I bought this tshirt at Hillside Music Festival in Guelph in 2003 after rollicking set in the side tent which was where the youth committee selected artists were playing that year. Cuff the Duke and Metric were notable performers that year. I think they might have still been on Three Gut Records at the time. It’s another one for the can’t wear it too often category. Super simple design. Probably the band shirt that has drawn the most commentary over the years.
This post is for a gallery of indie tshirts we are building to document the social history of independent music. Do you have a great indie band or artist tshirt you’d like to profile in a TINI gallery? Send us a photo (jpg, 300 dpi scan, or 2MB or less) of the shirt in action with a brief (less than 300 words) write up that tells us how and when you got the shirt, and something about your connection with the band or artist, or some kind of historical context, and we will add it to our gallery: email inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
