It’s eerie to consider that the kids who listen to bands like Yeasayer and the Polyphonic Spree could be fighting guerrilla battles instead had they been born in a war-ravaged, underdeveloped country. French documentary filmmakers La Blogotheque and the humanitarian group Invisible Children will open fans to that reality by filming these bands in Uganda later this year. The film will depict band members being exposed to the war’s devastation and putting on spontaneous acoustic shows. Organizers have raised about $6,000 of the $20,000 they need to fund the trip via Kickstarter.
The trailer mentions three bands making the trip … will there be a third?
