River City Tanlines

Sign up or log in to save this event to your list and see who's attending!

The River City Tanlines (the name being a play on the concept of a “farmer tan”) is a three-piece rock band from Memphis, TN. Together since late 2004, the band has toured extensively in North America and Europe playing clubs and festivals, and has eight releases on various record labels around the world. Their album I’m Your Negative was released by Dirtnap Records out of Portland, OR. Alicja Trout, the principle songwriter, is a veteran of countless noteworthy punk/indie bands over the years, including The Clears (Smells Like Records), The Lost Sounds (Empty Records, In the Red) and her other current projects, MouseRocket and Black Sunday. Likewise, the powerful rhythm section of Terrence Bishop and John Bonds are no strangers to success, having played together behind such names as Jack Oblivian, R.L. Burnside, and Monsieur Jeffrey Evans. In 2009 they appeared in Craig Brewer’s (Hustle and Flow, Black Snake Moan) web-series (and soundtrack) for MTV, Five Dollar Cover, and performed “I’m Your Negative” in a rollerderby fight scene. They also have a song (“Black Knight,” a crowd favorite at live shows) featured in the EA Sports video game Skate. This past year they won a battle of the bands organized for an episode of Samantha Brown’s Great Weekends when the show was filmed in Memphis. RCT last toured the US in July 2010.
