We stumbled across this article about Detroit based band The High Strung over at boingboing.net about playing an unusual show at Guantanamo Bay as part of their ‘library tour’. With so much in the news about making Michigan ‘Gitmo North’ we found it particularly interesting. Check it out it’s a good read….
Detroit-based indie rockers The High Strung, whose penchant for playing live music in libraries was the subject of a This American Life feature, were invited to play a show at the Guantanamo Bay library this summer. They said yes. What followed is documented in a Vanity Fair article, written by the older brother of one of the bandmembers.
