Editors' pick

Cherry Blossom Boombox Walk


Editorial Review

A handful of local musicians will be getting their avant-garde on Saturday afternoon to celebrate cherry blossom season with the Cherry Blossom Boombox Walk. Local electro-rock duo Bluebrain enlisted Geologist of Animal Collective, Chad Clark of Beauty Pill, Sean Peoples of Sockets Records, electronic producer Outputmessage and DJ du jour Will Eastman to create a site-specific work, but you can participate, too. Bring a boombox - you know, that thing Will Smith held over his head in the credits of "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" - and you'll get a cassette recording of their composition. Everybody hits play around the same time, and some sort of wonderful cacophony will commence.
