This week we're throwing it back to Rubblebucket
's insanely enjoyable show at Stage 48 in Manhattan in honor of their show here in Brooklyn earlier this month. We recently caught them at Greenpoint's Warsaw and it simply reminded us why we love them so much.
Their spectacularly powerful front lady Annakalmia Traver crowd surfed after confetti and balloons were dropped into the crowd and at the end of the show, the entire band took their instruments and set up in the back corner of the room on the floor, creating an intense intimacy. Traver also took note of which fans' birthdays it was and had them join on stage to play tambourine - it was unlike any other show we've ever been to. To even call it a show wouldn't do it justice - it was a party. It was a party filled with what felt like all of our best, closest friends.
And so of course, since we're still high off of their Warsaw performance, we're playing back this one. Fresh off of their release of Survival Sounds,
they performed upbeat songs like "Sound of Erasing," "Came Out of a Lady," and more. The harmony of the horns, the rhythmic guitars, and Traver's effortlessly elastic voice make for an infectiously feel-good experience.
