Artscape/Exotic Hypnotic: Shaun Flynn

Shaun Flynn @ Artscape/Exotic Hypnotic, Langsdale Auditorium, July 22, 2007, Baltimore, MD

This solo set for drum kit left me with a lot of questions. Such as: how can it possibly take 40 minutes to set up a drum kit? How many times can a tom-tom fall over on one broken leg before one does something other than extend the bad leg and set it up for another fall seconds later? How can a "drummer" set up a kit as if they have no idea how it goes together? What is that gas can for? Should we have the fire department on stand by? Is there any kind of cohesive idea buried under this "solo?"

By the end of this set I was no longer interested in answering these questions.
