Pin It


Ra Ra Riot hails from our neighboring Syracuse, and the band has made a name for itself on the indie-rock scene. The band plays a brand of pop music that is made distinct through a heavy use of string orchestrations. Recently, the band released the album "Beta Love," which is perhaps its most accessible, mainstream album to date. With the departure of cellist Alexandra Lawn this past year, the band has embraced less of a chamber-pop aesthetic, and more of a synth-based, dance vibe. "Beta Love" is the type of album that could rocket Ra Ra Riot past its major underground success, toward widespread popularity.

Ra Ra Riot performs with The Static Jacks on Wednesday, June 12, 7 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $15-$17.
