HERE COMES THE FLOOD
For more than two decades, Tokyo’s experimental music trio Boris has dabbled in drone-metal, hard rock, shoegaze, and pop, all at the whim of Takeshi Ohtani’s double-necked guitar. And at their two-night New York residency, “From the Past, the Present and Through to the Future,” they can demonstrate their range. Tonight consists of “all-time classics,” and judging from recent set lists could range from the fuzzy alt-rock of “Farewell” from their celebrated 2005 release Pink, to 2008’s bulldozing, Hendrix-style guitar-torture of “Statement.” Tuesday, though, highlights their experimental side, as they play their celebrated ambient 70-minute single “Flood,” as well as a drone and noise set. With Young Widows and Ornament on Monday, and Stephen Brodsky and Amen Dunes on Tuesday.
