No longer loading up on dozens of drummers, as they did for the last two years’ numerological calendar celebrations (on 7-07-07, 8-08-08), Japanese avant institution the Boredoms scale back to a mere 9 drummers for their annual celebration. Even with this smaller troupe, expect them to kick up a lot of noise as the skin beaters lay down a tribal call and Eye conducts and screams over it. Quite a spectacle, for sure.
