Drone Not Drones: The 5th Annual 28-Hour Drone at The Cedar

For the fifth year in a row musicians from across the musical spectrum unite to create a continuous, uninterrupted, 28-hour drone of unified sound to raise money for Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).

Wikipedia says "Drone music is a minimalist musical style that emphasizes the

use of sustained or repeated sounds... It is typically characterized by lengthy audio programs with relatively slight harmonic variations throughout each piece compared to other musics."

Be part of a unique experience while supporting a just cause. Come by before work, after work, or both. Bring a pillow or blanket to make yourself comfortable. Spend the night with us.

We will be streaming the entire performance online so you can enjoy it even if you can't be with us here in Minneapolis. Direct your browsers to dronenotdrones.com to watch the webstream, get an up to the minute schedule, or listen to recordings of our previous drones.

We may feel powerless to stop the military industrial complex from causing "collateral damages" and spreading war. But we can spread peace if we drone on and on about it...
