JoinTheRukkus blog

We are JoinTheRukkus—the ambassadors, if you will—and if there’s one thing we know, it’s live music. Picture a colony of live music junkies based in New York City. That’s us.
Although the term “junkie” is typically used to describe addicts and users… wait, no that’s actually pretty accurate. You see, we have an insatiable appetite for concerts. We’d sleep under a stage and wake up every time an artist came on if it were permissible by law (we checked; it’s not). Consider this blog a way of sharing our love for live music.
In this day and age, there’s so much music out there that it’s almost impossible to keep track of it all. Luckily, since we have no personal lives outside of music, we’re happy to do all the hard work for you. Our writers and photographers scour tons of diverse music scenes across the U.S. to find the best live acts in music today. We strive to provide a wide spectrum of artists and genres, and we’re happy leaving the over-analysis to music critic windbags. This is a happy place.
If you see something you like, head over to our Mother Ship and get yourself to a show! Want something a little more personalized? Rukkus automatically recommends shows in your music scene based on your location and personal taste, and also lets you know when your favorite artists are in town.
We personally recommend music based on our genuine appreciation for it. For every artist published on this blog, at least one person on our staff has seen them play live first-hand and has given their stamp of approval (i.e. they “killed it” live).
Either way, we’ll see you at the show (we’ll be the ones singing every word).
