Q102’s music-meets-fashion contest for local bands called Project Indie is now in its final round, with five bands winning the chance to have official band T-shirts designed and produced by five artists selected by Indie Boutique (320 E. Walnut St., 417-865-5400) and reproduced for sale by the band and in the store. The T-shirt design-off, as it were, takes place this Friday (October 2) at Indie starting at 5 p.m. The store’s customers will vote for the winner among the five, and the prize is the headlining slot at an upcoming Q102 Homegrown show. It could be any one of these five:
If you’re just in it to buy some local-band threads, you’re in luck; all five groups will have their designed shirts available for sale at Indie, no matter who the winner is. That said, good luck to all five finalists and here’s to seeing some impressive finished products.
***UPDATE*** Here is some added info, courtesy of Lucia of We Are Like the Spider:
“* Voting is open ANYTIME from October 3rd – October 31st @ INDIE. Next time you are downtown swing by INDIE to vote.
“* During Artwalk the designers will actually be creating the design for the t-shirts. Voting then begins the following day.”
