    This is what I wear when I play with Squirrelly Arts

    When I do some fill in gig or a guest spot on a song live, I usually wear Tripp NYC button up shirts, classy Tosin style.

    I have never liked or have been the one to do the "I just woke up, are we going on yet" type for live shows.

    I usually just wear straight white or striaght black V-neck shirts (like the nice kind you get from J-Crew or Banana Republic) with some tight, dark-washed rocker jeans. Occasionally a Tripp NYC button-up shirt or a H&M button-up shirt comes out, but that's only for when I'm going classy! End of story. :metal:



    (Of course, though, there was that one time me and the guys played a Buckethead tribute show and I dressed up like Buckethead..... :lol: )



    Rock on, ZOMBI3! :hbang:

    Usually band hoodie or crew neck if it's not a hot venue (typically for an old school hard core band) or a black v neck if it is a summer show or a hot venue, mesh gym shorts, usually black, but sometimes maroon, and murdered out vans authentics. In my old band we always just went for the all black look. it looks cool when everyone is wearing the same color and head banging in unison

    For Carpathia: dress shirt, blue jeans, nice shoes.

    Prometheus: leather jackets, sunglasses, black t-shirts.

    I really don't like the whole "cargo shorts, band t-shirt" thing that 95% of metal bands do. It just seems a bit unprofessional.

    I wear a lot of my normal clothes (band shirt, cammo pants, skate shoes) but if it's a big show then I'm definitely rockin the Dead to Fall final whirlwind or P.O.S. shirt. Represent.

    Very nice, I like the whole clean, sleek style, makes your guitarist look very out of place :)

    I wear whatever I happen to be wearing to work that day, usually since I'm leaving from work to go to shows. This means jeans/random t-shirt/maybe a flannel since I own a closet full.

    If I'm playing drums, basketball shorts, slip on shoes of some type, beard, that's it.
