Studio for Schools, a non-profit started by the Growlers drummer Scott Montoya and operated with his dad, seeks to design and build music and film production studios in low-income schools. In support of the project, the Black Keys, the Coathangers, Ian MacKaye, Modest Mouse, Tony Hawk, and more have donated rarities to live auctions that end May 17. “This is a unique opportunity for us to raise awareness and money for this cause,” says the Coathangers’ Julia Kugel in a press release. “I have personally been to the studio they are building at Santiago High School in Garden Grove, CA and have worked with the kids there. It’s amazing to see the lights going off in their heads!”
Items on the auction block include a Black Keys superfan pack with a signed copy of The Big Come Up, a Coathangers rarities pack that includes signed and test pressings of Nosebleed Weekend, a Burger Records starter pack with test pressings of Enjoy’s Another For Joyand Puzzle’s Soaring, a 12” test pressing of “Whenever You See Fit” by Modest Mouse, a 20 Years of Dischord box set signed by Ian MacKaye, and various other CDs and bits of paraphernalia.
