In November 2009 Kenny Laubbaucher of Invisible Children reached out to Chryde regarding an idea for a documentary film project set in Uganda. The idea was to facilitate a cultural exchange of sorts, pulling together a few bands and traveling with them to Gulu. Little over a year later we are on our way to making this film a reality. Together, and with the help of many friends and supporters, earlier this year we managed to raise initial funding via a Kickstarter campaign. Several months later we were awarded as recipients of the Lincoln Fellowship Grant, an incredible honor and additional financial support, getting us even closer to production. And this October, in an effort to further promote the project and to secure the remaining funds needed, La Blogotheque and Invisible Children teamed up with the CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival. The resulting showcase, featuring Yellow Ostrich, Peter & Wolf’s Traffique and Doug Shaw’s High Life, was outstanding. Yellow Ostrich, with their young faces and fresh sounds, kicked off what we all quickly realized was going to be an incredible show. Just after we think we understand what these two guys are all about, a few more voices offer back-up support and a saxophone throws us for a rather spectacular loop.

Red and Traffique, rather appropriately dubbed “Gender Infinity” for the night, step into the spot lights and create a whole new ambiance of weird/beautiful. What was calmed and settled by Yellow Ostrich is now turned upside down and inside out via Red’s sounds and movements. We stare in amazement at the group and at each other, silently agreeing this is one great show. Red finishes up and Doug Shaw takes the stage. We drag a couch from the back of the room and people take a seat; others gather on the floor nearby. Doug turns amoreless
