It's been 13 years since the Japanese band Boredoms hit Seattle. Back then, they were a spastic noise act deconstructing punk rock by way of John Zorn. They've since transformed into sun-worshipping futurist hippies alternately known as V∞redoms. Recent works, such as the 77-drummer performance piece BOADRUM and a new live recording, tip their precarious balance of percussive jams and space noise further into the dangerous drum-circle hole. Still, Boredoms are a comet that passes only so many times in one's life. You can't afford to miss it. (Neumo's, 925 E Pike St, 709-9467. 8 pm, $18, 21+.)
