The National Design A T-Shirt For Charity

If you happen to be in the market for a new t-shirt of your favorite band then look no further than the Yellow Bird Project. These fine folks from Montreal have asked some of the biggest names in indie-rock to design a logo for a t-shirt for them to sell - with all proceeds going to a charity of the band’s choice. So far Wolf Parade, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Rilo Kiley, and The Shins have participated, along with many others.

Pictured above is the latest addition to the line, a new one from The National. For just 25 bucks you get a brand spankin new shirt and the chance to help out the people of SAFE SPACE - a New York based charity, which works with disadvantaged families and children to prevent foster care placement, and allow children the opportunity to grow up and live a safe and healthy life. They do this by working closely with over 20,000 families across NYC, and offering programs and services which serve to strengthen them, and promote self-sufficiency.

By the way, have you seen the video for Boxer standout, “Apartment Story”? It nicely echoes the very cool cover art, but apparently the T.V. told all the good looking young folks (showered and blue blazered, natch) to sit around for ¾ of the video looking elegantly bored, only to finally get up and start dancing at the end. Making cum on a different day, like this one. Love those happy endings.
