River City Extension is a lyrical indie rock band formed and led by Joe Michelini. Their upbeat american sound juxtaposes Michelini’s introspective and often personal storytelling. RCE has gone through multiple lineup changes, beginning as an acoustic combo and growing as large as 8 members. As the lineup evolves, so does the band’s varying sound.
In 2011 they became the first band to perform at the Newport Folk Festival and Warped Tour in the same year. Toeing the line between punchy folk and indie rock, RCE has toured with bands ranging from The Get Up Kids to the Avett Brothers to Augustana. River City Extension will release their third record, Deliverance, in March of 2015; watch them perform tracks from the upcoming album.
