Red Cities Live Show Review: Lincoln Exposed 2018!

Red Cities had a nice write-up by KZUM 89.3 FM, our local community-based radio station, at Lincoln Exposed 2018! Check the video below!

“The four-piece garage/punk rock, Red Cities woke up the 1867 Bar with a howl before introducing themselves. Matt Bokovoy’s sharp guitar riffs led the songs, while Byron Anway’s animated showmanship added to his fast-paced, punchy vocals, the rhythm section, Josh Leeker (drums) and Justin Cermak (bass), kept the group rock-steady. The vast amount of influences from post-punk, classic rock, a little blues and much more, kept the show interesting, the audience entertained and dancing. Their most recent album Soft Target was released October 2017. There is another, self-titled album and two EPs available on Bandcamp.”
