Tour/Great Guy Alert: River City Extension

Isn't it amazing when you stumble ass-backwards into some of the nicest, most genuine people? We at Stark, in conjunction with a few other close friends/colleagues, have it on good opinion and interaction, that River City Extension are just such genuine folk. Through a myriad of random occurrence and feeler emails, we were put in touch with Joe Michelini, frontman for this Tom's River, NJ, roots-rock, eight-piece ensemble. Having performed with the likes of the Avett Brothers, Robert Randolph and more, RCE's fantastic attitude and love for what they do, does not go unnoticed. They are currently readying the release of their newest album, The Unmistakeable Man,  which drops on May 11th on XOXO Records (home of the Gaslight Anthem). Until then you can check them out live -- full list of April and May tour dates are available after the jump.

Be glad you heard about RCE now, because you would have likely been blindsided by their genoristy and talent in the near future.
