Today we launched our biggest holiday auction yet: with 21 rare collectible signed by Bob Weir, Phish, Pearl Jam, My Morning Jacket, The Roots, The Disco Biscuits, Dixie Chicks, Phil Lesh and so many more.
One of the coolest items is a signed copy of a book celebrating Joe Russo’s Almost Dead and their first 100 shows. Only 155 copies of the hard-cover were printed and none were made available to the general public until now. It’s signed by Joe and the entire band!
Other highlights include a signed poster from the Bob Weir/Phil Lesh show at LOCKN’ where they covered the Terrapin Station album in its entirely; a D’Angelico ‘Lightning Bolt’ Grateful Dead guitar signed by Bob Weir (one of just 8 made to commemorate the current Dead & Co. tour); a signed poster from Pearl Jam’s 2016 Fenway Park shows; a signed My Morning Jacket at Forecastle poster; a signed Phish poster 2016; a vinyl box-set of the Day of the Dead album signed by Bob Weir; a limited-edition Shepard Fairey Newport Folk Fest poster signed by WIlco and all the headliners; a Tedeschi Trucks Band Wheels of Soul tour poster signed by Derek, Susan and the full band; and posters from City Bisco 2016 and City Bisco 2017. Plus we’ve got signed posters dating back a few years from several gone but not forgotten festivals, with signatures from Bassnectar, Grace Potter, and Widespread Panic.
Proceeds from this auction will go towards our 2018 voter outreach efforts. We signed up 25,000 Americans for voter election reminders this year and hope to sign up 100,000 more in the coming year. These auctions make our work possible!
