With the Chris Gray benefit just a few days away, news is flying fast and furious. We told you yesterday about the addition of Hayes Carll to the artist line up and gave you a rundown of every artist on the bill. Today, we have news from Live Nation.
Live Nation has donated two box seats including club passes and gold lot parking for the Black Keys/Arctic Monkeys show April 24 at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion to go in the silent auction!
Many thanks to the folks at Live Nation for the generous support.
But there's more...
In case you were unaware, there will be a TON of silent auction items available at the benefit Saturday for you to bid on with proceeds going to help Chris. And when we say there is some cool shit on this list, we are NOT kidding.
Items include an autographed guitar signed by Joan Jett, an autographed copy of Willie Nelson's Red Headed Stranger, a portable DJ deck, studio time at Sugar Hill Studios, every label variation of the legendary psychedelic 7" single "You're Gonna Miss Me" by Houston's own Thirteen Floor Elevators (a HUGE vintage music nerd haul) and tons of signed concert posters, prints, albums and more.
Someone is going to have to fight us for the signed Wilco Record Store Day poster.
