Making Shirts for the McKenzies Bye Bye Show :(

August 27, 2009

The McKenzies are my favorite local band here in Houston.

I met them at the Westheimer Block party in March when I was selling some of my silk screened T shirts at Avante Garden.

They have decided to break up (sadly), but are going out with a bang, having been nominated best Indie band in the Houston Press music awards.

I have had the pleasure of working with them on silk screening some t shirts and tote bags. I will miss working on stuff for them ;(.

I am making some more shirts for them to sell at their last show this Saturday night at Mango’s 8pm.
