#FBF to when my kickass friends, @slantsofficial, won their unanimous (8-0) #SCOTUS victory!!! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Such an HONOR they wore my #madetoorder #tie on that historic day β€” pictured here on @simonthetam (left) in this awesome photo from @aclu_nationwide! β€οΈπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ ・・・ The Supreme Court ruled today that the government can’t deny a trademark to Asian-American rockers The Slants just because it doesn’t like their name. The Slants chose their name to reclaim and redeem a racial slur often used against Asians and Asian-Americans. Today’s decision will put a stop to the absurd practice of federal Patent and Trademark Office examiners acting as formal speech police. #aclu #firstamendment #1a #theslants #music 🎸🎹🎀 #flashbackfriday
Photoshoot. New pics coming soon #theslants #thebandwhomustnotbenamed #photoshoot #jadybates
Honored to be a part of this great panel on being a DIY artist and sharing advice with other musicians about creating a sustainable career #theslants #musicbiz #diybands #tourlife
Our song, From the Heart, debuted on the #ActToChange album. It was a compilation to support anti bullying efforts and featured @georgehtakei @barackobama @jlin7 @runrivernorth and more! #theslants #thebandwhomustnotbenamed #asianamerican #iamasian
Excited to share this interview with The Slants! Project Kintsugi and @slantsofficial dive into AAPI activism, how the band has changed, and their lives outside of the court.

Thank you to everyone who came to #musackcarnival2017! This is what it's about. @josemaldonado828 ( @sweetandtenderhooligans), Joe from @slantsofficial, and Musack kids jamming. More photos to come!
Capped off the day with a giant finale of singing End of the Line with an incredible slate of musicians like Ted Leo, Aimee Mann, Dan Wilson, and more #musackcarnival2017 #theslants #tourlife #tompetty #musackrocks
So proud of the hubby 😍. He performed with The Slants for @musackrocks and also did a cover with the Sgt. Peppers lonely heart club band orchestra. Him and @slantsofficial were amazing to say the least. #theslants #musackcarnival2017 #thebeatles #whenim64 #sgtpepperslonleyheartsclubband #pdx #lamusic #beverlyhills #livemusic #musician #musackrocks #marriedlife #wifey #hubby #asiancouple

With the recent court decision favoring Asian-American band, The Slants, is it ok to register offensive trademarks? Read more on the Bold Blog! Link in profile!
One would hope that my guitarist is better at playing music than parking. #theslants #stereotype? #floatingvan
WOW - can’t believe this was two years ago today!! 😱 Thanks to @simonthetam of @slantsofficial for this fun reminder β€” SO HONORED to have been there with you that day, Simon, & PROUD of all your hard work leading up to your #SCOTUS victory! πŸ˜˜β€οΈπŸ‘πŸΌ β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β€œOn this day 2 years ago, I went to the Federal Circuit court with @joexjiang, some incredible attorneys (Ron & Joel), and the @ACLU to plead our case. Armed with a #tie by @rachelparkties and dino socks from Jewels, I don't think I quite grasped how big it was all becoming yet.” #theslantsvsuspto #leevstam #thebandwhomustnotbenamed #tietuesday #theslants #mensweardesigner
From snow to sun, we are steadily making our way back to the Pacific Northwest. Just a few shows left beyond this tunnel! #theslants #thebandwhomustnotbenamed #tourlife #pctv #parkcity #spokane
"The show must go on." Driving through a snowstorm to get to our next show and one stop closer to home #theslants #tourlife #cantstopwontstop
Driving through the snow to get to our next appearance, a live performance on PCTV. It was almost 100 degrees when we first started this tour! #theslants #tourlife #winteriscoming
While taking a nap in our tour ride outside the venue, I noticed all kinds of street life in Denver: drunken singers, people on first dates, roller skaters, and other bands loading in equipment (and their hopes/dreams). #theslants #tourlife #chucktaylors #denver
Thank you @illegalpetes for feeding our starving band. Appreciate the hookup and support for the arts! #theslants #thebandwhomustnotbenamed #thebandwhomustbefed #starvingartists
Riding off into the sunset after an incredible show at @notredame @ndlawschool. Next stop, Denver! #theslants #thebandwhomustnotbenamed #tourlife #americathebeautiful #illinois

You see...I was exiled from the heavens you can't see with your eyes, a wingless demon adopted by angels, lurking the skies. With a microphone and soap box first things in plain sight, destined to recite these rhymes biblically then peacefully die. But the temptation of sin has my destiny hesitating, as I let fate collapse in my lap in exchange for fornicating. I extract my lips from the Succubus I was formally dating, and realize there was no love inside just an army of hatred. #BARS πŸ“Έ: @hilaryschuhmacher

LINK IN BIO Do you think the #FirstAmendment is first because it's popular or is it popular because it's first? While we know y'all have recently become avid #football enthusiasts, #CultureVOLT and @slantsofficial are gonna take this #Wednesday (side note: why is this word so hard to spell?!) to speak on the 1st from a slightly different angle. Incidentally, football is still mentioned, so we all win! . . . #theslants #simontam #portland #portlandmusic #supremecourt #trademark
