    I really wanted to go... I was stuck at the shop. The boys Schnipper and Scrappy went and said it was incredible.

    RAMP was playing in Central Park the same day but I can't imagine choosing that over this.

  • Spent about 90 minutes on the 2000+ hipster-person deep line, then broke out with the quickness.

    Guess I didn't miss much, though, because those clips =

    have you seen boredoms live the last few years? their whole set is basically one long song with no breaks. this was the same idea except 77minutes, so i don't think 2 minute video clips are representative of the whole performance.

    i know it may seen inconceivable that youtube couldn't translate something, but if you can wrap your mind around that you can trust me that it was completely epic

    I had to sub the "electronica" show at the radio station a couple weeks ago and since I havent clue about that stuff, I played the entire "Vision Creation New Sun" album straight through...the phone lines went haywire..all these electronica people asking "is this such and such? is it such and such? No? Who is this? The Boredoms???From Japan??Never heard of 'em" So many people are not familar but when they hear it they flip...

    So how did they practice for this or did that not even happen?

    I dont know..maybe it was the drumming equivilent of that game you played when you were a kid where you say something and whisper it to another person and by the time you get to the end it is a different phrase...perhaps since they were all in a spiral the first person in the center of the spiral followed Yoshimi and the next and the next until the last person was playing a completely different beat...

    probably didnt happen that way, but that might have been cool...


    Shit, I wish I could have gone...............

  • Their 'practice' consisted of running through the set about 2 hours before showtime....while everyone lined up outside the park. It sounded kinda meh to me.

    And for the record: I've been an on and off fan since back in the Chocolate Synthesizer/ Pop Tatari days. I think that Seadrum is an awesome record, too.

    This whole thing, however= hipsteroid collision. I think most of the people there were, as you say, [i]not familiar.

    My bad then. I don't really care about what the crowd was like, but from all reports (and these clips) I thought it sounded pretty dope.

    missing some shit like this because you don't want to be around hipsters is retarded. and i say that as one of the biggest misanthropes i know. and yeah there were a handful of people there that were not diehard boredoms fans, but people were definitely responding to the interpolation and referencing of older shit like super ??. and i'm not really mad at people diehard enough to line up at 1 in the afternoon because they think 77 drummers in the park on a nice day sounds tight. you sound mad you didn't get in. which is understandable, but come on.

    and as far as rehearsal, the leaders were getting groups together months in advance to rehearse the various movements. it was not "let's all get together and bash it out!" in the least. shit was well choreographed. not the best boredoms show i've ever seen, or even the second best, but still a singular experience and up there with any other live music i've ever seen.

    what is this?! i recognize guitar elements, but uh holy cow


    I believe people have been calling this a "guitar fence". Basically open guitar tunings that Eye played with drumsticks. They had a special assistant that would tune it periodically.

    By the way this show was epic, incredible, indescribable. It created such good feelings within me that I merely laugh at the idiot in this thread who didn't even attend the show and yet thinks he is in any position to speak on it.

  • 100% agree with this dude and why the fuck is my post in italics oh well

  • by the way eye played those guitar necks by hitting them with a fucking 10 FOOT TALL TRIDENT

    Blah blah blah blah small man talk blah blah.

    I believe what that is a bunch of homemade lapsteel guitars mounted on drum hardware. That's actually kinda cool. I do wish I had seen that.

    Judging by the bug-up-the-ass pseudo-hipper than thou reactions of the folks here who did attend and won't brook any criticism whatsoever, however, I am now absolutely sure I didn't miss a damn thing worth suffering such company for. 2000+ scene points for you!

    Do me a favor:turn out the lights in Williamsburg (or Bushwick) on your way back to Ohio, and get out of my city.

    I AGREE WITH SOLID STATE SHIT LOOKS TEPID AT BEST U HIPSTER DUMMIES.

  • noznoz 3,625 Posts
    I ONCE SAW SEVENTY EIGHT DRUMMERS AND NO HIPSTERS TOP THAT.

  • JLRJLR 3,835 Posts
    I TOO AGREE WITH SOLID STATE. I IMAGINE A LITTLE HIPSTER IN 2050 FINDING A CD-R OF THIS EVENT AND POSTING SOUNDCLIPS IN WAXIDERMY.

    I CAN SMELL THE DOO-DOO ON A STICKNESS OF IT ALL FROM ARGENTINA.

    dude you have absolutely no fucking idea what you're talking about but ok

    You should definitely go (back?) to Ohio though. I hear it's soothing.

    One thing that dude got wrong though is the lights. You need to turn ON the lights. It's way too dark in your apartment.
