Gutter Cat Gang launched in June 2021 as an exclusive, underground web3 social club with an emphasis on street culture. GCG specializes in collectable digital and physical art and fashion, real world and metaverse experiences, and more, all unlocked by holding GCG NFTs. After collaborating with the likes of Diamond Supply Co. and PUMA, Gutter Cat Gang is now teaming up with Chicago streetwear boutique Jugrnaut on a merch collection and in-person pop-up event.
The apparel collection consists of hoodies, crewnecks, sweatpants, tees, a bucket hat, and plush doll. The apparel comes adorned with GCG and and Jugrnaut graphics, including a Gutter Cat version of Jugrnaut’s Panthro mascot. Gutter Cat Gang NFT holders will have first dibs with exclusive access to the pop-up at Jugrnaut from 2-5pm, before opening to the public at 5pm. The event will include music, food, and drinks, with Chicago DJs Cut-Cuz and Just.One providing the vibes throughout the event.
“We’ve wanted to work with the Gutter Cat Gang since the beginning,” says Manny Rodríguez, co-founder of Jugrnaut. “GCG NFTs are some of the most coveted, and they’ve built a brand that recognizes and honors subcultures that are important to their community. Plus our mascot is in the cat family, so we’re practically related!”
“We have a deep appreciation for independent Chicago streetwear brands,” says the Gutter Cat Gang team. “Chicago’s creative community is driven by people like Manny and his team who created a subculture of loyal fans, like Chance the Rapper. They embody the Chicago culture — community-centric and rich in diversity. Jugrnaut’s art style is what attracted us to this partnership as we feel that it aligns very well with the Gutter Cat Gang brand.”
For Gutter Cat Gang NFT holders that can’t make it to the pop-up, there will also be an online drop the day after the event. Gutter Cat holders will have access to the online drop on May 1st at 1pm ET, while holders of other OG Gutter Species (Cat, Rat, Pigeon, and Dog NFTs) will gain access starting at 1:30pm ET. More info on the online drop can be found here. Some merch will be available exclusively at the pop-up, while other merch will be available exclusively online.
