Hey, some of us our messier than others!  I know because I'm one of them (I dropped a hot dog at the airport last week.)  That's why we made a Kurt Braunohler "Keep It Dry!" rally towel!  This 11" x 18" full color towel has been sublimation printed with Kurt's face and is guaranteed to clean up any spill! 

GIFTS FOR PEOPLE WHO KEEP FORGETTING TO BRING THEIR USED BAGS TO THE GROCERY STORE

Single use bags are OUT and reusable bags are IN!  That's why we have TWO reusable bags in our mailorder department.  There's the Corin Tucker Band tote bag with a variation of the art to their modern classic Kill My Blues, and the KRS "Bearded Dudes + Shark" tote (is it just me or do the guys on this tote look familiar?)  Go green this holiday season!

 

GIFTS FOR PEOPLE THAT LOVE TO STAY HYDRATED

Did you know that humans are supposed to be around 70% water?  Keep it that way with our Kill Rock Stars star logo water bottle and Kill Rock Stars: 20 Years Coffee Mug (you can put liquids besides coffee in it if you want.)

 

GIFTS FOR PEOPLE WHO NEED A VACATION BUT JUST DON'T HAVE THE TIME OR MONEY

Sometimes you need a vacation but just don't have the time or money... and that's where Thao and Mirah's: On Tour and In Their Own Words art book comes in handy!  Thao and Mirah write about life on the road and Wendy MacNaughton handles the illustrations.  It's like you're on the road WITH the band (except you don't have to lift anything or get on stage).  These are the last copies of a printed and numbered edition of 100.  Includes a download code for Thao and Mirah's 2011 album on Kill Rock Stars!
