Show Review of Packtucket, RI 1/29/13 at the Met


RIBS from Boston finished off the night with their post-punk/industrial sound that was shrieking and extremely dark, if you like Joy Division, Nine Inch Nails and TV On The Radio along with a soulful tinge then these guys are your cup of tea. A performance featuring “Kiss”, “Even”, “Gateway Drug”, a cover of Hole’s “Celebrity Skin”, “Brains”, “Alarms” and “Destructo” rocked the stage and was simply magnificent. RIBS have an EP out called Russian Blood that’s fantastic, some of the best music from Boston you’ll ever hear. Another wonderful night of live music at the best music venue in Pawtucket, log on to themetri.com for more info on shows.
