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:
Just ’cause it’s November doesn’t mean you have to give up the Halloween vibes so easily! Larkin Poe can help with that! Their custom dancing black prayer candle ($15) is cool as hell, so grab one ‘n make use of it during these shorter, darker days!
NYC – Bowery Ballroom 11.19
And who says we have to say goodbye to skeletons just yet?! Dia De Los Muertos isn’t officially over until November 2nd, so I think we should OBVIOUSLY grab one of these rad Tash Sultana hats ($32.99)! Three colors to choose from (I’m for the black one, duh), plus they come with a copy of Flow State. DEAL OF THE CENTURY!
Chicago – Aragon Ballroom 11.9
NYC – Terminal 5 11.17 + 11.18
DC – The Anthem 11.21
If you wanna dream o’ Mitski and just how good Be The Cowboy is, then probably definitely grab yourself one of these pillowcases ($20) to rest your little head! (Don’t just be the cowboy, dream the cowboy!)
DC – 9:30 Club 11.16 + 11.17
NYC – Brooklyn Steel 11.30, 12.1 + 12.2
It’s important to have a place to put all your things, you guys. You could just use a backpack, but then you have to take the backpack off to dig out whatever you need at any given moment. INCONVENIENT, AMIRITE?! Slothrust is here to the rescue with this fanny pack ($15), though! No removal needed to find what you’re looking for! Plus, everyone will know you think Slothrust is p. rad! A win-win!
DC – Black Cat 11.8
NYC – Music Hall of Williamsburg 11.16
Or if you simply have TOO MANY THINGS that you need to put someplace, then upgrade to a Kurt Vile tote bag ($20)! Kurt Vile is our hoagie! Act quickly, ’cause only five of these puppies are left in stock!
NYC – Brooklyn Steel 11.28 + 11.29
DC – 9:30 Club 11.30 + 12.1
If you’ve been jonesin’ for the technology of yore, then Yellow Days has JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED! He’s selling a flippin’ WALKMAN (£15.00) ft. Yellow Days artwork! Operates on AA batteries, and with a USB cord (not included) you can convert tape cassette tracks to MP3 format! POTENTIALLY V. USEFUL!
Chicago – Lincoln Hall 11.12
NYC – Music Hall of Williamsburg 11.17 + 11.18
DC – Rock & Roll Hotel 11.20
This wishbone enamel pin (£4.00) is the perfect accessory for any Thanksgiving gathering! Not only is it festive, it’s also practical! Got an annoying uncle you don’t feel like speaking to? Just start talking about the significance of the pin and why you love Los Campesinos so much and which songs you think are their best work, and you can watch his old man eyes glaze over until he finally decides to go back to watching football or whatever it is I assume your annoying uncle does!
Chicago – Thalia Hall 11.8
NYC – Elsewhere 11.13 + 11.14
DC – Black Cat 11.17
