88 Boadrum was a duo of free concerts following 2007's 77 Boadrum, hosted by Japanese noise rock band Boredoms on August 8, 2008 (i.e. 08/08/08). The concerts took place at the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles, California and the Williamsburg waterfront in Brooklyn, New York and featured a new 88-minute composition.

Each concert began at 8:08 PM local time and featured 88 drummers selected by Boredoms and Hisham Bharoocha, the concert's director. Boredoms themselves appeared in Los Angeles, with Gang Gang Dance conducting the Brooklyn concert.[1]
