Rockin’ Bandit Babe Playlist

 Here at 2B, we were inspired to make a playlist that embodies our style, spirit & all around attitude. This playlist consists of all female rock bands from the 1960s. A lot of the bands seen here never made it BIG, but they impacted the music community immensely. These girls are the definition of Bandit Babes. Bang! Bang!

1. The Hairem – Hey You

2.Plommons – Last train to Liverpool

3.Continental Co-ets – I Don’t Love You No More

4.The Debutantes – A New Love Today (1966)

5.The Daughters Of Eve

6.The Girls – My Baby

7.The What Four – I’m Gonna Destroy That Boy (1966)

8.Ace of Cups – Simplicity

BANDIT Babe Braids

Thanks to Pinterest we’ve got some major hair envy happening over here. We’ve gathered our favorite braided looks for inspo we wanna try out asap. The secret beauty of braids, dear Bandits,  is they stay better with dirty hair. Oh yeah. We’re definitely planning on staying cozy with a furry coat, adorned with messy braids and drizzled with rain droplets this Fall..

Rhinestone Cowboy

Meet the man who brought flowing fringe and glittering rhinestones to all of the swooners & crooners of the 60’s and 70’s – Nudie Cohn. His suits have been worn by just about everyone in the Country and Rock n’ Roll world, such as Johnny Cash and John Lennon. He made Bob Dylan’s Mariachi suit, Sonny and Cher’s matching Native American looks, Gram Parsons marijuana leaf treasure, and Elvis’ ever amazing glitzy gold lamé suit! He brought the ultimate Bandit vibes from Nashville to Hollywood. Nowadays, stars like Jack White and Karen O are still rocking these glittering gems! Here’s a look at some of our fave Nudie suits…

Vintage Levi’s Ads

“Anyone can make a pair of blue jeans, but Levi Strauss & Co. made the first blue jean –– in 1873.” Being San Francisco based and lovers of all things western, we’ll just come right out and say it, BANDITS LOVE LEVI’S. Who doesn’t have their favorite distressed, super soft pair of vintage Levi’s to throw on at all times? Here’s a fun fact: Levi’s created the first jean for women, Lady Levi’s, which were born in 1934. Now, we gathered some of our favorite Levi’s Ads throughout the years, including a few gems that were deemed too risqué for the company & were never actually used commercially. Get ready for some booty, Bandits..

Outside Lands & Festival Style

Ah San Francisco, home to The 2 Bandits HQ & Outside Lands Music Festival. Outside Lands was born in 2008 & is held in beautiful Golden Gate Park. What makes Outside Lands so special compared to its California fest competitors like, Coachella or FYF, is rather than a stifling hot desert (just asking for heat stroke) or smoggy downtown LA, we get a change of scenery and hop around stages that are surrounded by woods and forestry. History of Golden Gate Park goes back to the 1860s, in SF’s Gold Rush days, the area was part of the “great sand waste” and considered “outside lands”. Great name for a festival that knows its history.

Tons of rad, bandit-esque artists have played the fest throughout the years including: Radiohead, The Strokes, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Cat Power, Neil Young, Stevie Wonder, Portugal. The Man, Arcade Fire, Beirut, The Joy Formidable, Paul McCartney, Willie Nelson, Hall & Oates and leading up to this year’s excitement: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Kanye West, The Killers, Lykke Li, Haim, The Kooks, Arctic Monkeys, Jenny Lewis, Warpaint, Spoon… just to name a few of our faves.

We’re SO excited to share a booth with our sister brand CAMP Collection (shopcamp.com)! Come visit us by the main stage and score some killer deals on samples, exclusives, and classic Bandit pieces!! We’ll also be doing a special Outside Lands Giveaway: While at the fest, take a photo with your 2B jewels, tag & hashtag @the2bandits #the2bandits to win $100 towards the2bandits.com

We can’t wait to see you Bandits there! Now soak in some Bandit festival inspiration, because what the F are we gonna wear?!
