Wata of Boris delivers the powerfully heavy guitar tone as the band play the Fillmore in San Francisco.

Currently out on the road playing their seminal album, Pink, in its entirety, avant garde Japanese trio Boris still have that one of a kind sound that have made them a cult favorite for almost twenty years.

Opening their set with “Blackout,” the band blended the fuzzy guitar, deep low end bass, and crashing drums, making the songs from Pink sound even heavier than when they were recorded.

Highlights of their set included “Woman on the Screen,” “Nothing Special,” and “Just Abandoned Myself,” but the pinnacle of the evening was the encore of “Ouroboros is Broken,” where opening band Earth joined them on stage.
