Rebelution weed grinder, $19.95 Cali reggae band Rebelution (yeah, saying "Cali" is unbearable, but so are Santa Barbara reggae bands) sells merch mostly centered around the smoking of herb. So unique.
Paper Diamond hat pin, $10 My grandmother was an amateur milliner, so I think of hat pins being stuck into cloches and caubeens. I'm guessing that is not where these Paper Diamond pins are going. Backwards bro caps all the way.
Lotus floral herringbone hat, $27.50 We know very about this Hoosier-born jam band. But its URL, "lotusvibes.com," and the fact that it can sell a baseball cap that blends herringbone and floral patterns, says it all.
Nas T-shirt, $30 The NYC M.C. has a handful of apparel items modeled on retro Mets and Knicks looks. The blue and orange color scheme is always sharp. Bonus: You don't have to wear the shame of being a Mets or Knicks fan.
A-Trak 8-bit T-shirt, $25 He looks like an opponent from Punch-Out!!. And if he were in the game, he'd have to be ranked lower than Glass Joe. No offense, A-Trak. We love your turntable skills, but we're not giving you much of a chance in the ring.
Purity Ring Eclipse tank top, $15 We like this because it doesn't immediately read as a band shirt. Also, at just $15, it doesn't feel like you're overpaying for band merch, either.
North Coast Music Festival is one day away. The Labor Day Weekend bash always lures a bunch of people with a knack for making their own outlandish apparel. But let's say you're not as industrius, though equally fanatical. Where to turn for your Wu-Tang Clan Xmas sweater or Mac Miller baby clothing? Click through the strangest and coolest band merch we found for acts appearing at the Union Park festival.
