“As previously reported, former Rogue Wave bassist and Magnolia Electric Co. touring member Evan Farrell died late last year in an Oakland apartment fire. Farrell’s untimely passing has weighed heavily on many, and none so much as the wife and two children the beloved musician left behind.
Several big names have stepped forward to help the Farrell family by contributing unique items to a benefit auction hosted by friends of Evan. Among the goods available now on eBay for bidders: a signed copy of Thom Yorke‘s The Eraser, a printer’s proof for the New Pornographers‘ Challengers bearing the signature of Mr. A.C. Newman, a signed copy of Joan of Arc‘s classic Live in Chicago, 1999, and a bunch of awesome posters and rare screen-prints from Jay Ryan and Mat Daly of Chicago’s own Bird Machine printmaking collective (the folks responsible for lots of snazzy Pitchfork Music Festival promotional material as well). More items are expected to hit the auction block, so you’d do well to bookmark that eBay link up there.
Most of the current auctions end on the evening of Sunday, February 17 (with the Newman one ending the following Tuesday morning), and all proceeds once again go to Evan Farrell’s family. You may also still donate directly to the Farrells via PayPal by clicking here.”
