file under: in the beginning

rare original WASP The Last Command Tour t-shirt
year: 1985
tag: touch of gold (barely legible)
material: 50/50 cotton-polyester
condition: excellent (except for pit stains)
value: $300
note: acquired at this years Inspiration show in Long Beach, CA for a nice price.
Their 1989 gig at the Celebrity Theater in Anaheim California was one of the gnarliest shows I've ever seen. the Celebrity was a small venue so of course we were right down in front. It was loud as f*ck! My ears were still ringing the next day as we nursed our hang-overs. Ahh...the good ol' days. *sigh*

Vintage 1974 Little Feat Tour T-Shirt

file under: 70's L.A. boogie

uber rare & original Little Feat Tour t-shirt
year: 1974
tag: too faded to read
material: 50/50 cotton-polyester
condition: perfectly distressed vintage 
value: $500
note: acquired several years ago at a second-hand clothing store for a couple bucks. another case of store staff not knowing what they had. this tee is ridiculously rare and almost 40 years old. Little Feat were a Los Angeles based blues-boogie band formed out of several myths revolving around Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention. Whatever the truth is about how the band started their musical legacy is significant although somewhat underrated. besides that it's just a really cool 70's vintage rock tee which are becoming more difficult to find with each passing year.
