End Hits = Pro Drum Circle

After last night's excellent Au performance at Holocene, the band left various percussion instruments at the front of the stage (they were originally used by their in-crowd choir) which led to an impromptu drum circle of sorts.

It was nice.

I know, I know, a change of heart when it comes to drum circles is an unforgivable sin and a slippery slope to greater atrocities (Hey Broseph, know what this music needs? Some sweet digeriedo action!), but last night's, um, "jam session" seemed a bit more innocent, and less Burning Man, than you might think. In fact, it sort of added to the open-ended community aspect of Au's performance.

At least, that's what I am telling myself. If you catch me on Hawthorne this afternoon strumming my berimbau, you'll know what lead me down that path. Peace.
