Boredoms 2008 America Tour


Japan's legendary underground group Boredoms are returning to the U.S. in 2008 for a rare and very special series of dates this Spring. More relevant now than ever, Boredoms have recently been heralded for their 77 BOADRUM event (read the JamBase review here) in 2007 in New York City, where band leader Eye directed a phalanx of 77 drummers playing in unison. VICE Records also reissued their seminal Super Roots series in 2007, prompting SPIN Magazine to call their body of work "the freakiest recordings ever issued."

Tour dates below, several of which to be performed "in the round." "The Boredoms led a 77-drummer army in a Brooklyn park and performed one of the decade's most mesmerizing and blissful concerts." - XLR8R

"The Boredoms have a deserved reputation as a dogged and inspired cult band." - THE NEW YORKER

The boredoms are the worst band ever. Noise without any regard to structure. Worst band I have ever seen live by far. It is a headache manifested into music.
