Hurray for the Riff Raff at The Egg

the musical act Hurray for the Riff Raff

The folk/rock/blues act Hurray for the Riff Raff is set to play a show at The Egg September 15. Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 30 -- they're $29.50.

Hurray for the Riff Raff is centered around Bronx native Alynda Lee Segarra. From an All Things Considered profile earlier this year:

So at 17, she left, literally thumbing rides and hopping trains across the country. She made New Orleans her home and eventually started the band Hurray for the Riff Raff. Their music sounds like those long road trips Segarra made in the West: A mixture of rock, folk and blues. But their new album is something different, because Segarra finally got to point where she was ready to grapple with the part of her identity that she'd pushed away when she was younger. She's a Puerto Rican woman, from a New York neighborhood, and that history is now part of her music. The new album is called The Navigator.

The album was released this spring and it's gotten strong reviews.

The opener for the show at The Egg is Xenia Rubinos.

Troy has way more parking downtown than any other city I visit. There are 3 parking garages downtown and 2 are within 1000ft of Monument Square. There are public surface lots nearby. Outside the downtown core there is tons of street parking with few to no restrictions. It is unrealistic to expect cities to have parking directly in front of your destination like the suburbs. That's WHY they're different classifications.
