NEW YORK, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- For the second year in a row, Playboy's Rock the Rabbit program will fuse rock, hip-hop, art and fashion in conjunction with the magazine's annual March music issue (on newsstands and at http://www.playboydigital.com Friday, February 8). This year Jack Daniel's is sponsoring the program, and will host a late night party at SXSW in Austin celebrating the project. Playboy asked twenty musicians, from icon Iggy Pop to buzzworthy Jamie T, to design a custom line of limited edition t-shirts and place their own personal stamp on the Rabbit Head brand and logo. Six of the artists asked to participate in this project are featured in a fashion pictorial shot by legendary shutterbug Mick Rock in Playboy's March issue, while the other artists will appear online at http://www.rocktherabbit.com. The artists range from up and coming rockers to established hip-hop musicians. Playboy will offer the limited edition Rock the Rabbit custom designed T-shirt line to consumers at select Bloomingdales nationwide as well as online at http://www.shopthebunny.com, with other retail partners announced in the future. The original prototype tees will be auctioned off with proceeds going to Rock the Vote (http://www.rockthevote.org/.)
