I was not compensated for this review. I received a complimentary tank in exchange for this post; all opinions are entirely my own.
I went to my first Phish show in Albany circa 1998 (as with many things that happened during my college years, the details are a bit fuzzy). What I do remember most of all was that I had never experienced anything quite like it before. The parking lot mayhem, the music, the enthusiastic fans… I was instantly hooked.
At the time, I barely knew any of their songs but watched in admiration as the crowd sang along and participated in choreographed noodle dancing alongside me. My girlfriend turned to ask if I was having a good time at the exact moment we were showered with glow sticks. It was magical and the first of nearly 70 Phish shows to come.
Through the power of social media, I was introduced to Drew, owner of Phunky Threads, and we began to chat about all things Phish and his growing business of creating unique garment-printed lot shirts. I love how this company was started—a Facebook picture Drew uploaded of his son sporting a Minecraft “Harry Hood” t-shirt immediately garnered a lot of attention (and special orders). And because I love to support and help spread the word about any small business (especially one specializing in Phish gear!), I’d love to introduce you to the tank I ordered with a lyric from a Phish cover (Ween) called “Roses are Free.”
I am obsessed with this tank for several reasons: the printing quality is top-notch, the fit is comfortable, and I have a special affinity for all things Peanuts and this song, so this was clearly a top pick. Though I might have to add this Harpua shirt to my collection at some point.
Ladies and gents, I have an exciting giveaway for you! One lucky winner will receive a shirt of their choice from Drew’s fantabulous online collection.
