    You know the deal with band gear: You go to the concert of your favorite band, you float on cloud nine through the entire show, and then run to the merch table to scoop up a souvenir. It’s all good until that of-the-moment group's band tee is kinda passé — rendering your find all but useful in the grand scheme of your wardrobe.

Plus, we’re particularly enamored with the stealthy, good-enough-to-eat art on the band’s versatile bandannas, which will run you a mere $10 and look decidedly more Barneys than backstage.

    Bands, take note: Phoenix has mastered the key to a band tee with appeal that may even outlast the fickle, oft-temporary buzz of some music groups all together.
