Concerned About Documenting Canadian Music History? Here’s How You Can Help.

God bless Tyler Elynuik, a graduate of the University of Regina Film School, a guy who believes that Canada needs to do a better job when it comes to documenting our music history, specifically the explosion of cool new stuff we saw in the 1990s.

His goal is to create a feature-length film called Rave & Drool which will chronicle that decade, one in which Canadian rock really came of age not just domestically but internationally. So far, Tyler has interviewed Our Lady Peace, Finger Eleven, Crash Test Dummies and the Tea Party with more (hopefully) to come.

The problem, of course, is this kind of project is expensive. Tyler needs some dosh to finish the film. This is where you can help via an Indiegogo campaign.

He’s not asking for much–$6,700 will be enough to get things done at this point–so every little bit helps. Can you chip in?
