Seattle’s new pop, rock, funk super group, RUB, is a sweet combination of members from Trick Candles, Salt Lick, Acid Tongue, NighTraiN, Cute Lepers & La Fonda led by singer-songwriter, Princella Ray. Rub performed in the all ages venue, Vera Project, to a capacity crowd with a line of 100+ hopeful fans waiting outside. Rub blends pop sounds with positive lyrics meant to inspire you to get up and shake things up. The band’s latest single “Contentment” was recently chosen as KEXP’s song of the day and their fans sang along to every word. The band’s infectious energy had everyone in the crowd dancing.” - Caroline Anne
