You can see the appeal of a national day where people across the land don their favourite music-related T-shirts in a show of support and solidarity for artists. Britain has its Wear a Band T-Shirt to Work Day while in Australia has something similar. Now the concept has finally come to Canada.
The first-ever Canadian Music T-Shirt Day is set for tomorrow (how extra casual Casual Friday!). We’re being asked to wear merch from our favourite Canadian artists. If you don’t have anything presentable, your other option is to buy some merch. (More on that in a second.) Hashtags are #cndmusictshirtday and #ForTheLoveOfLIVE.
Once you’ve picked your tee, take a selfie and post it on social media. It would also be rather grand if you made a donation to the Unison Fund, which helps out Canadian musicians who have fallen on hard times.
The official website links to dozens and dozens of online merch shops: Arcade Fire, GloriousSons, Tokyo Police Club, Monowhales, July Talk, PUP, Tragically Hip, Alexisonfire, The list goes on and on.
Wardrobe for tomorrow? Sorted.
