Via the Spawn, we have what is apparently a moment from a recent Drum Corps International competition (think marching band on steroids):
Unfortunately, they later attempted to form a tesseract and the trumpet section disappeared into the inaccessible Plateau of Leng. We’re hoping the Gormogons take them on as heralds, or maybe Tcho-tcho chow.
Even if invited to go show off in North Korea, I think it’s not prudent to go.
Love it! We’ll keep an eye out for them here at the Castle. Now i just have to go determine whose eye it’ll be.
Re. DCI: In the summer of 1997 I attended a DCI competition in Columbia SC (well, specifically Irmo, but who, outside of SC, knows where that is). The winning band (and they later went on to win the 1997 “World” DCI championship) was the Blue Devils of Concord, CA performing a program called “As Time Goes By.” The highlight of the program was their performance of “A Night in Tunisia,” in the top ten most exciting musical performances I’ve ever seen in person. SC native Dizzy would have been proud. After the show I found out that the Blue Devils were using Mondoville High School as their base camp for two days so I was able to go out to the high school and watch them run through the program two more times the next day. Here’s the Youtube link to that performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvwW52xD0Ss
