In Seattle there is a very cool local tradition of Seahawks football fans wearing team t-shirts/jerseys on the Friday before a game, they call it Blue Friday. A couple of months ago I floated the idea of putting the same idea out there for wearing local band shirts and swag on a particular day of the week, both local musicians and music fans loved the idea, so this year we’re going to start spreading the word:
Wear your local band t-shirts on Wednesdays. It’ll help spread the word about local music, put a little more money in to the hands of local artists, and it will increase Seattle pride in our local music scene!
Take pictures of yourself in your local band swag and use the hashtag #wearitwednesday (thank you TBASA!), share it, and let everyone you know you support independent local artists!
PS. If it works here in Seattle, I recommend other cities try it too.
