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 don’t think it should come as any surprise that HAIM’s merch selection is v. strong, but this T-shirt is by far my favorite design of the bunch. $30, super great.

DC – The Anthem 5.1
NYC – RCMH 5.4 + 5.5
Chicago – Aragon Ballroom 5.11 + 5.12

Greta Van Fleet

Some great Stranger Things vibes happening with all of Greta Van Fleet’s merch, whether it’s T-shirts, beanies or tank tops you’re after! Personally I’m into this crewneck sweatshirt ($30).

Baltimore – Rams Head Live 5.9

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

WHO CAN SAY NO TO COOL CANDLES?! I’m very into this black and gold design by BRMC, and at just $10, I think it’s a pretty reasonable way to fangirl.

NYC – White Eagle Hall 5.11 (NJ)

Alice Glass

Yes to supporting Alice Glass in any/all of the ways, you guys! Especially since all of her merch is p. dope! I vote we all at least grab one of these rad $12 tote bags to do our future grocery shopping in moon dagger style.

Chicago – Bottom Lounge 5.9
DC – U Street Music Hall 5.12
NYC – MHoWB 5.13, Public Arts 5.17


Speedy Ortiz

Oh my god this hat. THIS HAT. It’s so excellent, I cannot not shout it v. loudly from the internet rooftops. Grab one for $20 and look SO GR8!

DC – Black Cat 5.5
Chicago – Subterranean 5.12
NYC – MHoWB 5.17

Todd Terje

Todd Terje’s entire merch store is pretty magical – you can buy everything from vibrant prints ‘n T-shirts to socks ‘n underwear! Since I am a big fan of dancing to Inspector Norse, though, I’m gonna have to vote we all immediately grab a pair of these amazing monster socks, which I imagine would be extra good for cutting a rug.

NYC – Analog 5.18
Chicago – smartbar 5.20

Courtney Barnett

Let’s stick with the sock vibes, yeah? You can grab this pair of Tell Me How You Really Feel socks when you preorder CB’s new album as a bundle via Milk Records! (I like them so much that I will overlook the missed opportunity to say “TOE ME HOW YOU REALLY HEEL”.)

NYC – MHoWB 5.19
Chicago – Preston Bradley Hall at Tiffany Dome 5.21


Japanese Breakfast

There is not a single item that I don’t absolutely LOVE from Japanese Breakfast’s merch shop, but I mean, c’mon, you can’t not desperately want a pair of CHOPSTICKS, amirite?! They also come in pink, but as a four-year-old told me last week, I seem to generally go for “the boy colors”. (#GENDERISANILLUSIONMOSTLY) Just $8, v. adorable, MUCH YES!

DC – 9:30 Club 5.30
NYC – Warsaw 5.31


Who’s on tour in NYC, DC and/or Chicago this month w/ dope merch that we missed? TELL US, DUH!
