If you are like me you still remember the old days when PBS or ESPN broadcast the Drum Corps International Finals. The days of free broadcasts are LONG gone, but these days you can experience the music and the pagentry in a way fairly close to actually sitting in the stands at Lucas Oil Stadium without having to travel or pay through the nose for a ticket. On August 7th, 2014, in dozens of movie theaters across the country you can pay around $17 for a comfy, air conditioned seat and get to see the show close up from the dozens of cameras that they have pointed at the field. That, by the way, is an incredible feat in and of itself so if you don't know just how intense of an event this is to setup and choreograph from a technical perspective take a look at this behind the scenes audio/video clip from one of the previous years.
Even though being at a live performance is incredible I have to admit that I like the theater show a lot better than sitting in the stands on a hard bench and in the heat. Much more comfortable and yet I still get the energy of the crowd sitting around me. Last year my theater nearly sold out so if you are worried go over to Fathom Events and buy an advance ticket. If you have ever gone to one of these live theater broadcasts please feel free to leave a comment and let us all know what you thought of it!
Are you going?
