The indie rock band from  Myanmar called “Side Effect” showcased on the South by Southwest music and film festival in Austin, Texas this month. This was a first for the band which previously faced censored lyrics and restrictions on live gigs under the former military junta. The fourpiece band barely made it there after raising money through cloud funding. As the band  leader stated, “Money is the major  problem because we don’t have any money”. Side Effect cites the late Kurt Cobain of Nirvana as their inspiration and sing their songs in both English and Burmese.  For more information on South by Southwest go to:  www.sxsw.com
