We are 20 days away from the big day and if you’re like me, you need to get going on the whole shopping thing. You also probably have no idea what you’re getting anybody. That’s why I’m here. I have a couple of great gift ideas that will certainly get you on the favorite sibling list.
As you know by now, this blog is dedicated to spreading the word and supporting the fine musicians of Hampton Roads and there is no better way to support them and fulfill your gift list at the same time then by buying some swag. Pretty much every band and artist have merch for sale at their shows and buying a shirt or CD is the best way to help keep them to continue making and performing music. In this day in age, you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home . I have selected a couple of items from the Live Music Friday family that you can purchase from the world wide web.
Logan Vath and his band The Vacant just wrapped up a fantastic opening set for The Last Bison last week at The NorVa and they had a couple of shirts along with his CD, Better Man or Ghost, for sale. If you missed the show or missed out grabbing a shirt, you can grab this sweet tee on his Band Camp page. Click this link here to pick it up.
Over The Ocean released one of the best records of the year, Be Given To the Soil and they released several limited edition double vinyl copies that were quickly sold out. Don’t sweat, I have you covered. Click here to pick up a copy along with their great new t-shirt.
Who doesn’t love a bundle? Our August 30 Live Music Friday featured artist, Jake Clemons, just released his awesome new EP, Embracing Light. You might have seen him on Jimmy Fallon last week sitting in with The Root singing Song For Hope. Well now you can grab not only his EP but also one of his signature shirts and limited edition lithographs as part of a bundle deal. Click here to grab it and peruse other assortments of goodies.
This is just a small sample of what you can buy for your favorite music lovers. The best way to get something is to attend one of the many local shows that are happening around town. Not only are you supporting local music but you’re helping the local economy.
