Ketamines - Line By Line + Double Elevens

Full review to follow. Most downtown types treat The Junction like it's just over the edge of the world, but it's not so tough to get to. And at any rate, it was lively in local watering hole 3030, even if a lot of the crowd at this free event looked to be there for their local hangs more than going out of their way to check out the bands. I'd been meaning to investigate the spot out for a while, and it turned out to be far larger than anticipated, with a large stage at the back of a wide, rec-room feeling space.

The occasion was to mark the launch of Pinball Sessions site, with the membership-overlapping Zebrassieres and Ketamines headlining the night. The latter have gotten some attention both for their new album as well as through frontman Paul Lawton's extracurricular activities. Working through some gear troubles and staring out at that mostly-indifferent audience in the seating area beyond the crowd up front, the band generated some fun by bashing through a series of quick songs. Heading out on the road for the rest of the month, they should be fully rounded into form (and/or exhausted and disgusted with life) when they make their way back to play Hard Luck on June 29th.
