Monday giving you the blues? No worries, Rabbits! We have TWO — that’s right TWO — ticket giveaways for you this week. River City Extension and The Drowning Men are coming through California on tour, and Rabbits Black is your only place to win tickets to both their LA and SF shows. Find out a bit about these budding artists, and check out how to win a pair of tickets to see River City Extension and The Drowning Men at The Satellite in Los Angeles on Friday, June 15, and Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco on Saturday, June 16.
River City Extension are ready to break into the market of Americana-infused indie folk. With a more accessible and Midwest country-folk infused sound than other indie folk institutions, River City Extension are bringing their large stage production through California. The octet pack a lot of energy into their recordings; expect the same enthusiasm to take over The Satellite and Bottom of the Hill this weekend. Their just-released sophomore album, Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Your Anger, is a polished composition that highlights the group’s maturing song writing. Could River City Extension be the next in what seems to be a long line of numerically-enhanced, multi-instrumentalist bands (think The Decemberists, Broken Social Scene, Arcade Fire, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros)? Maybe. The best way to find out? Check ’em out on this tour!
Co-headlining the tour are The Drowning Men, who will release their sophomore album, All of the Unknown, on July 17th. Keeping true to theme, the Oceanside quintet have a catchy pop-infused indie-folk sound. The group have quite impressive touring credentials, supporting the likes of Airborne Toxic Event and Flogging Molly. The new album promises even more intricate arrangements that incorporate some of the same unique instrumentation for which The Drowning Men have become known. Rabbits Black will have a review of their new album in July, but until the release, you can preview their material on this tour.
