Rubblebucket with Landlady at the Rex Theater, November 1, 2014 - Concert Review and Photos

With a name like Rubblebucket, it's got to be fun.

Frontwoman Kalmia Traver led the Brooklyn seven-piece on a carnival-like set that included confetti cannons, giant balloons, enormous bedsheets, a costumed flower monster, and a whole lot of sound. Traver switched back and forth between the flute and sax, while the two horn players, Adam Dotson and Alex Toth (the latter decked out in zebra print) traded off on trombone, trumpet, and even more flute. It seems like indie rock bands can't play without some horn lately, and I'm OK with that. There was also a guitar and bass player, as well a drummer and another guy on synths. But nothing was expendable on this wild ride.

Saturday was the last day of Rubblebucket's tour with Landlady, who themselves brought down the house with a high-energy opening set. Lead singer Adam Schatz bounced all over the stage and ended with a humanistic commentary on how loss brings us all together, while beckoning the crowd closer and closer to the stage. Rubblebucket brought all of Landlady onstage for a couple songs, and Traver was even onstage for the final Landlady song. The bands clearly grew close over the past two months on the road together and they were both full of emotion by the end of the night, which ended with the band - one mixed-up entity at this point - traveling mariachi-style through the crowd and setting up shop over near the merch table for an impromptu jam session that neither the fans nor artists wanted to end.

Here are some photos from the evening:

  3. The needle provided with the tools plays a major role in the working of the tool. The laser needle reads the audio that has been fed in the tool and imparts exactly the same quality as it has read from the feeding done. record player for sale
