Every Shirt CXL: New England Deathfest 2009

shirt: New England Deathfest 2009
size: XL (US)
vintage: 2009
provenance: festival

One of only fifty made and sold on-site (there was a second run done post-festival for those who missed out), this is a cool shirt as well as a worthy memento of this year's fest alongside the super-professionally-turned-out program booklet. You can see the festival report for who on the back of this shirt I didn't see -- in addition to Retch, Atrocious Abnormality and Covenance, who dropped too late to be cut from the shirt, who nobody saw on this fest -- but what this doesn't tell you is the band I saw that may not be on this shirt after a few washes. Digested Flesh definitely showed up, but on my shirt at least, their logo isn't clear enough to be immediately decipherable; probably not enough ink got through this part of the press, and it'll probably be the first to disappear. However, given the ridiculous number of shirts on hand, this probably isn't going to be for another couple years -- at which point I hope to have a couple more shirts from this festival in my closet.
