Welcome back to another edition of MERCH PARTY – a weekly 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:
November 28th, 29th + 30th
Hanson @ PlayStation Theater
If you’ve got tickets to see Hanson on any (if not all three) of their NYC dates this week, please know that I am insanely jealous of you. Also, please pick me up a bucket hat. I deserve that at least.
Beach Slang @ Black Cat
Beach Slang will be in DC first, and then will roll through NYC on the 29th (tomorrow) // whether or not you make it out to a gig, I strongly suggest picking up one of these super sweet enamel pins for just $7:
SonReal @ Mercury Lounge
You should know by now that there will rarely if ever be an edition of merch party that doesn’t include a dad hat, this one being no exception // thanks, SonReal, for making all of this possible due to your NYC gig on the 30th at Mercury Lounge and your DC gig on 12.1 at Songbyrd!
Mappe Of @ Mercury Lounge
After SonReal, Mappe Of will take the stage for Mercury Lounge’s late slot. I’d highly recommend grabbing tickets to the show, but even more-so, I vote you snag one of these v. aesthetically pleasing tote bags:
November 29th + 30th, December 1st
The Hold Steady @ Brooklyn Bowl
Whether or not you’re a big fan of The Hold Steady, there is no denying that keeping a bottle opener on hand at all times is CRUCIAL in this political climate. So probably grab one for $10, yeah? Practical AF.
