DRONE NOT DRONES: The 7th Annual 28-hour Drone

January 31 @ 7:00 pm - February 1 @ 11:00 pm

$20 – $30

Held every winter in Minneapolis DRONE NOT DRONES is part benefit concert, part art project, part community event. Now for the seventh year in a row, more than sixty acts will rotate on and off the stage to create a single uninterrupted 28-hour drone to protest the extrajudicial and immoral drone program and raise money for the victims of the United States military-industrial complex.

The experts at Wikipedia say “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/blanket to make yourself comfortable. Spend the night with us.

We will be airing the entire performance on KFAI and streaming 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, listen to recordings of our previous drones, and donate directly to Doctors Without Borders.

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

Stay tuned for a lineup announcement later in November! Until then, you can purchase the freshly unveiled recording from last year’s program here (all proceeds are donated to Doctors Without Borders).
