Blurt2 Tease T245.JpgWhen the Plain White T’s are on the road, someone has to sell their T-shirts for them. For the past four years that has been Carlsbadistan’s Aileen Burns, according to a story in the San Diego Reader.

My responsibilities include picking designs, ordering, handling shipments on tour, selling merchandise during shows, settling with venues, and keeping track of stock,” says the 24-year-old Carlsbad resident. . . “The hardest thing about my job is uncertainty about our future scheduling. I can’t plan things very far in advance because we may or may not be on tour. It’s also difficult to have a personal life because you’re never in one place very long. And, as a female, sometimes the job can be tough, physically.”

So that’s where she’s been all this time. . .
