This sweet vintage punk tee is from the Washington D.C. based punk band Dag Nasty and it commemorates their 1988 Field Day album tour. The band was formed by Brian Baker of Minor Threat, Colin Sears and Roger Marbury of Bloody Mannequin Orchestra, and Shawn Brown. The band opened for The Descendents for a US tour before disbanding. They reformed again later this time with Baker, Peter Cortner, Doug Carrion, and Scott Garrett.
Field Day was released in 1988 from Giant Records and it featured a cover of the song "Staring at the Rude Boys" by the band The Ruts. It also included a new recording of the band's song "Under Your Influence" which was first heard on the Dag Nasty's debut LP Can I Say. The band split up again shortly after touring to promote Field Day.
The next time they reformed was in 1992 with Dave Smalley who had provided lead vocals on Can I Say. Together Baker, Smalley, and original members Marbury and Sears recorded and released the album Four on the Floor.
