more details on the Boredoms 77 Drum (‘Boadrum’)

77 Drums

More details on the Boredoms 77 Drummer thing happening in Brooklyn Bridge Park on 7/7/7 have emerged. According to The Daily Swarm,

The gates will open at 4:00 PM, and the show features performances by First Nation and Soft Circle and DJ sets from Gang Gang Dance before the 77-minute 77BOADRUM performance takes place just before sunset. Admission is free, but an RSVP is required. Full details, directions, and RSVP information will be available at soon.

The performance’s 77 full 5-piece, 3 cymbal drum kits will be arranged in a circular pattern, spiraling out from the center like a coiled snake, where the Boredoms’ own drum kits and Eye’s electronic instruments will sit atop a raised platform. Joining the Boredoms will be 74 additional drummers, 10 of whom will serve as drum leaders and cue the rest.

The volunteer army of drummers represent many of the best players in New York City’s avant/experimental underground and were selected by the event’s music director Hisham Bharoocha. They come from a diverse group of bands and musicians who have drawn influence and inspiration from the Boredoms throughout the group’s 20-year career, including Hugo Burnham of Gang of Four, Tim Dewit and Lizzi Bougatsos of Gang Gang Dance, Andrew W.K., David Grubbs, Hart Mingus of Negative Approach, Matthias Schulz of Holy Fuck, and members of Aa, Crash Worship, God Is My Co-Pilot, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Oneida, Excepter, Antietam, Dymaxion, Panthers, and many others. The full line-up of drummers will be finalized this week.
