Hurray for the Riff Raff

I thought for a quick second that Friday Cheers had booked Future Islands one Friday, only to follow them up with Riff Raff the next Friday. Odd choice, Friday Cheers, I thought. BUT NOTE: Hurray for the Riff Raff is in no way related to regular Riff Raff. In fact, Hurray for the Riff Raff couldn’t be more different from the weird, spring-break rap guy. No, the former is a charming banjo-forward music collective formed by Alynda Lee, who seems equally as charming. It’s perfect, chill music for this week’s return-to-summer weather.

Joe Pug

I have a hard time with singer-songwriter music, but I think it’s my fault. As my good pal just informed me “It’s because you have no feelings. That kind of music should make you feel things.” Well excuuuuse me for my clanging robot heart! So if your insides are filled with meat and you enjoy music that causes your brain to release chemicals to alter your mood, then this may be for you! Also: A harmonica!
