Threadless Hearts Ted Leo & The Pharmacists

2007_04_tedthread.gifLiving with the Living is the latest from Ted Leo & The Pharmacists. It has an obvious, impassioned, political edge that's easily discerned from reading the song titles alone. Ted has always been one to speak his mind and encourages others to do the same with a contest at Threadless. The goal is to design a t-shirt that relates the themes of Leo’s latest album. It’s not meant to be a Ted Leo marketing vehicle (no logos, please), but more of how Ted’s words and music have inspired the listener to look within for something they’d like to take a stand about and share with others.

Get those creative juices flowing and draw up a t-shirt design. These designs are not just open to the Ted-specific contest, but the ongoing Threadless competition, too. The Grand Prize includes a black 30 gb iPod, a Ted Leo knitted scarf, $300 Threadless gift certificate, cash money - $1500, to be exact, and more!

All the details are here. The deadline is May 15. Create. Repeat. Create.
