If you've read our interview with filmmaker Ari Gold about his terrific, quirky little masterpiece The Adventures of Power, you know that despite all logic, there may indeed be a future for you in air drumming. Well, how would you like to put those skills to the test for reals -- and help charity while you're at it?
This from Ari:
One thing Ari forgot to mention is that it's FREE to enter! So whether you play for real or not, get thee to AirDrumBattle.com and get in on this crazinesss! -- Jim C.
Hi there Jim,
I just wanted to give you a heads-up about my online Air Drum Battle which Styx, Ween, Breaking Benjamin (and Rush, and Metallica as air-drummers) are involved in. We're giving away $3,000 drums, and drum-lessons, and movie costumes, and it's going to be hilarious - just getting going, and anyone can enter. Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers was the first entry. It runs thru May 18.
I'd love to call-in and tell the world about it with ya - let me know if you're interested in hearing more - or send fans and freaks to join AirDrumBattle.com!
All the best,
PS: the Power Saves The Music charity auction raised enough money to rebuild a whole music school. We're doing another round of that in May.
