Kemman, Blackmath, Jonestown Choir 

When: Fri., Jan. 2, 7 p.m. 2009
Price: $8, $5 in advance
Talk about below the radar: Kemman, a local instrumental trio made up of former members of more commercial bands (relatively speaking) like Hot Stove Jimmy, Rules of Attraction, and Cougars, has been puttering about for nearly 15 years, obviously just for the love of it. This past May they finally got around to a sort-of proper recording—a five-track self-released EP called The Long Rocker, whose slightly rambling and solipsistic prog-metal chuggery nevertheless packs a visceral punch. This week they’re embarking on a flurry of activity (relatively speaking), with two shows in four days. It should be interesting to hear what this music sounds like bouncing off actual human bodies. Blackmath opens; see also Monday.—Monica Kendrick
