Ra Ra Riot/The Little Ones @ Gypsy Hut – 4/30

 

New Yorkers Ra Ra Riot are coming to Cincinnati’s Gypsy Hut on April 30th, along with The Little Ones.   Ra Ra Riot is a true full band, consisting of vocals, bass, guitar, cello, violin & drums.   With all the buzz behind these guys, it’s hard to believe they’re only 2 years old, but when you’ve got CMJ support you & Spin saying “Ra Ra Riot is one of the best young bands we’ve heard in a really long time” you’re in a pretty good position for yourself.  The praise they’ve garnered for their live shows is enough to justify the trip to Cincinnati.

Ra Ra Riot completed their debut self-titled album last year, supported by their first ever tour….this is their second, which includes a long stop-over at SXSW, and lovely Cincinnati, Oh.

Just as exciting is their tourmates, The Little Ones.  The Little Ones are a indie pop group whose song “Lovers Who Uncover” you may recognize as one of the Crystal Castles masterpieces made available earlier this year.  Otherwise, you might just recognize them for exactly what they are…a sunny and light-hearted kind of indie pop band that have earned them comparisons to the Beach Boys, the Zombies and other pop forefathers.
