Joy Raygun Makes Us Look Punk

I have had quite the time finding Women in Rock patches. Yes, you can buy vintage ones on eBay, etc. but that gets expensive and they're never big enough for back patches. Plus, there isn't enough of a variety of the Women in Rock I'm looking for. I was starting to get distressed and depressed and then I found Miss Joy Raygun on Etsy. What do you know, she also lives in Cincy and has a badass rock n' roll Etsy store!!!

Joy started Raygun Industries after college when she realized she wanted to make things and become self-sufficient rather than work for a large business. Joy focused on making her own rock n roll products (patches, handmade clothes, etc.) all inspired by music, art, comic books and science fiction. Luckily for Avid Noise, she makes awesome patches including Kathleen Hanna, Patti Smith, Suzi Quatro, Joan Jett, The Cramps and many more. I think I may just have to keep the Cramps one for myself!! 

Fun fact: Joy's favorite female musician is Becky Bondage from Vice Squad. Be sure to check out Joy's store, Raygun IndustriesBelow are the patches I had to have for Avid Noise! Check out the Patti Smith vest as well available on Avid Noise's Etsy store.
