Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Rubblebucket/Sunspots/Phunky Panda Monkeys

When: Fri., July 12, 8 p.m. 2013

If you’ve never been to a Rubblebucket show, please heed this advice: Go to a Rubblebucket show! Thankfully, the Brooklyn octet is in town tonight. Still plenty under-the-radar, Rubblebucket puts on some of the most energetic and fun shows touring these days. During a Cleveland show a while ago, a GIANT ROBOT FIGHT took over the crowd as the band threw down its fiery jazz-funk magic. They repeated the antics at last year’s Bonnaroo. Count on it: Tonight’s gonna be good. The band, fronted by the always-wonderful Kalmia Traver, dropped Oversaturated as an extended play in 2012. “Pain From Love” is the song you’ll want to check out ASAP. Then, work backwards to Omega La La and the self-titled debut. Rubblebucket has been fermenting in its own universe for years now and their commitment to left field is as genuine as ever. “Bikes” is a really great song from the first album; you’d do well to cue that up and pour yourself a tall bourbon pre-game style.
