    Re: opening the 606, as an old band geek (of course this was when the percussionists used bone sticks and mastodon-hide drumheads), I think two marching bands meeting in the middle is a fine idea. But it’s an important detail that the bands in question are Mucca Pazza and Bateria Quilombola. Should be fun! And loud!
