Tomorrow there is a drum corps show in Eden Prairie (fancy suburb) and I’ll be going. It’s too close not to go.
Also, it will be a good chance to see good ol’ Minnesota Brass in action in their brand new uniforms!! (And color guard camel toe!!!)
The lineup is actually pretty decent for a smaller show. 3 of the top 10 corps will be there (blue devils, bluecoats, boston crusaders) as well as a fun smaller corps (Jersey surf). And of course Minnesota Brass is there, performing last, no less!
I’m most excited to see the Bluecoats. Their show is entitled “Tilt!” And they’ve actually reformatted the football field on about a 10 degree angle and they do lots of fun tilt theme movements.
The Blue Devils? Meh. Sure they’ve won 15 times– but I hate their shows. They litter the field with props and then don’t march. But they call it “esoteric” and the judges jizz on it. This year their show is called “Fellini-esque”. I call it autofellatio-esque.
However, this will be my one chance to see live drum corps this year, so in taking it. I was going to go to DCI Minnesota, but it was kicked out of town by the All Star Baseball Game.
Who gives a fuck about the All Star game??
Anyway, I’m really looking forward to it. I just hope it doesn’t get rained out.
