Mars Volta is IN! But who left the dogs out?

You’ll remember our March announcement regarding the highly-anticipated Mars Volta box set:

The verdict is THREE copies! Yes, ATMV has received three copies of the priceless treasure at our retail price of $699. This, despite the fact that all 5,000 limited pressings were sold out prior to the official release date of April 23rd. This Mars Volta “Holy Grail” is presently commanding nearly or over $1,000 per set!

So, how do we give you fair chance to own this collectible of collectibles? A raffle! And it starts NOW at $5 a ticket with all proceeds distributed to our favorite cause: area animal rescue organizations. Loretta Hyde, Executive Director of the Animal Rescue League of El Paso, says “Rescue operations have really been hurting — underfunded and over-stressed for the past year. This is a unique and exciting way to help us all get back on track.”

IMPORTANT: The drawing is not for the Box set itself, rather the opportunity to purchase this prized collectible. And there’s no limit on the number of tickets you can purchase to increase your chances of winning.

Since Mars Volta was conceived by local artists, we thought it would be fitting to use their huge success to draw much-needed attention to abused, hungry and homeless animals in our area. Your ticket purchases will go a long way to finding many of them relief — even forever homes!

Don’t miss our drawing for the three winners and donation totals, all to be announced during a live-streaming Facebook event, Friday, May 21st at 7:45 p.m.!
