Exclusive interview- Joe Michelini from River City Extension

By  |  1 Comment

Got to sit down (Indian style) with Joe Michelini (writer/guitarist/vocalist for the band) from River City Extension.  Such a nice guy!  I love when I am able to talk to people who really have something to say, especially when it is interesting.

River City Extension is an eight-member “lyrical folk” band from Toms River, New Jersey.  They recently released their new full-length album, Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Your Anger, a record inspired by a darker time in Michelini’s life.  Check out my exclusive interview with him below! And be sure to catch them on their current tour!

Emily is an over-enthusiastic lover of music, books, movies, fashion, and culture in general. Her love of music spans across all genres (what is a genre anymore? she waxes poetic to herself), though she was nursed on true punk and will never understand “redneck country” music – tractors are not and cannot be sexy. Emily currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and considers herself to be a great wit, though she is still waiting on validation from a credible source.
