Thursday To-Do: Drum Corps International

Posted By on Wed, Jul 25, 2012 at 10:46 AM

DRUM CORPS INTERNATIONAL
7 p.m. War Memorial Stadium. $25.

In terms of staggering live productions, Drum Corps International will be hard to top. DCI bills itself as "marching music's major league," and after more than three decades of showcasing insanely complicated performances and ridiculously talented dancers and musicians, that seems like an indisputable claim.

If you need evidence of the awesomeness of these upper echelon band geeks, I suggest a quick YouTube search for "DCI highlights."

This show includes performances from The Cadets of Allentown, Pa.; The Cavaliers of Rosemont, Ill.; Bluecoats of Canton, Ohio; Blue Knights of Denver, Colo.; Glassmen of Toledo, Ohio; Academy of Tempe, Ariz.; Pacific Crest of Diamond Bar, Calif.; Crossmen of San Antonio; Cascades of Seattle; and Pioneer of Milwaukee, Wis.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
