Syracuse’s Ra Ra Riot just announced an extensive North American tour in support of their sophomore LP, The Orchard. Though I didn’t get my wish of a Brooklyn Bowl album release party, the band didn’t disappoint me with their venue choices for NYC. Not wanting to lose the intimacy of a club setting, Ra Ra Riot is playing unprecedented back to back to back to back gigs at the Bowery Ballroom (Sep 21-22) and the Music Hall of Williamsburg (Sep 23-24). As you may have noticed from my earlier post, tickets for those shows went on sale today. The Orchard comes out on August 24 on Barsuk Records.
