Cool Cool or Uncool...

I watched an interview with D.G. Recently, he was asked this question.

Would love to get the forum's opinion.. O.G. Foos, Newbies, & Foo's somewhere in-between :


Cool or Uncool?
Wearing a Foo T -shirt to a Foo Concert...


Cheers! : )

I usually don't but I've bought merch at a show and put it on over what I was wearing so I don't have to keep track of it.


wear what you want

If I have a T from a previous show I always wear it (same goes if I buy a T there, so I don't have to carry it, I tend to lose things) that doesn't just go for Foos
I also like seeing what other shows people have been too, it can be a great conversation starter!

Do you know what DGs response was? Not that that will stop me

Cool! I like trying to spot someone in the same top as me (the only time this is acceptable) or who has been to the same gigs I have.

I've done it before, but not all the time. It's wasn't until recently that I found out that some people frown on wearing a band t-shirt to their actual show, for whatever reason.

I mean, when people go to sporting events to watch their team, do most of them where jerseys for an entirely different team that plays a thousand miles away?

Ooo I've not seen this one, I know what I'm doing for the next hour, 37 minutes & 50 seconds thanks!

Also; I approve of Chris' hat. He looks like he's about to go watch some cricket

I have a mate who will NEVER wear a shirt of the Band he is going to see. We all laugh at him when he buys one at the merch stand, then either tucks it in his back pocket, or puts it on under another bands' shirt

I don't go out of my way to buy shirts of a band I'm seeing but bands like Foos where I have a bit of merch, I'll wear the shirt

"uncool"

I did wore my FF shirt on top of my shirt on Houston because I didn't think things through and bought the tee before the show and I didn't want to take care of it.

Meh. I've done it. If someone's so concerned about being cool, they should stay home. That said, I reckon Nirvana shirts at FF shows are a total no-no, but the next guy might have a different take on that. We're just making all this up as we go along so if you want to wear it, just do it, we're all just a sweaty smelly mass by the end anyway.

tbh I think the statutes of limitation may apply now?

I recall Dave saying that he noticed a shift in the past few years, the historical fans come to gigs wearing Foo shirts and now it's their kids who show up wearing Nirvana shirts

I have been wearing my foo hoodies to recent shows as they are really comfortable and warm.

Agree! I honestly love the women's stuff, the jackets are badass. (I always get a few nods of recognition when I wear my Foo jacket) I dig their stuff.

I pretty much always wear a Foos t-shirt of some kind to their gigs.. but these days it's mostly my Holy Shits one

I didn't know (or care) that some people look down on this.. no idea why.

But I don't think it makes you any less of a fan if you don't, often see lots of people with Pearl Jam, Soundgarden or Metallica shirts at gigs.

I never realised this was a 'thing'? I think it's cool seeing what other tops people have, and if I can't wear a FF top to a FF gig then bloody hell

I like the "inside joke" approach, I'll probably go to my next Foo gig with my Brennivin t-shirt or a Roswell Records one I'm planning to buy from their store.
