Musicians from across genres and across Minnesota come together to create a 28-hour drone of unified sound and to raise money for Doctors Without Borders. Come by before work, after work, or both. Bring a pillow or blanket to make yourself comfortable. Spend the night with us. Be part of a unique experience and support a worthy and just cause. Check leading up to the event for more information on who is playing when, where to find meals nearby, and other updates. Wikipedia says "Drone music is a minimalist musical style that emphasizes the use of sustained or repeated sounds, notes, or tone-clusters – called drones. It is typically characterized by lengthy audio programs with relatively slight harmonic variations throughout each piece compared to other musics." We don't have the right words to stop "targeted killings" or "collateral damages" or "illegal assassinations." All we can do is drone on and on about it...
