Description

Mar Y Sol, meaning Sun and Sea, was Puerto Rica's first international music festival, and the fact that it was held during Semana Santa, their holy Easter week, did nothing to stop some serious turmoil from brewing. The organizers anticipated 60,000 people but only about 35,000 attended. By the end of the first day, many concertgoers were citing frustration from lack of facilities, water and food, and were already headed back to San Juan to fly home. Technical problems and criminal activity, including two murders, two drownings, violence and robbery, set the stage for a most unenjoyable visit. The redeeming feature was the music, of course, a stellar lineup of some of the best musicians around: Alice Cooper, Billy Joel, Fleetwood Mac, ELO, BB King, Dave Brubeck, the Allman Brothers, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Poco to name a few. Gridlocked traffic had Black Sabbath stuck at a hotel, where Ozzy threw a cherry bomb and literally bombed their room. Bloodrock was scheduled to perform but broke up instead. Elephants Memory took the stage and also played to an angry crowd stuck in the airport. Dire conditions and all, Mar Y Sol became a historically important musical and cultural event.

Men's t-shirts are made using the finest combed ringspun cotton to give you the softest, smoothest t-shirt around. A select few are a polyester-cotton blend which increases the t-shirts stretch and softness. These shirts are designed to fit like they did in the 70's and 80's, tailored to the body for a more youthful fit. We suggest thinking a size up when ordering these tees. Our "full cut" shirts are a little more forgiving like the classic beefy tee. The quality and feel remain the same. Be sure to check out our sizing chart to help assure that you'll get the perfect fit on the first try.

Should a tee not fit on the first try, we offer a quick and easy return policy (domestic orders only).
