The JD Set & War Child Auction launch

| On 26, May 2011

The JD Set & War Child Auction launch
Hospital Club, 9th June 2011

Do you want to own Carl Barat’s T-shirt? Or Tim Wheeler’s shirt? How about a guitar signed by some of the biggest names in music including Texas’ Sharleen Spiteri, Stone Roses / Primal Scream legend Mani, The Smiths’ Mike Joyce, Ash’s Tim Wheeler, Divine Comedy’s Neil Hannon, Echo And The Bunnymen’s Ian McCulloch, The Enemy’s Tom Clarke and multi platinum artist Kate Nash?

This year’s JD Set saw four monumental headliners and a host of well known names and up and coming artists gracing stages at intimate venues in London, Dublin, Glasgow and Manchester with unique shows and collaborations honouring Pixies, Vampire Weekend, David Bowie and The Smiths. Throughout the series of gigs we have collected memorabilia and signed artefacts from the artists which will now be auctioned in aid of the War Child charity, the people behind the ‘Help’ album and a multitude of other musical moments. These artefacts will be previewed at a special event at The Hospital Club, London on Thursday 9th June.

This advance showing of the items can be seen on the 9th June and will be followed by an online auction lasting two weeks, to make the event that little bit more special and to continue Jack Daniel’s intimate relationship with the best music on offer, we will have one of the JD Set 2011 artists in Romeo (Magic Numbers) playing an exclusive acoustic set of tracks from the four heroes of this year’s JD Set; Pixies, Vampire Weekend, David Bowie and The Smiths.

Ben Knowles, Director Of Music at War Child, said of the event:

“War Child are delighted that Jack Daniel’s are supporting our work at their legendary JD Sets this year. The effect of war on children is not going away. Many are being recruited in to armed forces, forced from their homes and schools and living in danger on the streets every day. Through this important partnership, and through our shared love of great music, we are able to raise awareness of these issues and raise the money to help do something about it.”
