Hilltown Families
These folks decided to be the first (as far as I know) to put together a t-shirt contest for bands like ours that appeal to kids and families. Their judges had the incredible wisdom to award one of our cool tie-dye t-shirts a "Kids Pick." They also have a radio show, downloadable MP3's of their shows and a blog. Besides all that, they're really nice people and we like them. Check them out. http://hilltownfamilies.wordpress.com/2007/11/17/111707
