Boredoms' 88Boadrum in L.A. & Brooklyn on 8/8/08

From Brooklyn Vegan:

"Boredoms' 88Boadrum in L.A. & Brooklyn on 8/8/08, (thx Nike)
77Boadrum in Brooklyn - 7/7/07 (more)

...Japanese psych-noise-crazy-genius-types Boredoms will once again bring the clattering of oh-so-many drums to the States this summer, in a bi-coastal sequel to last year's wildly successful 77BoaDrum event. This time out, they're calling it 88BoaDrum, and performances of the brand new 88-minute composition from Boredoms leader Eye will take place August 8 (8/8/08, you see) in both Los Angeles and Brooklyn, New York.

The Los Angeles event will take place beginning at 8:08 PM PST at the city's famed La Brea Tar Pits, and will feature 88 drummers selected by both the Boredoms and 88Boadrum artistic director Hisham Bharoocha of Soft Circle. The New York event, conducted on behalf of the Boredoms by Brooklyn's own Gang Gang Dance, goes down at 8:08 PM EST at the Williamsburg waterfront.
Both BoaDrums will be free and open to the public, but tickets will be required for entry. They'll be available starting Friday, July 18 at brownpapertickets.com, at L.A.'s Amoeba Records and the L.A. County Museum of Art, or at New York's Other Music and Sound Fix Records. Only one ticket will be available per person."

celestronica & love affair (july 2008 mix)

I'm sure you've been there... inviting someone over to "listen to records" (or watch movies) when really your motives lean towards that of a saliva exchange.

(((You sneaky bugger.)))

The problem with this, is if you're really into the make-out session is that your playlist runs dead (ipod). Your random/shuffle selection picks something downright killer (mood killer, that is), or if you're so suave as to be handling vinyl - you have to switch sides or else you're cursed with the repeated white noise of the end of Side A.

Hopefully in most of your kissing parties, you've reached a point to where you can care less if Suicidal Tendencies are there in the flesh, playing in your living room to you and your make out buddy stripping down to your skivvies to exchange DNA. But there are times when, either the mood hasn't reached its peak, you just don't take the meeting of the mouths too seriously, you've had too many laugh inducing substances, or the song that comes up is just holds too much irony for you to stifle your memory.

Whether I laughed out loud, ran off altogether, or politely made a mental note - this month's mix holds those songs that were too memorable to erase, for one reason or another...
