Boat Burning: Music for 100 Guitars

January 7, 2018 at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Not many performance troupes include Hungary’s former ambassador to the US and a drummer from GWAR, but anything’s possible in the local experimental group Boat Burning’s largest-ever version of its annual collaboration. One hundred guitarists—and several drummers—gather in locations around the club, taking cues from a conductor in the center as audience members roam the room. Don’t expect it to sound like break time at the Guitar Center, though—participants tune each string to the same note, conjuring overtones and harmonics no composer could anticipate.
