What people are saying about Hurray For The Riff Raff

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The most important band in America right now A brilliant show caught Hurray for the Riff Raff at a pivotal point in their career. The new, tougher indie sound gives them a bigger musical canvas to work with than the strictly roots approach of their first few records. Bandleader Alynda lee Segarra has added real musical muscle to superbly compliment her raw, compassionate songwriting. It works brilliantly. HFTRR are now equally at home delivering their whisper-quiet, mesmerising tales of heartbreak (St. Roch Blues) as they are the anthem call-to-arms Pa'lante. You get the feeling that they won't be spending much more of their time in micro venues like this. Festivals and stadia await. Also, a band with left-leaning, Latino and LGBT sympathies could be just the thorn in the side the new Whitehouse regime needs. A touchstone and rallying point for those with no stomach for Trump's politics of hatred and suspicion. The sky's the limit for them. Watch them fly...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Expected acoustic. It was a much bigger, electric, performance. But in this case, the bigger, the better! A great evening. Hope to see them again soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant from beginning to end Hurray for the Riff Raff rose to prominence as a neo-traditional folk-country combo. You can imagine my surprise that when I saw them there was not a single fiddle, banjo or even acoustic guitar in sight. This is because Alynda Segarra and her band have gone electric and the results are phenomenal. The concert I saw included re-imaginings of her old material (Daniella and Look Out Mama were highlights for me) as well as songs from her upcoming album called The Navigator. The songs performed from the Navigator were superb from the new wave flavor of Hungry Ghost to the salsa tinged Rican Beach to the bluesy Live to Save. Judging from what I've seen, the Navigator could be Hurray for the Riff Raff's best album yet (which is no small feat considering the masterpiece that is Small Town Heroes). Of course, what really made the night special was Alynda Segerra's excellent stage presence. She sings the songs with the emotion that they deserve, but she never goes into hammy territory. And the cover of Fortunate Man at the end - wow - just wow. Hope I get to see this band again as soon as I can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely brilliant! Hurray for the Riff Raff are my absolute favourite live band ever! Had a fantastic night at the best gig I've been to in years! Absolutely fabulous musicians and the amazing vocal talents of Alynda Lee Segora made for a fantastic experience! The whole band chatted and signed autographs after the show! They were a new discovery for me, but I bought their new album on the night, which they signed for, and posed for photos! I've since ordered more of their albums- and love them all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not enough people have heard of Hurray For The Riff Raff. Not enough people have heard of Hurray For The Riff Raff. The band from New Orleans opened its latest overseas tour in The Globe, Cardiff to a couple of hundred fans who clearly appreciated and loved their roots music, a mixture of American folk, blues, country, bluegrass … you name it - all the music forms that have seeded in and grown across the Southern States of the USA. I had travelled across the river from Bristol to see them, to tick them off my bucket list. I wanted to see them so bad. The band is fronted by singer/songwriter Alynda Lee Segarra who sang each song with true feeling for the lyrics, never over-reaching or resorting to vocal histrionics, and they played with a great respect for music traditions. Lee Segarra has one of the richest voices on the scene right now, and her songs come at you from a modern, feminist perspective. We get laments for the victims of racial hatred and pleas for women’s rights, not exactly the usual subjects for these traditionally conservative music genres. The set list consisted of some early songs, some recent ones, and a few new ones off a much-anticipated new album due out in a few months’ time. Lee Segarra was beautifully supported by her 4-piece band, although there was no appearance from violinist Yosi Pearlstein (has he left the band?), instead his strings contribution was picked up a crystal-clear lead guitar that added a new dimension to some of the familiar songs. My only quibble would be that the keyboards were not sufficiently amplified and got lost in the mix. HFTRR may be one of the best bands in the world right now, and judging from the reception given by others in the audience I may not be alone in this opinion. They really should be playing to far bigger crowds than this. Not enough people have heard them play. I must mention the support act, The People The Poet, a local band from Pontypridd, whose dark anthems of youthful introspection and despair are worth checking out.
