“RIBS put on quite the show during Night #1 of the Boston Accents Funeral Party. Not only did they have a a ton of music and electronic gear hooked up, but they brought their own light show. There were so many cords and cables on the stage you’d think they had the Ark Of The Covenant up there.* They opened with Placebo’s “Pure Morning,” a sign of the indielectro rock that would mark their powerful set.”

Ryan’s Smashing Life: Great Scott Review 5/5/11

Monday, May 9th, 2011

“With a bizarre and unique system of neon strip-lights, that stretched far from the stage and pulsed with each drum beat, RlBS demonstrated tonight that for a band to have a chance to really blow up they must go beyond simply addictive music. These days you must, like the light show, project so powerfully that your success seems inevitable. RIBS started their tour like this, this evening at Great Scott, and from here they’ll go far.”

New Tour Kickoffs
Thursday 5/5/11 at Great Scott

This Thursday night in Boston you can see a band that tick all these boxes; a band that knows the difference between performing and merely playing their songs, musicians that really commit to every beat of the drum and pluck of the string, and songs with hooks you’ll be singing after the set is over. Since their incendiary (and insanely loud) headline set at the RSL four-year anniversary party a few months ago, RIBS have been busy plotting their next musical take-over. It comes in the form of an East coast tour, and, since we can say they are ours here in Boston before they are anyone else’s, where better to kick that off than at Great Scott.

RIBS are an unashamedly heavy band. In a sea of indie, folk and Americana, they play music that shakes through your ribcage (no pun intended). I’ve read of various more or less strange comparisons (Joy Division?!) – perhaps Deftones is the best parallel with the operatic scale of their semi-metal sound. Either way though, the buzz about his band is worthy, and you can give them a great tour send off this week if you find yourself in the right place at the right time. The rest of the dates on the East Coast spin, follow…

While the volcanic ash wreaked havoc on touring plans worldwide, the audience at Boston’s Great Scott got all they hoped for as RIBS took matters into their own hands last Thursday night…
