Austin’s own 2020 Grammy Nominated Black Pumas and our upcoming soccer team Austin FC have teamed up to give back! Together, they are launching an exclusive co-branded t-shirt to raise funds for the Black Pumas’ “Know You Better” campaign which benefits Austin music venues and record stores.
Since no large gatherings are allowed due to COVID-19 the Austin music industry is really taking a hit. So we love seeing collabs like this happening throughout the city.
Austin.com is and always has been a site that celebrates and promotes the unique people and places of Austin, TX and surrounding cities. Though many businesses, locations, and events are closed at this time, we continue to highlight those things so that you can plan to experience them in the future.
The limited-edition Black Pumas / Austin FC tee will be available online through Black Pumas’ website. A portion of proceeds from each shirt sold will benefit the “Know You Better” initiative which is devoted to preserving Austin music institutions through these difficult times until it is safe to open the doors once again.
The design is a mash-up of the Black Pumas’ logo and the Austin FC crest. The number 33 adorns the back of the shirts, a nod to the Black Pumas song “OCT 33.”
Here’s the design:
