dmb third man raffleIn addition to our MUNNY Silent Auction, The Record Exchange is raising money for Go Listen Boise with two bonus Record Store Day silent auctions:


One of the most coveted Record Store Day exclusives is the Dave Matthews Band Live Trax Vol. 1 4LP set. Demand for this item nationwide greatly exceeded the number of copies pressed. The Record Exchange ended up getting one copy, and we really want it to go to a DMB fan and not an online auctioneer.

So, instead of leaving it to fate and seeing the thing end up on eBay the next day, we’re holding a benefit silent auction for our single copy. Bidding will start on Friday, April 19 during our Record Store Day Exclusives Listening Party (6-8 p.m.). Bid sheet will be at the counter. First bid is the list price. Whatever we raise above and beyond the list price will go to Go Listen Boise. Bidding will end on Thursday, April 25 at our Munny Silent Auction Closing Party (5-7 p.m.).


Third Man Records, the label started by Jack White, recently issued a portable turntable in conjunction with Crosley. This entry-level turntable comes with USB out and custom Third Man branding, plus software for ripping and editing audio content.

Bidding will start on Friday, April 19 during our Record Store Day Exclusives Listening Party (6-8 p.m.). Bid sheet will be at the counter. Proceeds will go to Go Listen Boise. Bidding will end on Thursday, April 25 at our Munny Silent Auction Closing Party (5-7 p.m.).
