A HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE FOR THE VANCOUVER PUNK IN YOUR LIFE

Written by Slone Fox



After tackling the essential gifts for your favourite punk (you know, like replacement studs for their jacket, and some incense to make the house they share with 15 random other people in the scene smell like The Rock Shop) it's time to move on to more frivolous gifts.


Just in time for the holidays, we've rounded up some of the medium-est of the medium-est and the best of the best things that the Vancouver punk scene has to offer. Think of it as the online version of a merch table, minus the bassist's frazzled sibling trying to figure out where the float money went. Check out the list below, and don't forget to support your local bands this season.

AANTHEMS VINYL // $25


Everyone in your life will be very (blood) fortunate to receive Aanthem's 12" vinyl LP, Blood Fortune. It includes unlimited streaming via Bandcamp, plus a high-quality download.


Check out our review of the album here.


Buy the album here.

STUTTR OPOSSUM T-SHIRT // $20


Hand-printed with love, these t-shirts feature a cute lil screeching opossum. Stuttr's newest EP is also available in their merch shop, and arguably sounds better than a screeching opossum.


Buy the t-shirt here.


LAVERNE DIGITAL ALBUM // $7


Give the gift of Laverne's newest album this season. If you don't have $7, simply send your loved one a link to their Instagram, which is a gift within itself.


Download the digital album here.

AVERSIONS T-SHIRT // $25


Featuring the "American Classic" design, Aversions' online merch store also offers a limited run 12" vinyl of their EP.


Purchase both of them here.

BRASS DIGIPACK // $12


This digipack from Brass comes with both the physical copy of the CD, as well as a high-quality digital download.


If you aren't after a physical CD, their newest track Occasional Gardener can also be purchased in their merch store.


You can purchase both here.

STRANGE BREED TOTE // $10


Need a way to carry around your vape pen and back-up pair of Old Skool Vans? Maybe somewhere to store the keys to your Geo Metro? Look no further than this Strange Breed canvas tote.


You can purchase it here.



TERMINAL CITY RATS DIGITAL ALBUM // $10


Get sustainable this holiday season and give the gift of digital. No packaging, no shipping, just a whole lot of rowdy good times.


You can download it here.



PEDLER HOODIE // $50


Nothing says Vancouver like a hoodie. Keep yourself cozy and ward off seasonal affective disorder with this bad boy. Bonus points if you wear it when it's obviously way too cold out for a hoodie like a real punk.


Grab one here.


NOT INPUBLIC FACE MASK // $12


Now here's a gift everyone needs, and not just because it's legally required. It'll no doubt make a great addition to the sexy, sexy apocalypse outfit you're planning.


Snag one here.


YOU BIG IDIOT T-SHIRT // $25


You Big Idiot has released a t-shirt featuring the biggest idiot of them all.


Wear your disdain on your chest by purchasing one here.





NECK OF THE WOODS HOT SAUCE // $13


During this year's Christmas dinner, pour the entirety of the bottle onto your meal to assert your dominance. Dead eye contact is a must.


Grab one here.



UNLEASH THE ARCHERS GLOW-IN-THE-DARK T-SHIRT // $21


Worried that people won't know how cool you are once the house lights go down? Work this glow-in-the-dark shirt into your ensemble to remain the belle of the ball in any lighting condition.


You can purchase one here.
