    I probably have a good 20-30 concert/band t's. Some of them I don't wear anymore and I have lost a few over the years too. I will try and do this sometime this week.

    Curses! After a particularly crazy Bad Religion show in 2006 (Vancouver) I had a fair bit of blood down the front of a 2003 warped tour t-shirt. I threw the t-shirt away soon after and the picture died with an old cell phone. Too bad, it was pretty a sweet shot.

    I found a website freshman year of high school that sold indie and old punk band t's, and thus I never wore anything other than obscure band shirts for the last three years of high school. Branched out in college. I still wear maybe 7 of them in my two weeks rotation

    For some reason, I've always disliked buying shirts at concerts probably because I like my hands free while watching a show

    i have such a beef with band tees.

    the girl shirts are either too small or not long enough. and the guys shirts are so huge at the sleeves, i look like a pillowcase. i wish more people would use AA for the shirts...i don't want to be a giant pillow.

    that being said i'm pretty sure i have shirts from

    my bloody valentine
    of montreal
    the decemberists
    the arcade fire
    health
    new order
    rilo kiley
    bright eyes
    mgmt

    i've pretty much stopped buying shirts at shows and getting vinyl instead.

    I used to have hundreds of records, then they all got stolen or lost. Now I figure the only reason to buy vinyl is if yr a curmudgeonly dj, or collect them for fun. Concert tees are a collectible memento that you can wear, they also make it more likely that you will attract people with similar taste in music.

    I can't tell you how many girls I have dated just because of the band or festival on my tee.

    You were at Vegoose! Man I would have loved to meet up with you man, I was also at the L.A. show. So I have like 4 of the Alive 2008 tees. They ALWAYS get mad attention.

    Did you go to the MSTRKRFT show at Revolution after Vegoose was over?

    We must have been partying together then...i was at LA, as well as vegoose (obviously)...several other members from the board were as well.

    I was staying at that hotel, and definitely raged my face off with MSTRKRFT at the revolution bar. (From 2am - 6am???i cant recall exactly)...but it was SO SMALL AND SO AWESOME.

    Were you there in beginning? I had already been awake for some 50 hours at that point, but the one thing i will never forget is when they took down the red ropes around the stage and everyone rushed it...that was amazing.

    Oh yes. The most recent Radiohead IR tour tee "You'll go to hell for what your dirty mind is thinking" gets a lot of fun comments. My favorite was a cute girl sitting at the bar as I'm waiting for my drink. We had made eye contact a moment before so when I got my drink and looked back at her she looks at my t-shirt, looks up at me and with little grin says "will I?" That was a good night.
