Ra Ra Riot at Upstate Concert Hall

ra ra riot 2012

Indie chamber pop (or whatever you call it) group Ra Ra Riot will be back in town for a show at Upstate Concert Hall December 11. Tickets are $14 ahead / $16 day of. They go on sale this Friday (October 12).

The opener for the show is Guards.

Ra Ra Riot started at Syracuse University in 2006, and found success pretty quickly (and with reason -- they were good). This year they've been working on a new album -- without cellist Alexandra Lawn, who left the band. That might not necessarily be a big thing for some acts, but strings have been a central part of their music (violinist Rebecca Zeller is still with them). So it'll be interesting to see how things have turned out.

For a decade All Over Albany was a place for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. It was kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who could help you find out what's up. AOA stopped publishing at the end of 2018.
