Hey i dont know how to fix it but i advice not wearing it to the concert.  I hate it when people wear the band tshirts/dress up like the band to go to their concert. But hey do w.e you want Im not in a band so i dont know it from their point of view...Hope you have a BLAST and your shirt turns out kick ASS! (hope i didnt offend anyone. w.e)

How about if you fringe the bottom?  Just cut evenly all around the bottom of the shirt.  Depending on how long it is on you, you could make the cuts 2" to 4" deep.

Don't call it trash...I can make something with it!!!

Maybe a lace trim?

lace sounds pretty cool...what stitch would i use on my machine to sew it on? just a straight stitch or a zig zag?

anyone else got any ideas? the back is plain too

I saw a really cute ACDC T-shirt yesturday at hot topic where they cut a v shape out of the back of the shirt and there was a lace panel sewn in. If I am thinking of the right shirt that you have then you could sew a strip of red lace to the bottom of the shirt(Zig-Zag stitch) and then sew a lace panel in the back in red or black.

I believe in D.I.Y.
