low price of $3, or two for $5! (DEAL OF THE CENTURY!) The band won’t hit DC or Chicago until July, but you can catch ’em at Gov Ball here in NYC starting THIS WEEKEND!
NYC – Gov Ball, 6.3
Chicago – The Vic Theatre, 7.24
DC – The Anthem, 7.26
I love Perfume Genius and I love The X-Files, so it only make sense that I would ESPECIALLY love this PG x Scully T-shirt! Such good vibes I cannot! $20 a pop.
NYC – Forest Hills Stadium, 6.8
Sons Of An Illustrious Father
REALLY love this $10 SOAIF enamel pin, you guys. So much!
DC – DC9, 6.11
NYC – Elsewhere, 6.12
Chicago – Schubas, 6.18
The Voidz (w/ Julian Casablancas)
June will see the kickoff of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and what better way to celebrate than with this limited edition soccer jersey by The Voidz?! Sure, it’s $75, but you cannot put a price on lookin’ dope as hell!
NYC – Elsewhere, 6.6 + 6.13 + 6.20 + 6.27
DC – Union Stage, 6.9
Chicago – Empty Bottle, 6.15
It’s also festival season now, so I think it’s only fair to give this Peking Duk festival survival kit a mega shout-out right now! Is it about $32? Sure, but you get a bumbag, sunscreen, poncho, beer coozie AND banana flavored condom! #VALUE!
NYC – Highline Ballroom, 6.13
DC – Union Stage, 6.15
Chicago – Lincoln Hall, 6.16
Very into all of the Vance Joy merch, but I think it’s p. tight that you can grab a skate deck! Cost is $60.
DC – The Anthem, 6.12
NYC – Prospect Park Bandshell, 6.14
Who’s on tour in NYC, DC and/or Chicago this month w/ dope merch that we missed? TELL US, DUH!
