Published Oct 12, 2017Hurricane Maria has left Puerto Rico in a state of crisis, and to help raise money for recovery efforts on the island and surrounding areas, Mac DeMarco has teamed up with Captured Tracks and Discogs to auction off some limited-edition vinyl test pressings.
Four vinyl test pressings of DeMarco's 2012 mini-LP Rock and Roll Night Club have been made available for purchase through Discogs, with 100 percent of the funds going towards Caribbean hurricane relief initiative Waves for Water. The records have been signed by DeMarco, who also included a unique doodle on the gold sleeve.
Each variant has been listed at $1,000 USD, with an option to "make an offer" for those feeling more generous. Both Discogs and Captured Tracks will make an additional donation of $250 from each organization for each variation sold, with the site having waived all sale fees. "Love you P.R., keep your chin up!" DeMarco added.
