As one of the two bookend clubs on either side of the Denny Way freeway overpass (the Off Ramp being the other) that ruled the Seattle scene during the early 1990s, when the city was discovered by the world. RKCNDY was a huge, two-level, warehouse-type space that had amazing sound and was an all around great place to catch a band most any night of the week. The closure of RKCNDY in 1999 was a hard hit to the all-ages scene, especially with Seattle's Teen Dance Ordinance still firmly in place for another three years. Pearl Jam and Soundgarden played there, repeatedly. Radiohead graced their stage in ’94.

Please refer to the size card below to help find the right size for you. Some people will say B+C shirts run a little small while others will say that they are 'true to size' so clearly, sizing is subjective at best as just like opinions, everyone's body is different. If you're on the fence about sizing, we always suggest going up a size as even high-quality pre-shrunk tees like these average about 1% shrinkage, all dependent on how you wash and dry them, of course.
