A few months ago we posted about our friends in the Burmese band Side Effect, and how they needed help raising funds to record a record. Many of you donated to their cause and we thank you so much for your generosity. Unfortunately due to US sanctions with Myanmar the account the band created with Indigogo.com was frozen and all funds that were donated were returned. You can read all about this in several articles posted around the web including The Wall Street Journal, The Telegraph, and The Myanmar Times.
Side Effect still needs your help! To get more information on how you can recommit your funds email Side.Effect.Indie@gmail.com
