Boombox Parade Party!
Cool!.. A what?
That’s the reaction I usually get when trying to explain this street performance to people.
The best way I can answer this question is with a couple of questions. Check ’em out after the jump.
Have you ever heard a boombox bumping down the street?
Have you ever heard a fleet of boomboxes coming at you in full force bumping the same song in perfect sync!?
Well come on down to the arena distrct and see how it’s done. “Strait Bustyle!” Heck, if you’ve got a boombox be in the parade! If you ain’t got no boombox join us anyway we’ll have one ready for you! It’s 2010 ya’ll! Let’s do something cool, lo-fi, hi-tech and mad fun! I know times is bad but they ain’t gotta be sad. When times are hard, go harder, be inspired, live unrestricted! Oh, and it’s not just a Boombox Parade Party! It’s also a documentary!
