Toy, art, and clothing shop Pink Ghost already has a nifty selection of hip T-shirts one that comes to mind immediately is a shirt with a cartoon hamburger that coyly suggests he "wants to be inside of you." But the shop's newest arrivals are more hip-hop than just plain hip. Shadesofredd
is a new, locally based line of urban clothing that's hocking their wares at the PG. The Broward-based outfit designs T-shirts for the musically inclined; shirts that, in a wide range of colors, suggest things like "Music Defines Me." The line's creators, Slowsky, Redd, and Shade, say the shirts are all about expressing that music is a positive influence in people's lives for proof, just check out Shadesofredd's mascot Blastman. If you ever wondered whether a traffic sign-looking stick figure sporting a boom box could express pure happiness, here's your answer.
Pink Ghost is hosting a release party for Shadesofredd tonight at 7, complete with giveaways, breakdancing by Shade and crew, and music by DJ Stell-R. The shindig is totally free, though buying a shirt is always a good way to show support. Find the Ghost at 21 W. Las Olas Blvd., Suite B in Fort Lauderdale. Visit pinkghost.net for more info.
