TEN BANDS ONE CAUSE BENEFIT PINK VINYL LISTENING PARTY SEPT. 27 – FREE PINK GURU DONUTS ALL DAY LONG!

unnamed-1For the third year in a row, RED Distribution has teamed with an array of artists to offer limited-edition exclusive pink vinyl versions of new and recent albums for the Ten Bands One Cause fundraiser, and The Record Exchange is celebrating with an all-day listening party on Tuesday, Sept. 27!

Join us to hear tracks from the albums and enjoy a free pink donut from our friends at Guru Donuts! The first 10 people to purchase vinyl get a CD of Gilda Radner’s classic 1979 album “Live from New York” free with purchase!

Over the last 2 years, RED has donated over $65,000 to Gilda’s Club NYC by shipping pink vinyl to retailers all over the country during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Named after comedian Gilda Radner, who passed away from the disease at the age of 43 in 1989, Gilda’s Club is an organization that provides community support for both those diagnosed with cancer and their caretakers.

Ten Bands One Cause returns Sept. 27, but this time things are a little different. Cancer impacts all of us, so RED open it up to the industry and WEA answered the call. Seven of the 10 bands are RED acts and 3 are WEA acts. Their goal together is to raise more money this year than RED did in the first two years.

2016 Ten Bands One Cause titles:

AnthraxFor All Kings
Courtney BarnettSometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit
Ed SheeranX
Jim Breuer and the Loud and RowdySongs from the Garage
My Chemical RomanceThree Cheers for Sweet Revenge
NOFXFirst Ditch Effort (available Oct. 7)
OpethSorceress (available Sept. 30)
