If you're anything like me, you haven't started Christmas shopping, or if you have, you still have a few things left to get.  (that's what I keep telling people)  You've probably got your younger kids the must have toys of 2020, and you've got your parents "World's Best Poppa" photo coffee mug ordered.  You might still be having trouble figuring out what to get your moody teenager or even your "mute" niece/nephew who refuses to tell you what they want.  Don't worry, I've got you covered.  Here you'll find a few tips on what to get those hard to shop for rock fans, and where the best Black Friday deals are!

  • Hot Topic - Its the best place to find a wide variety of music/pop culture gifts at fairly low prices.  From t-shirts, hats, Funko Pops, even jewelry and makeup, they're sure to have something to stuff in those angsty-stockings.  Right now they've got;  $12 Tees, Funko Pops Buy 2 Get 1 Free, and 30% off almost everything online. 
  • Band Merch Shops - These items tend to be a little more pricey, but they are licensed, and some bands like HELLYEAH, Lamb of God, and Avenged Sevenfold have 20-25% off for Black Friday.
  • Spencer Gifts - They may not have a huge selection of music related merch, but they do have great novelty gifts, and they are offering 25% off holiday products, and also free shipping over $20.
  • SHOP LOCAL - Some gifts are hard to find locally, but there are a TON of great stores in the Quad Cities to make sure you visit this season.  Abernathy's has amazing one of a kind items.  Co-Op Records Moline is offering buy 3 get 1 free used products.  While you're there, make sure to pick up a copy of the I-Rock 93.5 Local Stage CD.  You can also get a copy at Shumaker Guitar Works, and Premiere Jewelry in Davenport.  Proceeds from this awesome collection of local talent goes to Toys For Tots.   Make sure to help give all the kids of the QC a great Christmas!

Don't be like me and wait until December 23rd to figure out what the hell to get for those problem children in your life!  While you're at it, get some awesome band merch for yourself!  Let's face it, those angsty, black wearing, moody teenagers are just a carbon copy of all of us from not so long ago.
