Have you sold your Serta, gutted your bedroom, and turned it into an elaborate shrine to the magic of percussion by erecting an exact replica of Rush beatkeeper Neil Peart's 360-degree drum kit? Or do you prefer to bang on a beat-up trashcan?
Either way, go join Roofless Records' Percussion Conference tonight at the Churchill's Pub back patio. It's part of the International Noise Conference's first night and tom-tom fanatics of all kinds will be flocking to the spot, including the drummers for Torche, Beings, Heartstrings, Temple of Bon Matin, and Meat.
As the official literature puts it: "CALLING ALL DRUMMERS! Maximalist free-improv percussion session! All forms of percussion are welcome!"
Just don't call it a drum circle, you hippie.
Percussion Conference at the International Noise Conference 2011. Thursday, February 11. Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave., Miami. Meet at 11 p.m. with gear and the banging starts at 11 p.m. Call 305-757-1807
