Unless you’ve been living under a rock since last summer, we don’t need to tell you about Baroness’ long road to recovery since their bus accident. However, it looks like that long road is about to get a little shorter with the news of Baroness Relief, a benefit auction set up by friends up the band. The purpose of the auction is to help pay the medical bills resulting from the band’s accident.
Bands such as Meshuggah, Mastodon, Napalm Death, Kylesa, Neurosis, Municipal Waste, Red Fang, and more have donated everything from signed posters to instruments. Some of the more exciting items include Brann Dailor’s snare drum that he used during the recording of Leviathan, a Municipal Waste garbage pack, and a beer holster donated by Red Fang (which may or may not be the most bitchin’ item so far). The items will be put up on eBay in about 1-3 weeks.
So, if you’re in need of something cool from your favorite band and you want your money to go to a good cause, this is for you. Now, excuse me while I set up an eBay account exclusively for that beer holster.
