In what has become a happy tradition in Asbury Park, River City Extension has announced its plans for the 4th Annual Simple Gifts benefit show on Thanksgiving Eve this November 27th. This follows the band’s active summer and 2013 out on a multitude of tours.
Joining RCE on the bill this year are favorites like Kevin Devine & The Goddamn Band, Those Mockingbirds, and Harper’s Fellow who just released their debut full length Thanks For Tonight. The show, as always, will go down at The Stone Pony with donations being accepted for the Double Blessings Food and Clothing Drive of Ocean and Monmouth County.
General Admission tickets are on sale now for $15.99 with a special bundle package going for $32 which includes; a River City Extension coffee mug, silk screen poster (limited to 100, hand numbered by artist), and a ½ lb of River City ‘Roast’, a gourmet blend by the band, and local Monmouth County coffee roaster BOOSKERDOO.
Be sure to scoop your tickets ASAP as this show always sells out and is the place to be pre-turkey time. Also, check out Chris Rotolo’s write-up of Simple Gifts III which saw RCE take the stage with The Front Bottoms and Brick + Mortar.
