I used to always try to buy shirts with dates if I could at shows, but now I don't really care. It's pretty much about the design I like most for me. Also, for some reason bands always seem to be out of tour shirts in my size
. I think out of all the band shirts I've bought this year, only one has had dates on it, and I didn't buy it for the dates, I just liked the design. I also try to buy local band shirts when I can, and they never have dates, so yeah.
