"They accomplish what most rock bands only dream of."--TINY MIX TAPES
Japan's Boredoms set the scene for supercharged cosmic drone rock in the late 1980s with their iconoclastic sound, inspiring such bands as Nirvana and Sonic Youth and even taking center stage at Lollapalooza. Wielding metallic krautrock noise, freeform jazz blasts, frenzied neotribal rhythms, acid-drenched trance tones, and anything else they can mischievously stir into the mix, the Boredoms' hypnotic sonic uproar must be experienced live to be believed. This rare live show in the States promises to be a highlight of a Next @ Wex season that has already thrilled fans with the brash sonic experimentation of Wolf Eyes, Mogwai, Sunn O))), and Boris.
