There, quite possibly, may not be a more loveable bunch bopping about the scene these days than the peppy, precious popsters who comprise Syracuse NY's rag tag outfit, Ra Ra Riot. The band's recently released debut record, The Rhumb Line, has been a Fall standard 'round these parts...so we gathered half the office and made our way to Sound Fix in Brooklyn last evening to get a taste of the live evolution of the band. You might recall we filmed Ra Ra Riot in their infancy, almost two years ago, at the Canal Room. They were good then...they're even better now. Singer Wesley Miles is a comfortable kind of front man, twisting and turning his patented, pitchy melodies wherever he so pleases...all while Cellist Alexandra Lawn, violinist Rebecca Zeller, and bass player Mathieu Santos spin the light and loveable pieces of pop into a tizzy with swirling textures, and backbone to boot. Our only qualm? The band only managed to muster up a half hour set...though I suppose the fact that it was FREE made up for that one. Check out more pictures, and a full-slate of tour dates below. david pitz
