beautiful noise

I wish I was cool enough to have known about the Boredoms performance last month at the La Brea Tar Pits.  I remember someone mentioning that 88 drummers were going to play at LACMA to commemorate the date 8-08-88, but they sadly didn’t mention it had anything to do with the Boredoms, so in my mind I pictured some musically lame Guitar Center-esque event where they try to set some record by assembling the most drummers possible like this thing.  But after reading this review in LA Record and watching the video below, it seems I missed out on an amazing experience.  I was playing a gig at the time, so I wouldn’t have been able to go anyways, but I bet it was so loud I could have heard it from my house a few miles away.

Don’t you wish you had a magic staff that could trigger the sound of the gods?  I don’t know what’s more awesome, a magic staff or two glowing balls. Actually even one ball is awesome.  Either way, it’s probably healthier (though not necessarily less awesome) on your ears than screaming into a feedbacking stack of Marshall amps (I love the polite applause and “arigato” at the end).
