This Saturday, August 31, The Cure will headline the Pasadena Daydream Festival, an event curated by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band and put on in conjunction with Goldenvoice.

Earlier this week, the set times for the eclectic festival were announced, and another big bit of news came through on Monday: One of the guitars played by Robert Smith at the show will be signed by Smith and donated for an auction, with proceeds benefiting some notable charitable organizations.

Via the news release:

Robert Smith will be donating his guitar played during the show to benefit Free Arts, Inner-City Arts, Little Kids Rock, Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation and The Painted Turtle. This contribution is made in addition to a $1 per every ticket sold donation to these music and arts education organizations and local charities (for more about each of these organizations, please see the full, alphabetical list below).

Redesigned for 2019, the new Schecter Robert Smith Signature UltraCure has a sleeker offset chambered mahogany body. Armed with dual Seymour Duncan ’59 humbuckers and a Bigsby vibrato, the new UltraCure has a set-in neck design with a 25.5” scale neck, ebony fingerboard, Mother-of-Pearl vintage block inlays and side glow-dots for dark stages. The donated guitar will be one of three UltraCures played onstage by Robert Smith at the Pasadena Daydream Festival on Saturday, August 31st, and it will be signed by him immediately after the show.

The auction link for the signed guitar is currently up at this site:

As for the rest of the Pasadena Daydream Festival, sets on the afternoon and evening will come from Pixies, Deftones, Mogwai, Throwing Muses, The Joy Formidable, Chelsea Wolfe, The Twilight Sad, Emma Ruth Rundle and Kælan Mikla.
