Every Shirt XXXII: 1349

shirt: 1349
size: XL (US)
vintage: 2007
provenance: band

Another Mark's acquisition, this dates back to one of the best shows I had to see in that venue, at the end of March 2007. On this occasion, the locals were almost perfectly matched to the touring bands, and the bill turned out pretty much black metal top to bottom, making it worth the fact that it was an eight-band bill in a strip club's sports bar in New Hampshire.

Interestingly, the string '1349' is completely absent from this shirt. The front has the upturned cross from the Liberation cover, and the back has the tourdates, but the band name appears nowhere. This is kind of a big oversight in most cases, but in black metal you can at least convincingly pretend that being this super-kvlt and withholding that information was intentional.
