Boredoms, Webster Hall, NYC
- Man! that was sooooo awesome. lightening bolt sounded great and i
really should get some of their records... they played for about an
hour? maybe more. people were into it and i saw a lot of girls
nodding their heads to them which made me happy. it's so good to see
a band that just plays where they want to. i hear they've played on
the middle of the street before in Brooklyn?
anyways, Ey3 came out with the "orb" and did a great chant/dance
and actually incorporated it with the drummers later on. i can't
remember how many 'songs' they played but it was sooooo tight. just
incredible, ridiculous, and amazing. that disco song was tight! "yea-
yea-yeah, oh-yo!" they had this huge red tower of light that came on
and splashed us. Ey3 seemed to be having a great time and he did
jump around and throwing his body around now and then. for the first
encore i think they did song that started out with Ey3
chanting "suuuuuuuuuuuuuuun." i call it the "sun oh" song since that
was the lyric. i think that was the encore... anyways, then they
came out the second time for another encore (the crowd was really
making a lot of noise both times) and we did the "Acid!" "Polisu!"
for a good 10 minutes with drums! and there was one more song and he
said it was called something like "kuni?" i don't wear any earplugs
and he speaks so softly i really couldn't decifer... after words he
was so thankful saying "Arigato" and bowing. after the show i got
to speak to him and say how great the show was and got a pic taken
with him, again! oh, and i got the one shirt they had for sale and
later realized it said 'Maxi Single, 12"' on the top right... i
wonder if that means there is one coming out soon? i wonder why they
didn't make any official "Vooredoms" shirts....
- Yes, it was amazing wasn't it? I got to see them in both Chicago and Cleveland. Before the
Cleveland show I got to meet EYE and we spent a couple hours together at the local record
shops. He's a really cool guy and I hope to see him again when I'm in Japan. At the Cleveland
show they played Acid Police as well and the crowd even shouted out the intro for B for
Boredoms but EYE told them "sorry, but we don't have a bass guitar."
