77 Boadrum Fun Time!

The beggining of the school year is hitting me hard! When I see people around and they ask me what I did this summer, before thinking about my internship, I think "Well, I went to 77 Boadrum." This concert was definitely life altering for me and probably everyone else there, and since the show has been over I've been obsessed with looking for pictures, videos, and recordings of the concert so I can relive it, at least a little bit. Now I would love to share my findings with you, my dear blog readers. If you were lucky enough to be at the show, I'm sure you will appreciate these things as much as I do, and if you weren't at the show, you can get a little taste of what it was like! Below is a recording of the show in its entirety:

Express Yourself LIVE

If you click on the little green music notes, 77 Boadrum should start playing immediately.

The people at Viva Radio posted some really great videos from the big event. The first one has interviews with a lot of the drummers, and some nice footage of the first few minutes of the show:



The second one is an interview with Eye from the Boredoms. Very educational!



The Viva Radio website also stocks the 77 Boadrum t-shirts, which I am very happy about, because there was no way in hell I was standing in those long t-shirt lines! There are also a bajillion pictures available to go through. And finally, here is a nice article written for Vice magazine by Kid Millions from Oneida (he was one of my favorite drummers to watch at this event) about his experience being a part of 77 Boadrum (or, I guess, Boadrum77.)

I've heard through the grape vine that next summer the Boredoms have an 88 drummers concert planned to be in Chicago. Now I know where my next summer vacation will have to be!
