TVD's Parting Shots

“... temperatures will rebound in a major way through the day, topping out into the mid 70s under mostly sunny skies. The warming trend will continue through the weekend as highs reach the mid to upper 80s both Saturday and Sunday. Along with the warmer temperatures comes a bit of humidity and the chance for a few afternoon thunderstorms, particularly out to the west toward the mountains. For the beginning of next week, highs will continue in the 80s both Monday and’re listening to TVD on the Radio. TVD time is 3:37 and THIS is DC’s Shudder To Think...”

It's a TVD/Yellow Bird Project Tee Shirt Giveaway!

Don’t think for a moment that because Record Store Day has come and gone for one year, that we here at TVD are done giving away cool stuff to those of you who spend a whopping 1:20 on average with us a day.

In fact, nothing can be further from the truth.

TVD is proud to have teamed up with The Yellow Bird Project, the charity tee shirt line whose designers include such names as Elvis Perkins, Laura Veirs, Bon Iver, Broken Social Scene, The National, Rilo Kiley, New Pornographers, Devendra Banhart, Wolf Parade, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Au Revoir Simone, Stars, The Shins, My Brightest Diamond, and Wolfmother to name JUST a few.

The Yellow Bird Project solicits tee shirt designs from the aforementioned artists and the proceeds all go to the musician’s charity of choice. Here’s how Yellow Bird puts it on their site:

“Yellow Bird Project is a Montreal-based, non-profit initiative. We collaborate with musicians in designing a T-shirt, we print and sell them on our website, and all of the money we make goes to charity. Which charity? Each of the artists gets to choose their own. We have three fundamental aims:
1) To make money for charities directly through T-shirt sales.

2) To raise awareness for charity organizations through artists’ endorsement.

3) To raise the profile of the artists we like.

We have specifically approached individuals that we think are creative and conscientious enough to make a difference.”

...and wouldn’t you know they came to TVD.

Two lucky winners will each receive the tee shirt of their choice from The Yellow Bird Project.

We'll accept your entries until 4/29 at noon and the winners will be notified directly by Yellow Bird.
