Band Tease 2: Band T-shirts for Bands that don't Exist!
Friday May 10, 2013 at The 460 (460 Spadina, Toronto), the follow-up to last year's Band Tease will be going down. Participation in this show is open to all who wish to get their hands dirty and silk screen (or whatever other method you prefer) up some fun fake band T's! Last year's show was the result of all those times the phrase, "that'd make a great band name", came up in conversation and us finally deciding to put our ink where our mouths are. This year is shaping up to be even better than last! Participation has at least doubled from last year's show, and we are pleased to host the work of some international artists from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, where the illustrious Eric Euler (past collaborator/partner in crime and currently working on his MFA in printmaking down South) has taken on the task of coordinating shipment of t-shirts up to the grim, frozen North. He is also organizing a Southern edition of Band Tease, slated for some time in the fall. More details on that one to follow + more details to come for the Toronto event. In the meantime, here's the official call for submissions for Band Tease 2:
