Vintage Clothing Show pays tribute to the rock and roll bands
Apr '10
Overworn, overloved, and underappreciated by parents, band t-shirts were a badge of identity, and a symbol of rebellious youth. Stuffed in a drawer or wadded in a ball at the far reaches of your closet floor, these reminders of a wilder, younger you have re-emerged as the hottest fashion statement in the country!

Band T-shirts are once again in demand -- as much a part of the scene today as they were decades ago. That's why we'll find hundreds of young and old fashionable music freaks wrapped around a city block, eagerly awaiting to get into the upcoming Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show as though it were a rock and roll venue.

This Spring, the show pays tribute to the rock and roll bands that wove the fabric of youth with a special exhibit of 30 of the hottest music T-shirts torn from the pages of the newest book Ripped: T-Shirts from the Underground by Cesar Padilla, owner of the downtown vintage boutique, Cherry.

Here are the T-shirts that made history from Sonic Youth to Run DMC, the Sex Pistols to the Kinks, Talking Heads to the Cure. It's all about the music, the bands and above all, the look. The best of Padilla's 200-plus collection has found its way into the book, which he will be autographing at the show.

Want one of these hot band T-shirts? Band T-shirts can go from double digits to four figures. Who would have thought that your buddy in the school cafeteria was wearing a Led Zeppelin T- shirt that is now worth a $1000? Or, that that souvenir you picked up at a concert years ago would be high in demand. Video games like Guitar Hero and movies like the Runaways has brought on a fresh rock and roll revival, with the result that fashions from the era are enjoying a come-back.

Layer that Metallic T over a long-sleeved cotton thermal, or pair up that Carpenter's World Tour T-shirt with a mini skirt. It's only rock and roll and we like it!

Spring Show 2010 hours are: Friday April 23, 1-8 p.m & Saturday April 24 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
