The Boredoms and Gang Gang Dance are heading up an ambitious musical project called 88 BoaDrum, an event going down in both New York and L.A. on August 8th, the now infamous date of 08.08.08. There's lots of eights here, in fact, so try to keep up.
On 08.08.08, 88 drummers will start at 8:08 PM for an 88 minute performance entitled 88BoaDrum. It's a follow-up to 77BoaDrum, which of course involved lots of drums and lots of sevens.
The Boredoms will host the L.A. side, in La Brea Tar Pits and Gang Gang Dance are hosting the New York side at the Williamsburg Waterfront. Both events will happen at 8:08 in their respective time zones, so there's no live coordination between the two events.
The L.A. contingent will play a piece created by the Boredoms and led by artistic driector Hisham Bharoocha (Soft Circle, Lightning Bolt, Black Dice). The New York side will also play the same piece, led by artistic director Ryan Sawyer (Tall Firs).
