Band To Watch: RFA

Our friend Roob (you’d know him if you saw him) says RFA is “one of the best live bands on the planet” (and he goes to more shows than anyone you know). Of the Philly outfit’s self-titled debut from last year, he says it’s “literally one of the best things I’ve ever heard” (it was number one on his list of the 100 best records of 2018, and album track “Suzie Lee” was his top song of the year). While we don’t feel quite as strongly as Roob about RFA, we do think that if you haven’t checked them out yet, you are really missing out. They are Roob tested and MAGNET approved. RFA recently played a hometown show at Underground Arts, and MAGNET photographer Chris Sikich was there seeking—and finding—simple pleasures.
