Get Cape. Wear Cape. Sell yourself on eBay

By | Published on Friday 13 August 2010

Sam Duckworth, aka Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, has put himself up for sale on eBay. Times, it seems, are getting really tough in the music industry. No, not really. He’s auctioning himself in aid of Oxfam, and will play a gig in the home of the highest bidder. Proceeds will go to help the victims of the recent flooding in Pakistan. Last time we looked, the bids were up to £1120, which is quite a lot. And there are still five days to go.

Duckworth said of the auction: “A higher than usual monsoon season in Pakistan has caused flooding to ravage this beautiful country. Infrastructure has collapsed, four million people are left homeless, malnourished and in desperate need of aid, the biggest natural disaster in many years. As a result I put a note up on Facebook seeing if anyone would be interested in donating money to the DEC/Oxfam appeal in exchange for an ‘in your house’ acoustic gig. Response was overwhelming. As a result I have decided to put it up for auction via the Oxfam eBay store”.
