4TheACLU

We’re still wiping the tears from our eyes here at the Famous Class HQ but now it’s time to help un-fuck America in whatever small way we can. That’s why last week we launched a Rarities Sale to support the American Civil Liberties Union, an organization that’s out there every day fighting for our rights. In three weeks we’ve already raised a total of $2,415 bucks, lets keep this going!

Just as we did last week, we’ve pulled six more previously sold-out titles from the personal archive and put them up on the site. Stock on these is SUPER limited and they are sure to go quick. Copies are limited to 1 per title per customer and 100% of the money is going to the ACLU.

Team Up

We’re so excited to announce our team up with our buds at Castle Face and In The Red to bring you one massive 53-item test press and rare vinyl charity eBay auction!

– Castle Face AUCTION LINK
– Famous Class AUCTION LINK
– In The Red AUCTION LINK

TPposterfix
This Dream Team fundraiser includes extremely rare vinyl test presses from Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, Parquet Courts, White Fence, Fuzz, Jay Reatard, Black Lips, Wand, and so many more. To top it all off, most of these test presses are signed or feature original art from the bands! The auction is going on now through March 22nd

We are proud to say that 100% of the proceeds will be going to two super-deserving charities. Castle Face’s proceeds go to Pathway Recuperative Care – 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. 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.
