Hurray for the Riff Raff
Saturday March 19, 2022 08:30 PM EDT
CL Critic Hal Horowitz Recommends: Alynda Segarra, aka Hurray for the Riff Raff, started recording indie folk rock professionally in 2008, but it took until 2014 for the music to congeal into scrappy, bluesy indie rock with an ominous urban Americana vibe. This is the first date on an extensive tour supporting a new Life on Earth album, the singer/songwriter’s first in five years, which they describe as “nature punk.” — HH
From the venue:One of the reasons you started listening to music in the first place might have been in the hope of finding the kind of conviction and fierce rawness evident in Hurray for the Riff Raff’s, aka Alynda Segarra’s, “nature punk” manifesto about survival, LIFE ON EARTH. A visionary musician, Segarra (they/she) is an outsider in whose voice you might find echoes of your own. On her eighth full-length album, Segarra is creating music of honesty and portent.
