The Fishtown River City Festival just announced the lineup for its sixth annual installment, and the free concert on October 5th will be topped by electro-pop crew (and recent 2nd Street Fest headliners) Vacationer. The band – fronted by Kenny Vasoli of The Starting Line – is still riding high on its 2012 LP Gone, and earlier this summer it recorded a fantastic Key Studio Session. They’ll take the stage along with jam rock crew American Babies, psychedelic pop boys Cheers Elephant and more. More information and set times can be found at the River City Festival website. Below, watch video of Vacationer recording their Key Session, and download tracks from Cheers Elephant and American Babies from The Key Studio Sessions Vol. 1.
