ORDERS WILL SHIP AFTER CHRISTMAS

Quick update for the Gabe's fans out there. We have one final year end online march store with some cool updates. The good is that these shirts are super comfortable and get you a piece of local rock n roll history. The bad is that they won't arrive by Christmas. Sorry about that but it was the best we could pull off. Things are still in the works for a benefit concert in 2021 as we are all jonesin' for some live music. Have a great holiday, buy a shirt, and hopefully we can pay January rent and see the light at the end of this tunnel.

SONIC YOUTH MERCH STORE CLOSES 9-18-2020

First of all, thank you, thank you, thank you. Our initial fundraising attempt was a huge success - we sold enough shirts to almost pay rent!
And these shirts are pretty cool, so let's do it again - where you have several ways to keep Gabe's happenin'
1. Order a cool Sonic Youth shirt or a Gabe's hoodie from the link below - plus we had so many redos for the Nirvana shirts we are bringing those back too.
2. Buy a ticket to a show that we all hopefully get to go to in January. https://www.icgabes.com/e/keep-gabe-s-alive-116951201191/
3. Perhaps donate to our Gofundme to get us to October. https://www.gofundme.com/f/keep-gabe039s-alive?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cf+share-flow-1
Again, hogs and kisses to everyone and hope to see your faces soon.

classical-graphics.printavo.com Gabe's loves you so we are back with another performance from the past. This Sonic Youth shirt will be available for a limited time.
