On September 10 on a rooftop in New York City, Austin’s The Rocketboys performed a special version of their song “Time Is A Devil” for us. The video got an exclusive premiere on Alternative Press last week, and we’re excited to be able to bring that video to you today.
The Rocketboys have been insane supporters of ours – their current tour with Bearcat is named Invisible Children Tour, and they’re selling limited screen print posters with the proceeds going to our programs. Cheers for that, bands.
Watch the video below then go to the Alternative Press website to read a piece written by drummer Justin Wiseman about his discovery of Invisible Children and his travels to Uganda. He discusses the band’s decision to begin speaking out for causes, saying, “We agreed that there are too many people, ideas, and organizations in the world that are intrinsically “good,” so we freed ourselves to be able to support those things through our music.”

Special thanks to Dustin Reid for his work on the video. Watch his other work [HERE].
