Aha, so you get cheap shirts. That explains it. Shirts are almost never that cheap here. Yesterday Alice Cooper was charging 25 ($40), and it's by no means uncommon for club bands to do the same. The Overkill shirt I mentioned was 20 ($32). If someone has shirts at almost any gig in London for 10-15, it's a surprise. so obviously when a band does do that, it's a whole different consideration. At the Astral Doors show a few weeks ago they had shirts for their newest album, which weren't that great, and shirts for their previous album, which were awesome. At 10, I was more than happy to get one.
