RUBY THE RABBITFOOT returns to the Empty Bottle for the first time since August 2015, bringing her southern, soul-flooded melodies all the way from Athens, Georgia. This young folk/pop artist can sure as hell sing a hook and will make for a fun night of pop loveliness. Not many people can take something as devastating and tumultuous as a breakup and turn it into an album thick with joyous beats, infectious melodies and lyrics that spin disappointment and desolation into revelatory moments, but RUBY THE RABBITFOOT is not someone who sees things in simple black and white. On her third album, Divorce Party, she creates a vivid world that stretches far beyond just the songs – from videos that straddle the line of performance and art, to her fearless use of fashion, to the music itself, which serves as the thrilling, creative center to her unique universe. Produced by Andy LeMaster (Bright Eyes, Azure Ray), Divorce Party is celebration of life after loss, and the creative renewal that comes from finding light amongst the darkness.
