The Rubens at Zoo Twilights 2017 Tickets
5:30pm, Sun 5th February, 2017
Melbourne Zoo, VIC
In 2017 The Rubens will make their Zoo Twilights debut, supported by Bec Sandridge, for a night to remember amongst the picturesque Melbourne Zoo.
Formed in NSW by brothers Zaac, Sam and Elliott Margin together with friends Scott Baldwin and William Zeglies,The Rubens have grown over the past five years from an outer-suburban indie-rock band to a bona fide force-to-be-reckoned-with. Their sophomore album Hoops (2015), a record which The Music detailed as "crammed with gritty guitars, foot-stomping rhythms and Sam Margin's signature bluesy vocals that ooze country town swag," debuted at #2 on the ARIA chart first week, with the band subsequently selling out every show on their album tour. After a summer of festival slots and further sold out shows, their lead single, also called 'Hoops', scored the top spot on the 2016 triple j Hottest 100, kicking the single into Platinum status.
Joining them on the Twilights stage is Bec Sandridge - the Sydney-via-Glasgow pop/punk off-beat guitarist. Her latest single 'You're A F*cking Joke' was labelled "strikingly anthemic" by Rolling Stone and has received critical acclaim from media all over the country.
The Rubens are proud to be performing in support of Zoos Victoria's fight against wildlife extinction.
