Hurray for the Riff Raff at First Avenue 11/7/2015


Alynda Segarra’s Americana music collective played First Avenue on 11/7 opening for City in Color. There was quite the buzz around this band and the venue was nearly full when they took the stage. The set featured mostly songs from the 2014 album “Small Town Heroes”. Segarra has a very interesting stage presence she transitions from bluesy to folk and back, yet there is a rock’n roll vibe. The description that came to mind (and I mean this in the best possible way) “An Appalachian Amy Winehouse”.

She told the crowd that some venues just have the best fans and judging by the cheers answering her, the audience agreed. Overall I liked Hurray for the Riff Raff’s set.
