Swing Kids were a hardcore band from San Diego, CA. Founded in the mid 90s, they played a frantic and emotional style of hardcore that also pulled influence from jazz. The band only released a few songs, a 7" and a split with Spanakorzo, before splitting up. They also featured members and future-members of such bands as Unbroken, The Locust, Yaphet Kotto, and more. After the tragic death of guitarist Eric Allen, the band reformed and played two final shows for charity. This original Swing Kids shirt, nicely worn in and faded with a few small pinholes, is a rare tee from the San Diego genre benders.
