On May 8, a John Stabb memorial show was held. We had hoped it would be a benefit, but John passed away the day before. Many participants signed this screen print in order to help us raise funds to pay off John’s medical bills and provide assistance to his wife, Mina.
THIS IS A ONE OF A KIND PIECE OF DC HARCORE PUNK MEMORABILIA!

In December 2012, yours truly helped Government Issue make some shirts to sell at the Salad Days shows at the Black Cat in DC. Living in North Carolina, I asked noted graphic artist Brian Walsby to create a design. What he came up with was awesome. So awesome that he is working with JohnStabb.com for a fundraising graphic.
The Salad Days shows were a great weekend of DC punk rock. I helped run GI’s merch table and sold some shirts and met a lot of great people.
I have some of these shirts left over. I’d like to sell you one to help raise funds for John and Mina. A shirt will be a flat $20 and include shipping and handling.
