Rubblebucket: They're probably the best free show you'll see this summer

You're probably going to be a fan of this Brooklyn dance rock act.

Posted By on Thu, Jun 10, 2010 at 5:31 PM

While putting together some advance coverage for the Bite of Bend yesterday, I finally spent some time listening to Rubblebucket, a Brooklyn/Vermont-based 10-piece genre-smashing, dance-rock band that is playing for free at the annual food festival on Saturday, June 26.

Rubblebucket, which combines West African rhythms with cutting-edge indie rock poppiness (and plenty of horns), has been gaining attention as of late, landing them on national festival lineups including High Sierra and the All Good Festival. If you need a comparison, the best I can do is Architecture in Helsinki (or maybe a more bass-heavy Vampire Weekend...maybe).

The video below gives you a taste of their live show, but hit their website and get a free download of "Came Out of a Lady. " Check the left side of the page for the download link.

But one this is for sure -- start listening to this band. Immediately.

    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock. From their 2010 album This Cage Has No Bottom, to the new music they are creating (and are sure to share with us tonight), most people just can’t get enough of their unique folk/rock/pop/dance goodness.
