Get in Line Early for Tomorrow's Performance by The Boredoms

I just received this email:
Thank you for RSVPing to tomorrow's BOREDOMS 77BOADRUM performance.
Your name has been added to the RSVP list for the event. HOWEVER, the RSVP response has been overwhelming - which means that we CANNOT guarantee admission, except on a first come-first served basis. We cannot overstate this: Not everyone will be allowed in.

The line will begin at the corner of New Dock and Water Street at 2:30pm. Please do NOT arrive before 2:30pm as the police stationed there will ask you to move along. Doors will open at 4pm. After we hit capacity, we can only admit you on a one-in, one-out basis.



Use of public transport is highly recommended. The closest MTA stops are York Street on the F train, Clark Street on the 2 and the 3 trains, and Cadman Plaza on the A and C trains.

Starting at 4pm will be DJ sets by Gang Gang Dance, and live performances from Soft Circle and First Nation. 77BOADRUM will begin at 7pm and end with the sunset.

BOREDOMS request that you leave your cameras at home for 77BOADRUM. In their words, "We want people to remember in their mind, not in their camera." It's looking like it will be beautiful day so remember to bring sunscreen.


Since you'll be in the neighborhood, it's worth mentioning that Nike and PowerHouse have a show opening the same day as 77BOADRUM, just around the corner. RE-RUN: A contemporary installation inspired by the renegade spirit and energy of running in the 1970s, including photographs, graphics and a series of specially-commission artworks.
The PowerHouse Arena
37 Main Street, DUMBO, Brooklyn
Exhibition runs July 7 - 22, 2007, open to the public 12pm - 7pm daily.
