Boris

Boris (ボリス Borisu) is a Japanese experimental rock band that combines different music genres including drone metal, sludge metal, noise rock, psychedelic rock, ambient and pop. Currently, the band's personnel consists of drummer-vocalist Atsuo, bassist-guitarist-vocalist Takeshi, and guitarist-vocalist Wata.

Boris takes its name from a song on the Melvins' Bullhead, and released its first album, Absolutego, on the group's own label, Fangs Anal Satan, in 1996. Since then, they have released 17 studio albums, including Pink, Heavy Rocks and Akuma No Uta, a number of EPs, 7" singles, and full-length collaborative recordings, on various record labels around the world.

      If you still want to see them, I can email you my ticket so that you can go. I have decided not to go due to work.

    Whoa, just went to buy my tickets, and: Boris is playing 2 nights - Tuesday and Wednesday.

    On Tuesday, they are playing a bunch of "all-time classics". Tuesday is sold out.

    On Wednesday (the day/date of this Meetup), they are playing the entire album Flood (which I have never heard!), and tickets are AVAILABLE - NOT sold out. :D

    So get your tickets ASAP, folks! :)

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
