Every month, The Merch Table brings you the best and most bonkers merchandise you can find on Bandcamp. We commend bands and labels that get a little creative and think outside the tote bag. Whether it’s a fashion accessory, a piece of art, or something entirely unique, The Merch Table showcases inventive, original—and, occasionally, downright strange—stuff that you might want to get your hands on.

Compact Disc (CD), Vinyl LP

It’s Friday night and you get home from the show. You frantically search for the phone number of your local pizza place before they close at midnight (we all know the good ones aren’t on Seamless). You dial the number. You place your order and the pizza guy asks you, “What toppings?” You freeze, paralyzed by your options. Spicy pepperoni? Veggie supreme? Ham and pineapple? You decide to go with all three. These are the same options presented to you on this neat bottle opener from Liverpool’s aptly named Pizzagirl. Choose your topping wisely.
We jumped for joy when we heard Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith was setting up her own label, Touchtheplants, in Los Angeles and then jumped even higher when we saw the awesome merch. This cozy white hoodie with an illustration by Rob Moss Wilson is an excellent way to support the composer and her label. We’re waiting with bated breath for their next batch of releases.
If you’ve ever had your eardrums blasted to bits by a My Bloody Valentine record, you must own this tote bag.
