Back in December when Gimme Noise last talked with Luke Heiken, the man behind Drone Not Drones, he mentioned that plans were in the works for a live 28-hour Drone-In performance at the Cedar Cultural Center.

Now that intriguing, one-of-a-kind show is beginning to take shape, as the Cedar just announced that the Drone Not Drones performance is set to take place on February 7 and 8. A long list of talented Minnesota music luminaries set to take part in the day-long drone fest has been revealed, with the groundbreaking performance serving as a benefit concert for Doctors Without Borders.
