Hurray for the Riff Raff

MATTHEW SINGER
7 pm., Wednesday January 09 | Free. Hurray for the Riff Raff plays nightly through Saturday, Jan 12.
 
[DIXIE FOLK] Alynda Lee has lived the life most Americana songwriters only mythologize. Born in the Bronx, she jumped a train down to New Orleans as a teenager, learned to play music from a bunch of hobo musicians, then went about starting her own Southern Gothic folk band. She’s since scrubbed up from those raw beginnings. Look Out Mama, Hurray for the Riff-Raff’s fourth record, is almost like a rustic Florence and the Machine album, framed by sweetly emotional arrangements, hand-clapping rhythms and Lee’s honeyed-yet-gritty voice. It’s ramshackle in spirit if not in sound, and a gripping honesty wriggles out from under the tight production. 



Where: Al's Den at the Crystal Hotel
Phone: 972-2670
Address: 303 SW 12th Ave.
