The Rumperbutts have arrived!
26 May 2015 | by Mark M.See all my reviews

Imagine a band much like stars Mates of State (made up of a couple in love, who get married, making music they enjoy, doing small shows), who one day trade the indie rock life for a career as the stars of a sort of bland-but-successful Wiggles/Yo Gabba Gabba/Barney TV show, touring the country to sold out live family/kid audiences. As their fame and popularity grow, their marriage self destructs. But stuck in a long term contract, the show must go on, so to speak. Or...that is at least until a cryptic wish-giver shows up, setting them on a different path. Filled with great songs, laugh out loud humor, and a bittersweet overall story, I loved this. Plus, it successfully avoids the Hollywood happy ending, the Hollywood gloomy ending, and the indie there-is-no-ending-so-lets-just-fade- out ending. Instead it manages to end in away that seems the most true to the characters and what they would want.
