The band is looking to their fans to design the artwork to Cosby Sweater Live at the Brooklyn Bowl and have opened a contest for fans to submit their designs.

Any artist that wishes to enter must have their submissions in by June 19th, 2013. Send all artwork in jpeg format to cosbysweatercontest@gmail.com. A winner will be chosen on June 21, 2013.

Sweet. Joel sitting in, perhaps is this the plan for their hiatus or break up next year all the roadies and crew are talking about? I’d be all for it if Joel joins Cosby Sweater full time. We all know about the problems going on with UM and it’s just tough to be creative after more than fifteen years of ego/ egos. If Cummings is one of the couple guys deciding weather to quit Vince s sweatshop before Mayan Holidaze Cosby Sweater fans welcome him.

Great story. My friends and I were at a Bath house in Castro and my buddy Steve’s nickname is Steve the Plunger because he loves Joel’s playing on Plunger. We were listening to the Summer Camp show and he was giving me a wagon pull in our new Fiat. So after he released me and we went in the bath house we were cleaning off and this infectious music was playing. I thought the pool area at the bath house was going to start dancing or more. I asked and it was Cosby Sweater on the speakers. I’m glad the wagon pull was in our new car although the new interior is angry because Cosby Sweaters music made me ready to go. Given UMs openness to our community and how pretty much 25% of UM shows are LGBT I love this combo. Trust me it will get you off.
