The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


Well, we did a lot of these tribute shirts in 2016 because well…lots of absolute legends died. We lost, among others, David Bowie, Phife, Lemmy, Prince, Muhammad Ali, Gene Wilder, Leonard Cohen, and Carrie Fisher. It’s like half the people I loved (but never new) growing up have died last year.

If you’ve noticed, we like to give out free shirts. We did this first with the I Still Heart SF shirt, then the Broke As Fuck shirt, the Prince shirt, the Muhammad Ali shirt, the Fuck Donald Trump shirt, the Leonard Cohen shirt and the Carrie Fisher shirt. All folks gotta do is pay for shipping and handling.

We do this because it’s awesome to literally put a shirt on someone’s back. But we also do it because we figure, if you get one shirt for free, maybe you’ll buy one of the other great things from the store as well. This helps us keep the site running. That said, regardless of whether or not folks end up buying other stuff, it feels really good to be able to give something to people that they really love.

And that’s why we’re giving out this Chuck Berry shirt for freeJust use the code JOHNNY when you check out. (Ladies’ cut is here and the code is also JOHNNY ).

Chuck Berry is the literal definition of a legend. The man helped create rock n roll for fuck’s sake. With songs like “Johnny B. Good”, “Maybellene”and “No Particular Place to Go” the man helped usher in a genre of music that changed the world irrevocably forever. Much love to this musical pioneer.

Enjoy your free shirt fellow broke-asses.
