Marina City Band

6-Mar-12 – (Above) Two t-shirts being sold by the band Marina City. Why? It is a surprise. ’We are printing t-shirts for an upcoming surprise that we’re going to [announce] soon,” the band posted recently on its Facebook page.

The band was asking fans to select the best of five designs. Other shirts included dark but probably true sayings such as, “Dreams only come true when you’re dead” and “I’m not going down this time.”

Marina City will actually play at Marina City on March 31, headlining a show at House of Blues. Gushed the band on Facebook, “This is the biggest show any of us have played and we have the honor to do it on our debut show!”
