New Nothing series 
Boredoms: BOADRUM 9 

With Deerhunter 
Friday, September 11, 8:00 PM
$15 / $10 / $5

The Japanese noise-rock band Boredoms continue their tradition of free-ranging aural play with a performance whose centerpiece is a circle of nine drummers performing in-the-round in EMPAC's Concert Hall. Together they generate a densely-layered, body-shaking field of percussion that's at once propulsive and meditative. With Atlanta's "ambient punk" Deerhunter.
