Londonist Names Rubblebucket One Of Their “Best Gigs”


It’s safe to say that Rubblebucket has been doing OK for themselves as they tour across the pond.

First they landed the coveted honor of making Arcade Fire’s now legendary bobbleheads come to life onstage at their Glastonbury show, and now the Brookyln-based indie dance pop outfit’s recent London gig has been named one of the week’s best by arts & entertainment hub, Londonist.

We can’t wait to see what they have in store for Madison fans when they roll up to the High Noon Saloon with Body Language on September 28!  Click here for tickets.
