12 - Algernon Cadwallader

This shirt holds a ton of memories for me. We were staying in Philly while on tour, in a house where 2 of the 4 members of Algernon Cadwallader lived. There was a kiddie pool full of water in front of the couch to soak your feet in while playing video games, we had snuck into a semi-private pool in Yardley the night before, which had a couple of waterslides in it, and had feared for my life as about 10 of us rode unsafely in a van 90mph down the interstate. We ate vegan french toast for breakfast and put some hot sauce on it (which ruled) and ate several pounds of fruit someone had brought home from their work. We were leaving to go to Brooklyn that day, and Peter, Micah, and I hand painted and screened these tshirts while Ben and Jake played Weezer covers. There are only 15 or 20 of these shirts, but what I like the most about it is that its a shirt for a band that I'm not in and I got to make it myself. This shirt makes me want vegan cheesesteaks.

11 - Sparrows Swarm and Sing

Sparrows Swarm and Sing were perhaps one of the loudest bands I have ever seen for how quiet their music is considered to be. The last time I saw them they took up 3/4ths of the room with their mass of musical equipment, two drumset, multiple stringed instruments and a backline of amps. This is actually my favorite shirt that I own. I wear it as often as I can because I like the color and the design and every time I put it on I am in a good mood automatically.

10 - Dragline

Dragline. This shirt is one of the only band tshirts I where I have never seen the band play. In fact, I actually have met one person in the band and he's pretty rad (and I think speaks for the others). My friend Aaron mailed me this shirt along with their last 7" before they called it a day. Everyone always stares at it trying to read the text below the head, which does in fact say the band's name.

9 - Hot Cross

Hot Cross has been one of my favorite bands for years. I actually got this shirt for free when Panda used to practice at MonkeyDrive. I don't wear this shirt very often but its actually one of my favorites for no other reason than me liking the band.

8 - Just Brew It

This is another one of my illustrious work t-shirts with something witty on it. I dont remember when or why I got this, I know there is a year on the back of it but I'm too lazy to take it off now that I have it on and look. The bubbly print on it is flaking off a bit but I don't care.

7 - Tragedy

Tragedy is a dbeat/punk band from the northwest. This shirt is pretty awesome, I think Chubbs has the same shirt as me and we sometimes wear it on the same day and then look like twins. Except not at all. I like the giant wolf print on it though, it makes me look tough even though I'm not whatsoever.

6 - Black Cross

Black Cross will always be one of my favorite Louisville bands. I bought this shirt at a show maybe 5 years ago at Keswick Democratic Club. It has weird bleach looking stains on the front/back (in the same spot) that were on it when I bought the short. Weird.
