The Rupert Selection Acoustic
August 5th @ 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm
The Rupert Selection is an American psychedelic grunge band from Boston, Massachusetts. Comprising Reilly Somach (guitar/vocals), Sam Bouve (bass/vocals), and Peter Bartash (drums), the band has created a loyal following throughout New England with their “original voice” and “sound anchored in hard rock” (the Boston Globe).
Improper Magazine had this to say about the band’s live shows—“The Rupert Selection sparked the loudest crowd interaction, with fans shouting to fill the pauses in the trio’s deft, dynamic mash of Nirvana-Esque blasts and math-prog rhythm shifts.” Embodying everything you love about 90s grunge but with a modern twist, the band has released 3 EPs and a full-length album. Each release was built upon the previous album but without leaving the band’s original psychedelic rock roots behind.
The Rupert Selection has left its mark on Boston with sold-out venues and heaps of praise from local media—nominated for “Rock Artist of The Year” back to back in 2018 and 2019 by the Boston Music Awards, being a finalist in the WZLX Rock and Roll Rumble, being named one of the “10 Acts On The Rise In Boston” by WGBH, and one of “10 Local Acts Making Waves” by Improper Boston Magazine.
The future is bright for The Rupert Selection as a new album is in the works, with Brian Charles at the helm as producer.
