Boredoms and Deerhunter at EMPAC

boredoms

They're a little different.

EMPAC has a show lined up next Friday that's, well, we're not sure exactly what to think. But we're pretty sure it's not going to be boring.

Japanese noise rock bank Boredoms will be doing their thing. And you really just have to listen/see it to understand what that is. EMPAC describes it as "omnivorous, free-ranging aural play." You're probably going to love it or hate it.

Also on the slate that night is "ambient punk" band Deerhunter, which when compared to Boredoms sounds downright prosaic. They'd be a good show all by themselves. Together it should be quite the evening.

Tickets are $15. The show starts September 11 at 8 pm in EMPAC's concert hall.

Yeah this show isn't a picture of a big crane you can just stare at all slack jawed and post pithy comments about.

It certainly is not an insightful post about buying vacuum cleaners or dog grooming.

And it definitely aint Kristy Gufstafson deep.

Boy I can't wait for Rilo Kiley and Michael Buble to come to town! Maybe I will be seen!

Jeez, AOA. You finally dare to make fun of something and you pick the Boredoms?

Just after I made a diatribe about how nothing good ever happens in this remote, cultureless province, and you tell me the Boredoms are coming.

Boredoms are one of the most amazing/important (not really even "interesting/different" anymore, btw) rock bands of the past 20 years - Deerhunter are some fresh kids from down south smoking weed and making amazing songs. What more does the Cap Region need? AOA! and fifteen bucks is crazy for a group this well known. Your blog rules but get with the program! This show is not even a wierdo EMPAC thing. Boredoms are about as mainstream as EMPAC gets. If you want "interesting/different", though, they're certainly servin that, too in big pills for the rest of the year.

Boredoms were amazing last night! Add to that FAUST playing at Proctor's on Sept. 30th, and suddenly this area is on the map. YES.
