Austin FC-repping Los Verdes' symbols mix with Daniel Johnston's mural-famed Jeremiah the Innocent on this soccer-suited scarf, splitting proceeds between the two groups and the nonprofit Soccer Assist.


For the Fan Who Wears Their Heart on Their Chest

$25

The local fivepiece behind snarly track "Bodega Babies" transforms into adorable Bratz dolls in this cropped tank design by Leah Primeaux, complete with a tiny cowgirl hat.

Fuck Money "$$$ Finger" Shirt

For the Fandom-Led Interior Decorator

$50

Musician/queer performance firebrand Christeene links with photographer Brett Lindell in a book up for preorder through local Spaceflight Records, alongside new record Midnite Fukk Train.

$9.99

In "The Garage" portion of the world-building rapper's website, an overall-clad poster emphasizes Deezie Brown's Bastrop origins, equally integral to his music.
