Hometown Curse hats now available

The latest Hometown Curse have been available for around a week now and I'm incredibly proud of them. This is definitely the highest quality cap I've ever put out and I've been putting them out for 8 years now.

Rosa Punx

Rosa's last show at Sedition Books. Houston, TX. 2005. Photo by Petrine TX. Before folk-punk became the self-parodying absurdist oogle shitshow it is now, it was a pretty fun thing to partake in when you were sick of whatever punk band you've seen or were playing in for the millionth time in a row. Most of the acoustic bands and musicians I remember seeing from around this time were pretty much using these folk/country projects as a way to take a break from their main bands (Chuck Ragan and Rumbleseat from Hot Water Music, Chad Price from ALL, the Saint Catherines moonlighting as Yesterday's Ring, etc.). They were continuing what groups and musicians like Billy Bragg, the (Young) Pioneers, Tattle Tale, and the...
