Asheville, NC indie rock band Wednesday & Orindal Records are auctioning & raffling five rare, red vinyl copies of Wednesday’s 2021 album Twin Plagues to raise funds for Asheville’s new community of Afghan refugees.
40+ Afghan refugees will be arriving in Wednesday’s hometown of Asheville, NC over the coming weeks, many of whom were forced to leave their homes in Afghanistan under extreme duress. The money raised by the vinyl auctions & raffle will directly support Mark Capon of Harvest Records’ “Asheville Welcomes Afghans” Gofundme fundraiser. All proceeds will be used in collaboration with Catholic Charities Asheville to cover costs like rent, transportation, food, clothing and supplies, medical care & English education for refugees.
More information on the fundraiser can be found here: gofundme.com/f/b3rv2h-asheville-welcomes-afghans
There are only five red vinyl copies of Twin Plagues in the world! They were the first copies of the album pressed by Smashed Plastic Record Pressing of Chicago, IL as “transitional records” between another album’s red vinyl pressing & the full retail pressing of Twin Plagues.
Wednesday & Orindal Records are offering two of the red vinyl records to collectors via eBay auctions ending on Thursday, November 4. Those auctions can be found here: ebay.com/usr/orindalrecords
The remaining three red vinyl records will be raffled off to donors of the “Asheville Welcomes Afghans” Gofundme who email proof of donation to SendWednesdayStuff@gmail.com. Winners will be selected at random & announced on Thursday, November 4.
Starting November 11, Wednesday is touring the eastern United States in support of Twin Plagues. You’ll find all of their tour dates below.
