This spring the rapturous, octet, Rubblebucket are releasing their first live CD/DVD in conjunction with a U.S. tour. Live in Chicago features hits from the band's 2011 Omega La La, which was produced by Eric Broucek (LCD Soundsystem, !!!, Holy Ghost) at DFA Studios, and mastered by Joe Lambert (Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors, etc.). However, veteran fans will not be disappointed as Live in Chicago also includes old favorites such as: "Bikes", "November", and "Philips Van" from Rubblebucket's self titled debut.
Of Rubblebucket's recent sold-out Bowery Ballroom gig in NYC, CMJ writes, "Unprovoked chants of “RUB-BLE-BUC-KET!” and “Let’s get weird!” rebounded about the empty Ballroom stage. Things would get weird. They’d also get loud, sweaty, ebullient and adorable, in that order."
