Ketman are a band to behold. The tired phrase “explosive live show” has become a bit of a cliché, but it fits Ketman perfectly. If you can tear your eyes off their awesome girl drummer, Mora Precarious, who is one of the fastest and most powerful drummers I’ve ever seen, then Eric and Joseph will dazzle you with their execution of frantic, deliberate noise-rock. Together, they have one of the best live shows I’ve seen in or outside of Boston.
Don’t believe me? Check out some live footage of Ketman playing at Great Scott:

Aside from the live element, Ketman’s album “El Toro” was named #8 in the top ten albums of 2008 in the Boston Herald.
Catch them at The Milky Way on 01/18/08 to send them off on their West Coast tour of California (and on to Brazil in April!)
Also on the bill: Jamaica Plain representin‘ Thunderhole, a band that you will be hearing more about on this blog (and elsewhere). Think hip experimental-nintendo garage-art-rock.
and Brooklyn’s The Boo Jays, a dirgey noise grunge band.
9:00 pm, free show!
