100% of proceeds to go charity.

Indie labels Castle FaceFamous Class and In the Red are clubbing together to auction off test pressings with all proceeds going to charity. On offer are vinyl rarities from Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees, as well as Parquet Courts, White Fence, Fuzz, Jay Reatard, Black Lips, Wand, and plenty more.

To top it off, most of the test presses are signed or feature original art from the bands. In fact John Dwyer has hand painted all of Thee Oh Sees’ Castle Face releases.

Proceeds from Castle Face auctions will go to  Pathway Recuperative Care, a charity who provide outpatient care for the homeless of Los Angeles, reducing hospital stays and working with patients on their pathway to housing with dignity and respect. While Famous Class and In The Red will be donating to the Save The Music Foundation – which provides funding for music education in public elementary and middle schools that do not currently have an instrumental music program in place.

All auctions are running from now until March 22nd. Check out the full list of releases below and click on the links for the auction pages.
