Hurray for the Riff Raff w/Clear Plastic Masks & Banditos

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Alynda Lee Segarra’s powerful, sultry voice carries Hurray for the Riff Raff to a higher place, pairing twang with deep, deep soul. Segarra, a young Puerto Rican raised in the Bronx, typically pays her respects to traditional folk through her warm, haunting storytelling. But Hurray for the Riff Raff’s latest album, My Dearest Darkest Neighbor, is a collection of cover songs, revealing her transition as a performer from delicate ballads to a wider breadth of genres and styles: The material runs the gamut from Townes Van Zandt to Joni Mitchell, John Lennon to Billie Holiday. Hurray for the Riff Raff has been on numerous Nashville bills this summer, playing three shows here in a span of five weeks. A new album is in the works, and recording is finishing up at Nashville’s The Bomb Shelter, where the band cut 2012’s Look Out Mama with producer Andrija Tokic, best known for his work on Alabama Shakes’ Boys & Girls.
