After seeing 88BoaDrum a few nights ago, it's necessary for my soul.

Me and my friend were both in awe at how godlike Eye was the entire time. It was almost literally a religious experience.

^^^I am so envious that you got to see that! :)

See? Experience.

Both times I've seen Boredoms in the past 2 years, Eye literally holds your attention like no other performer I've ever seen. Did he use his massive guitar tower in LA?

that's how it was when i saw him.

Yeah he did. He conducted with a huge staff sometimes that he used to hit it. Other times he would wave his hand up and down to control the intensity of the drummers. There was one part where all the drummers were just playing a roll on the crash/ride cymbals, and he directed how hard they played with his hand. It sounded exactly like the ocean.

One of the most upsetting moments of my summer last year was getting turned down from the 77 drummer Boadrum last year after waiting on line for 4 hours. I was ready to kill someone. Sounds like this years was excellent though, you're very lucky.

The line was insane. I had to park illegally (was relieved not to get a ticket) and when the announcer started we were still a good half-block from the entrance, and it kept going behind us beyond sight. They stopped checking bags or whatever they were doing and just took tickets as fast as they could and we got there right as it started.

We managed to get right up to the front, though. The only people in front of us were maybe two rows of people sitting down on blankets. And we were right by Zach Hill, the 88th and probably most skilled non-Boredoms drummer there.

One of the drummers (a cute girl) even made eye contact with me throughout the set. Or I was standing next to someone she knew. Either way, that's how close we were.

drrrtyboots 08.12.2008 09:55 PM

I would have loved to see Zach Hill play and even more, Sara Lund from Unwound.
