Many Thanks to Everyone

Despite my best efforts, the House of Swank Clothing Empire continues to grow some every month. Many thanks to everyone who's bought stuff, gave advice, sent good vibes, let me set up a booth, or shared a beer in time of need. Seriously, this thing is as much of a community effort than anything I've done. It's been rad. 

Hugs and kisses,

OK peeps, by popular request, I've now got beer koozies available in the 919 y'all, Moonshine, and Pass the Bacon styles. Summer's coming, so keep your beverage of choice cold. I've also got pinback buttons for several styles now, so get geared up right.

May Events for Johnny Swank

Man, May is going to be all kinds of crazy, but in the best way possible! Here's my schedule (so far) for the month.

May 6 (Sun): Durham, dTownMARKET at Motorco
May 19 - 20 (Sat & Sun): Pour House, Raleigh. Implosure Art Show

I'm sure there's some other stuff that I'll end up over-committing to too :)

By popular request, I'm bringing back the Pass the Bacon Shirts! I really dig these things, and this was one of the first shirts I made for the House of Swank Tshirt Empire. Get em here:

More merch coming out in the next week, including beer koozies, pin back buttons, and more! Some out to see me at one of the markets and check 'em out!

Lemme know if you'd like me to play a live set, or set up the House of Swank Tshirt Yurt at your Market or Business. I hate being bored :)

Johnny Swank at NCSU Campus Farmers Market and Scrap Exchange

So lots of cool stuff going in the House of Swank world this week. I'll be doing an acoustic set at the NCSU Campus Farmers Market on Wednesday, March 13 from around 11am - 12pm. I'll be invading Durham Friday night to play at the Scrap Exchange's First Friday event. I'm also going to be debuting a new line of recycled shirts for their ARTFUL ROBOTS! exhibit. Super-pumped about working with both these folks. 

Still have a few ST PADDY's Day shirts left, but they're going quickly. The House of Swank tshirt line has really taken off, and I'm already making plans to expand over the course of the year. You can find my shirts at Epona and Oak and Revolver here in Raleigh, and soon (can't say anything yet!) to some locations in Durham and Chapel Hill. If your shop is interested in carrying my line via wholesale or consignement, I'm all ears. Just gimme a holler. 

I'm always up to set to the House of Swank Shirt Yurt if anyone knows of a venue that needs some proper swag.

Thanks again for everyone's support. Without you folks, none of this music and clothing stuff would be possible. 

Take care,

-Johnny Swank

Johnny Swank at Raleigh Times First Friday


Just a heads up that I'll be setting up shop right in front of the Raleigh Times (14 East Hargett Street, Raleigh) this Friday for their First Friday event. Get your Christmas shopping done early while you get your drink on! The street's going to be blocked off, and I'm right across from the main beer tent. Come out out to the House of Swank Yurt and say howdy!

Can't make it? No sweat. Cruise over to my Etsy shop and pick up a rad tshirt, sticker, or onesie now!
