Urban Outfitters Fights
Cancer with stellar Music Taste

 

by Brian Creech

 

 

Act quick, Uber-Hipster retailer (or is it post-Uber-Hipster
retailer), Urban Outfitters will be selling the tres-chic compilation Give. Listen. Help. Volume 5 for a
limited time only.  Arriving at retail
stores on October 15th and departing for good on January 31st, the 27 track
double disc collection features live versions and covers from Bloc Party, Jack
Johnson, Oasis, The Decemberists, and Ra Ra Riot, as well as unreleased tracks
from Garbage and The Little Ones.  Oh,
and there is a Radiohead song, “House of Cards,” the same version you probably
downloaded for free on In Rainbows. 

 

 

Snarkiness aside, all proceeds from the compilation will go to
the Pablove Foundation, created to support Pablo Castelaz, the 5-year-old son
of Dangerbird Records’ co-founder Jeff Castelaz and his wife Jo Ann Thrailkill.  You can follow Pablo’s progress over at
PABlog.

 

 

Big shout-out to Urban Outfitters and Filter Magazine for cluing
you in to some “hip tunes” while also helping a really cool kid fight
cancer.  Score one for music’s innate
ability to bring good things to the world.
