Interview: Bombpops at the Voltage Lounge

5/22/17 – The Voltage Lounge was host to Red City Radio, The Bombpops and Russian Girlfriends as they stopped in Philadelphia as a part of their huge national tour.  The tiny club offered a no-frills setting though the narrow space upstairs held the merch and additional vantage points.  For those of us who stayed on the floor, it was an intimate event.

Blood Lust Death Tour at Reverb
