Boredoms Tour

In April, XLR8R and Onitsuka Tiger sponsored Boredoms’ U.S. tour, which made stops in San Diego, L.A., and San Francisco before heading east for New York. The Japanese noise demigods, who signed to Chicago’s Thrill Jockey earlier this year, performed all shows “in the round,” affording the audience better views of their immensely complex music-making apparatuses, and further pushing the boundaries of the way rock shows are experienced. “I think of the band itself as a type of playback device, something like a regenerating circuit,” lead Boredom Yamantaka Eye explained to The Washington Post. Look for Super Roots 9, the group’s latest, out now on Thrill Jockey.Ken Taylor
