Our new friend Dave Leslie scored us some very cool merch from Grizfest, which he attended recently in his capacity as a The Glorious Sons fanboy. We met Dave a while back when Starsik opened for TGS and Big Sugar at Impact Live’s 30th Anniversary Party. Well, it seems the guys in TGS remember the Heavy night in Barrie with Starsik so Tony Silvestri offered to wear one of the Hopefest shirts we sent with Dave on stage that day. Unfortunately, our shirts couldn’t be found before that set but because of how much Dave had talked us up backstage Bif Naked, Theory of A Deadman, Head of The Herd, Puddle of Mudd, The Rising Suns, Jerry Doucette, The Holdouts, & Safari Jeff all signed both of the Hopefest shirts we sent out with Dave and two Grizfest shirts provided by the festival management staff. We even got a tweet about how Tony Silvestri from The Glorious Sons wants to buy a shirt to wear on stage. We could never do what we do for SickKids without help from all these amazing people so not only will Tony get the first Hopefest 2015 shirt, but we are openly inviting anyone who had a hand in these excellent collab merch prizes to come to the show and visit us. You never know who you might see out to support SickKids.
