More good shots here including a good look at the 'guitar fence' eYe was playing at a volume that is still incomprehensible
...striking all 7 at once with colored sticks-pink-blue-etc- (and a 5 foot silver trident!!) which I'm pretty sure was a means of orchestrating. Colored sticks to denote certain changes/actions.
I have NEVER heard anything like what I heard this past saturday.
It was like Steve Reich meets Terry Riley meets the Boredoms(with 77 terribly proficient drummers[doi!]) on uppers, downers, in-betweeners, and amplifiers on steroids to the tune of a gorgeous sun-drenched green grass summer day.
Everyone I have talked to who was there and everything I have read about it since (obsessively checking blogs and anything peripherally related) uses the same language to describe it>>perfect, incredible, best show ever, best day ever, best event ever, changed the way you feel about your city, changed the way you feel about music, changed the way you feel about those around you...and hokey as it seems it was all of that--and if you didn't think it was THE best (and you know it was) you were still blown away away away.
At the bottom of this page
there's a full list of the other drummers involved.
