Drone Not Drones Buzzes Cedar
February 12, 2014
An overnight musical marathon, protesting drone warfare, took place on the West Bank this past weekend. The effort was inspired by a comment last summer from Alan Sparhawk of the Duluth indie trio Low after his band filled an entire 27-minute set with one song. “Drone, not drones,” was Sparhawk's explanation.
The Drone Not Drones benefit raised money for Doctors Without Borders and gave musicians a chance to voice their opposition to the Obama Administration's use of unmanned aircraft to kill terrorism suspects in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
