Given their prolific nature, it’s pretty much a given that Boris spends just as much time on the road as they do in the studio. I mean, the Japanese everything-rockers released two completely different albums — Attention Please and a second record under the name Heavy Rocks — this past April. It’s safe to say they will mostly stick to tracks from those records, though expect a few Pink and Smile cuts to work their way onto the set list, too. And in case you’re wondering if you should check out Boris live, it’s my personal opinion that you should not hesitate to cop tickets if they’re coming to your city. They put on one hell of a show and a loud one at that, so make sure to buy some ear plugs, too.
