As you can tell from all the snazzy graphics and fancy multimedia just oozing from every corner of this page in eyeball-rotating Technicolor, this blog is really into fashion.
But every once in awhile a band comes up with a merch item that’s too good to resist. All-female trio Sharkmuffin – who play a haphazardly individualistic, reverbtoned blend of punk, surf rock and psychedelia – have a new band t-shirt to die for. It’s Anne Boleyn playing bass.
The print on the shirt is a medieval portrait of Anne Boleyn playing delicately with a pick. Her hands are tiny; the neck is thin (just like hers, ha). She’s not playing any recognizable chord, or for that matter, with any recognizable technique: must be that weird lute tuning she’s used to (reputedly, she played that instrument competently). $15 plus shipping, or pick one up at a show.
Sharkmuffin are at the Broadway in Bushwick on Jan 11 at around 10. Explosive, theatrical, phantasmagorical indie/metal band A Deer A Horse open the night at 9; cover is $12. Sharkmuffin are also at Our Wicked Lady on the 19th at 10:30 by themselves, for two bucks less.
