See the Rubens, a Band on the Rise, Tonight at Mercury Lounge

March 11th, 2013

With this rock quartet out of New South Wales, Australia, it’s (mainly) a family affair. Brothers Sam (vocals and guitar), Elliott (keys and vocals) and Zaac (guitar) Margin, and Scott Baldwin (drums) have only been making soulful blues rock as the Rubens since 2011, but the swiftly rising band has already managed to win touring slots with Bruce Springsteen in Australia and the Black Keys in New Zealand. Their debut self-titled album, which was recorded in New York City, came out last fall, and now the Rubens are coming our way. Watch the official video for “Lay It Down,” above, and then go see them play Mercury Lounge tonight.
