100 Days of Local Music – Day 65
Magnetic Ghost – Landfill
For the fourth 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.
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.
The entire performance will be streamed online. Direct your browsers to dronenotdrones.com to watch the webstream, get an up to the minute schedule, or listen to recordings of previous drones.

Flavor Crystals are a four piece space rock based in Minneapolis, MN. Since releasing their debut album On Plastic (mpls ltd 2005), Flavor Crystals have continued to create engagingly floaty psych rock. Their music evokes 60s psychedelia, 70s kraut/prog, 80s kiwi, and 90s shoegaze/indie in equal measures, while always retaining their distinct, wobbly vibe. Their second album was recorded with Kramer (Bongwater, Galaxie 500, Low) and released asAmbergris (mpls ltd 2007, Second Shimmy/Cargo 2008).
