Show Post: In House #1507
The Rubes are a quartet out of Salt Lake City that are rather difficult to describe. Their own self-description sheds little light on this problem, starting out to say that they "formed like Voltron in 2002," before going on to declare that "we don't sound like no one." In any case, they've just released their second full-length, Mutiny to a Revolution, an unholy union of Chuck Berry, Camper Van Beethoven, gutter punks, boogie woogie and robots. Or something like that. What is slightly more assured is that they have proven to be a polarizing act in the regional music press, garnering glowing and outlandishly harsh criticism alike. The band hits the 1st National Bar in Pocatello, ID later this week.
