On our albums “Red Cities” (2014) and “Soft Target” (2017), we take up themes dealing with working class liberation and social democracy, more generally part of our socialist ethos as musicians and people. Check out “Worker Song” and “It’s Political” from our October 2017 show with the indomitable Child Bite!
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.”
Lincoln Exposed 2018 is a local music festival that originated several years ago through Pete Watters, owner of the infamous The Zoo Bar. The festival kicks off February 7 and runs to February 10. Red Cities will be playing at Bar 1867!
