Yeasayer have signed on to travel to Gulu, Uganda later this year, aiming to learn first hand the effects of the Ugandan civil war. They join the already-committed Polyphonic Spree. The trip is being organised by the charity Invisible Children, which is dedicated to improving the lives of these children who are forcibly recruited into the civil war. Whilst in Uganda the bands will learn about the war first hand, and perform live in various locations.
A documentary is set to be made by La Blogotheque, the site behind the 'Take Away Shows,' which puts bands in unusual locations, then films them. They've made a trailer for the project, which can be seen here (video below).
It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com.
I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed.
Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
