Can Holiday: Buy a Musical Instrument Day – May 22


Origin

Unknown.

How to Celebrate

Today is a good day to go buy a musical instrument.  Maybe you have always had a desire to learn to play an instrument. Perhaps you already play an instrument and are ready to try something new.  Whatever the case, support your local music shop and buy an instrument today whether is a bass, guitar, drums, banjo, saxophone or harmonica.

The Can

2005 Antarctica Beer Boa Do Ceará Music Can from Brazil

2005 Antarctica Beer Boa Do Ceará Music Can from Brazil

To celebrate this day, we selected the 2005 Antarctica Beer Boa Do Ceará Music (translated: Good Music From Ceará) can from Brazil.  Ceará is a northeastern state in Brazil.  On it is a drum set sitting on a stage of multi-shaded blue stripes.  The Toms on the set look like Antarctica beer cans with the Antarctica penguin logo.  The logo is also on the bass drum.  The other text on the can says, “Musica Boa Combina Com O Que Mesmo?” which very loosely translates to “Really Good Music Combines With What?”

Happy Buy a Musical Instrument Day (5/22)!
