Ra Ra Riot @ 930 – 12/11


New Yorkers Ra Ra Riot are coming to Louisville’s 930 Listening Room on December 11th with So Many Dynamos (St. Louis) and Princeton.  RRR was just in Cincinnati 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 price of admission.

So Many Dynamos treads the fine line between indie rock and dance rock, and have toured with seemingly everyone including Louisville’s own VHS or Beta just last year.  Princeton on the other hand has spent the last year dealing with comparisons to Vampire Weekend, a band they’ve spent a lot of time supporting over the last year since they blew up.  With similar literate lyrics, you’re bound to love them, and, what’s more, you might event have the opportunity to catch a cover…and he covers some pretty brilliant songs…

Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 on the day of the show.  You can get them at the 930 or Ear X-tacy starting this Friday, Oct. 17th.  The show starts at 8pm, but at the 930 it’s important to get there early to get a good seat, so I suggest coming when the doors open at 7pm.
