Frontier Ruckus

Thursday, June 22 @ 8:30pm Rackham Stage

Frontier Ruckus began as a high school duo in East Lansing and has evolved into a sought-after Detroit five-piece roots band making the rounds locally as well as to major festivals like Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza. Rolling Stone describes their sound as “…delicate, finger-picked banjos, aching, oaky violin and the haunting voice of frontman Matthew Milia, who conjures what might happen had Neutral Milk Hotel’s Jeff Mangum been raised in a log cabin.” This year they are on a West Coast and Midwest tour supporting Enter the Kingdom, which sees the band mixing their diverse influences of 60’s folk rock and 90’s power pop into a truly poignant, accessible tonic of sadness and sweetness. Get ready for lyrics-driven rock, folk, bluegrass, country, blues, and jazz from one of the Midwest’s rising stars.
