River City Extension - Relatable Folk
Monday, August 15, 2011

Very few bands can relate to audiences at both Bamboozle and Warped Tour, but River City Extension is a very unique band. The ever expanding folk outfit from Toms River, New Jersey, which is the baby of lead singer and guitarist Joe Michelini, has been connecting with crowds all over the country with their upbeat, danceable, live performances, creating new fans and then crashing with them at their houses.

I caught up with Michelini at Warped Tour's Uniondale, NY, date to find out more about the creation of River City Extension, why he feels the music is so universal, and how long he plans on sleeping over at fans’ houses. He also revealed the two most random co-signs he’s received on his music and his thoughts on those artists’ work.

FYI - You may need to crank the volume on this interview, as Michelini has a soft speaking voice and we were a little far away from the microphone.

Big ups to videographer Natty S. for capturing this, and all my Warped Tour interviews.
