Free Shirt Friday All Weekend + More

FSF All Weekend!

We’ve done the free shirts for the last few weekends, and I wanted to do it one more time as we head towards a week of celebrations around the Two-Year Anniversary of the founding of the Museum! So jump in while you can and consider throwing in another item if you can! A museum catalog? Another shirt ? Some tasty vinyl, or some shitty artwork, personally fucked up by yours truly!

Thanks again for all of your support!!

– because we like to be nice and not everyone has spare $ for fashionable offensive (well mostly) shirts for themselves or as a gift!

What is the catch?
– there isn’t – as I said, we do charge a small handling fee to cover people, envelopes etc

Are they crap shirts covered in cat puke and old ink stains and dog hair??
– Well, no they are brand new super cool shirts ! But actually maybe now you mention it one will be! 

There is another way you can help too:
A $100 “please don’t even send me a shirt,” shirt where you can buy a shirt that doesn’t exist, that you don’t want, that we won’t make – as a way of showing support and helping to keep all of this going! It’s also something I like to show students – the evidence that music business is so very different than business business! 

Thank you!
Don’t forget the amazing round of auctions and other stuff going on!

Museum eBay Auctions:

There are ongoing auctions to keep the lights on at the museum! This round features new Newcastle Brown Ale Sculpture by Martin Atkins prints on 11″x15″ Museum Paper! 

“Dot screened from a photo of my first Newcastle Brown Ale sculpture from the first time I stopped drinking. People would send me bottle caps, and my love of Newcastle came out in the form of this lovely piece! It then became part of the Notes from Thee Underground album cover, and was made into scenery for the 1994 Pigface tour. These days, I worship Newcastle Brown Ale from afar, with just over 2 years sober, but it’s nice to have this piece!”

Check out these prints and more in this round of auctions!

Midwest Music Expo VI

Doors 11AM, Music Start 11:30, Panels Start 12PM
Decatur, IL

Now in its fifth year, MmX is a music industry conference with a deep focus on the midwest music scene and the communities that shape it. It draws equally on local leaders and international experts to deliver compelling panels, thoughtful discussions, inspiring keynotes, and new connections.

The 2023 Expo in Decatur also brings the first ever Get Signed Contest where artists will present 1 minute of their best song to a panel of industry professionals for critique. The prize package includes a 100-unit pressing of 12″ vinyl from Smashed Plastic Record Pressing, a MIDI Keyboard, apparel, and a signed record deal with Millikin’s First Step Records. To learn more about and enter the contest, go here!

Rooted in a punk-rock, DIY, hard work, no-nonsense, get-things-done mentality, both events will spark creativity and connection throughout the Midwest region.

Tickets are $20, but you can get yours free with code MartinSentMe !
