Drummers receive a lot of flak. Wild and tumultuous, bands go through drummers as a Lothario does women. They are compared to animals and stereotyped as stupid. Oh, come great 88BOADRUM, asking us to fall in love with drummers again! Coupled with an electronic composition, singer, guitarist and bassist, 88 drummers thumped into the night in carefully plotted waves of thunder. But the most thrilling moments were when they pounded away in unison, creating a spiritual, invigorating force comparable only to the primitivism of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring.
