Rubblebucket: Blueprint for FUN

We won’t lie to you. Mere hours ago Independent Philly was pro-construction and pro-pail; but after seeing “Rubblebucket” live last evening at the Blockley Pour House in West Philly, we’ve changed our tune.

We’d heard this Brooklyn based band’s recorded sound before and digged it, but seeing Rubblebucket rock the stage live is am experience unto itself.

Featuring a trombone, trumpet, saxophone, accordion, and pitch-perfect whistling (as well as traditional drums, guitar, bass, and keyboards) Rubblebucket demolishes the routine sounds of smaller bands with a unique flavor that left the Halloween weekend crowd feeling far more treated than tricked.

Opening acts “Sister Sparrow and The Dirty Birds” ( and “Illinois” (from Pennsylvania) warmed up the crowd coming in from the chilly weather outside and by the time the headliners took the stage around 11 PM, everyone was feeling pretty toasty.

With stellar tracks like ” ” Rubblebucket rocked the costumed crowd from beginning to end. Their tour next takes them to Maine before the continue a trek down the eastern seaboard. Whether you’re in Philly or elsewhere…we strongly suggest checking this band out live. What are you waiting for?
