Boadrum777 (more here)
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...

I am against downloading stuff for free, but I will make an exception for this one. Vice/Jelly will not get a penny of my money.

Another dumb hipster comment 10:31am.

Sorry your hipster emo ears can't handle Boredoms and please stop with your hummus comment. It's really worse than What time is Daft Punk going on deal years ago. It's not funny and please come up with a better quote.

Lastly, please go listen to your MGMT, Vampire Weekend, Miike Snow, Dan Deacon, and other garbage bands and keep thinking they'll be around in 5 years.

For all Boredoms fans, anyone know if this is the same film that was shown when Japanese Boa Drum CD/DVD got released???

Yea I got Japanese CD/DVD too but that film wasn't 77 minutes long....but when I saw it in the theater when this thing came out in NYC, they showed the whole show so I'm hoping that it'll be full show and not shorter version.

Maybe we'll get whole 77 minutes but I doubt it.....

this was the best show i've seen in nyc in the last 10 years and i've seen some pretty fantastic shows. i understand why those who didn't get in would be cranky.

MILES DAVIS WOULD KICK ALL YO BEHINDS

waiting for them to make an album that addresses how much it sucks to be rich, white, and college educated. with a whiny lead singer. and a charmingly low budget animated video.

i wonder if the editor bothered to contact these "unknown" youtube cameramen, which is easy to do on youtube, before pilfering for self-profit.

Are some of you, years later, still bitter that you did not get into this show. I can understand. This was truly one of those special remember all your life shows. Not like most of the shows you over exaggerating idiots rant about every week. And no, the ones done the following years were not even close.

What is with the Jelly nyc fuckup comments though? I got there right as they were letting people in, saw the insane line, cut right up to the front and had an amazing time. I thought the event inside was well done by Jelly.

Maybe some of you bitter losers can go see the film and then tell people you were actually there..

I guess all that is left to say is suck my dick, go fuck your mother and

BOOM.

How much spam will I get from this event? Vice/Jelly keep selling the RSVP list. Even Thrill Jockey is now sending spam.

Posted by Anonymous | September 4, 2010 12:32 PM

More spam from Vice right now about their new TV show on MTV. The spam keeps coming!
