Boredoms

After events in NYC on 9/9/9 and 8/8/8 with nine and 88 drummers respectively, the original Boadrum show in DUMBO on 7/7/7 with 77 drummers will be released on video:

On July 7th, 2007 at 7:07 PM, Japanese group Boredoms, orchestrated a performance by 77 drummers at the Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park in Brooklyn, NY. Nearly three years later, the experience is finally making its way to DVD. 77 Boa Drum is the official live performance documentary of the event, complete with behind the scenes rehearsal footage, interviews, and of course, lots of footage of the actual performance.

The momentous event was filmed by Jun Kawaguchi and his crew, web-TV sites like VBS TV, Viva-Radio, and several unknown You Tube cameramen. Kawaguchi, a big fan of Boredoms, had spent a decade chronicling the band’s live performances and the 77 Boa Drum concert was no different. After editing his footage together with live footage captured and posted on You Tube, the 89 minute documentary was born.

The DVD will see release in the US on Thrill Jockey Records on September 7th and come with a series of photo postcards not available in the Japanese edition.

The movie is being screened on Wednesday, September 1st @ IndieScreen (285 Kent Avenue) at 8 and 10PM. Dig on the trailer, cover art, as well as more YouTube videos (some of them which might be on the DVD) from that show, below…
