Cursive’s Tim Kasher wants to write you a song — though, there’s a catch. He’s doing it for charity. As part of Rock For Kids Annual Benefit Auction, which takes place on November 16th at Chicago’s Park West, Kasher will write a song for the highest bidder, or a privileged fan that has $1,000 to throw around.
He wrote a letter about it:
Tim Kasher of Cursive and The Good Life wants to write you a song. Customize what you’d like it to be about, or don’t – he’s got plenty of ridiculous things to say. This song will be exclusively yours, on a CD with some kind of nice-ish handmade packaging he’ll probably throw together last minute because he will likely have forgotten by then that he had promised some sort of nice-ish packaging. Hey, it’s really about the song here, okay? He’ll write out the lyrics for you as well. And he promises to not write about himself in the third person, like he is – I am – right now. Unless, of course, you’re into that kind of thing. Yours truly, Tim Kasher.
The current bid is at $100, which is quite a bargain. So, if you’ve been itching for Kasher to say something — perhaps an ode to Star Wars, a digression on dendrophilia, an anthem about dry walls, etc. — start collecting coins around the house or take out a loan.
Actually, you might want to do the latter after you see what else the auction has in store, which includes goodies like a signed copy of Radiohead’s OK Computer, signed lyrics to Michael Jackson’s “Beat It”, and even a signed flag from our re-elected POTUS. Start drooling over the list here.
FYI: Rock For Kids Annual Benefit Auction offers one-of-a-kind celebrity-signed memorabilia and unique experiential packages, all raising funds to provide quality music lessons to Chicago children at Chicago Public Schools in some of the most underserved neighborhoods in Chicago.
