Flaming Lips, Kanye West others donate to Darfur Auction

I heard about this on both Facebook and MySpace:

Kanye, Wilco, Flaming Lips Items in Darfur Auction

Once again, Waxploitation has united a ton of excellent artists (and sure, some less than excellent ones too) in a benefit for the victims of the conflict in Darfur.

The label’s fourth auction for the cause has already begun, and it includes signed guitars and other items from Kanye West, Wilco, the Flaming Lips, the Decemberists, TV on the Radio, Gnarls Barkley, Gorillaz, Bloc Party, Aesop Rock, Common, El-P, Coldplay, Thievery Corporation, RJD2, and my personal faves (seriously) Deftones.

There are also unsigned items in the auction from Brian Wilson, Lupe Fiasco, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bob Marley, Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Don Cheadle, Bam Margera, and Adult Swim. You can access the auction here.

100% percent of the auction’s proceeds will benefit three organizations: Doctors Without Borders, Human Rights Watch, and Oxfam America.

If you’d like to help those organizations’ Darfur relief efforts even more, there’s also Waxploitation’s Causes 1 compilation.
