Unique music auction in aid of homelessness announced for Whelans

The Monster Irish Music Auction has just been announced as a new initiative to raise money to combat homelessness, with Irish bands and musicians being asked to donate signed copies of albums, vinyl records and more.  Once a sizeable collection has been reached, it will then be auctioned off in one massive lot to the highest bidder, with the aim to raise at least €25,000 for division across the four provinces.  The brainchild of Peter Meade, who has already seen success running similar initiatives from Abner Brown’s Barber Shop and more, this is his most ambitious project yet and will be held in late June at Whelans and streamed live over the internet.

In a band?  Solo artist?  Want to get involved?  Then we urge you to support the cause by sending signed CD, Vinyl or merchandise to any of the following addresses: 

Inner City Helping Homeless, 37 Killarney Court, Dublin 1

Man in Hat, c/o Abner Browns Barbershop, 6 Rathgar Road, Rathmines, Dublin 6
