Endtroducing the Minnetonka High Percussion Ensemble.

Damn this is cool. Brian Udelhofen, a teacher at a Minneapolis high school arranged and then taught his after-school percussion group to play two songs off of DJ Shadow's Endtroducing ("Building Steam with a Grain of Salt" and "Changeling"). The kids had to spend an unbelievable amount of time rehearsing because it's perfect - with live drums that sound like drum loop edits and everything. Someone should give this teacher a raise or a grant or something.
