Lot Riot is a small team of volunteers and under-paid folks who believe that marching culture is valuable beyond the walls/lines of the gym/field. We, like you, were built by it.
Obviously, the shutdowns have greatly hit our sales (along with every other small business). Spring booths create the majority of our yearly revenue. Without these shows, we are left with serious production debt and nowhere to physically sell our inventory. Full transparency, we are on pretty thin ice.
Here’s our humble request: If you were going to be at any of our shows through the spring (full list here), and were going to swing by the booth – please swing by the website (you're already here!). And if you’re able, grab a tee or a hat. Or a gift card. We’d very much appreciate your support. To help, we’ve reduced all shipping charges to a flat $2 in the U.S.
Also, if you’re imagining your group in custom shirts, shorts, hats, hoodies, or beanies when band season begins, go ahead and hit us up now. Let’s work together!
We hope that your piece of Lot Riot gear will bring back incredible memories and hold you even tighter to your brothers and sisters in this extended off-season. That’s our goal at every booth, that’s our goal in Dayton, and that’s our goal every day.
That said, stay home. Help your neighbors. Keep drumming. Be positive. Get outside if you can.
Hope to see you all soon. Thanks for all the support.
-Matt & the Lot Riot crew.
TL;DR: We love you. We're on thin ice. We have rad new gear. If you're able, grab a shirt.
