Ra Ra Riot

Ra Ra Riot completed their invasion of NYC with two appearances yesterday (8/24) as part of a celebration of their new LP The Orchard, out now via Barsuk. Photos from their Sound Fix (live set) and Brooklyn Bowl (DJ) appearances continue below.

The Syracuse band will be back in NYC at the tail end of September for a string of four appearances that are part of a larger tour. The NYC shows are at Bowery Ballroom (on 9/21 & 9/22) and MHOW (on 9/23 & 9/24). Tickets are on sale for all four shows (9/21 tickets, 9/22 tickets with Lower Dens, 9/23 tickets with North Highlands & We Barbarians, and 9/24 tickets with Amanaguchi). More openers to be announced.

Went to that Prom You were Promised gig last year and Vampire Weekend ruined the prom...what the fuck was that promoter smoking when he decided to let vampire Weekend dj over Hercules and Love Affair and Special Disco Version...it went from full on dance party to empty room in about 2 tracks...

There is nothing like a bunch of dukes crowded around a laptop checking email. Nice stage presence.

as a DJ, i'd be absolutely frightened to DJ after Special Disco Version... saw them spin at PS1 a few weeks back and nearly pissed myself they held it down so well.

"ba ba boner" has to be one of the funniest things i've ever read

Posted by Anonymous | August 25, 2010 3:16 PM

I wonder if Cellist reads these comments and has a major ego as a result. I mean, I hope she does.

Posted by Anonymous | August 25, 2010 3:49 PM

Posted by Anonymous | August 25, 2010 4:23 PM

I wonder if she would model for an aspiring "artist". I have a very interesting piece in mind.

i wonder if she'd appreciate a mouth full of hot steamy hummus

Posted by Anonymous | August 25, 2010 4:50 PM

gross, you just ruined it

Posted by Anonymous | August 25, 2010 5:03 PM

the hummus thing needs to die. When did it start? Why?

about 2000bc

egyptians got hungry and there weren't enough animals around to feed them all.

What did the cello say to the cellist?

Bow me

I find it insane that for 4 months there was one hummus guy. I though we all hated his comments. Apparently some here are allot more impressionable than I could have imagined. Its to late now to just ignore. Its not going to stop. The shit is here to stay. Dopes.

Posted by Anonymous | August 25, 2010 11:44 PM

Are you saying their is more than one hummus guy now?

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2010 12:02 AM

there is only one hummus commenter and he plays off his on comments to make it appear as if there are multiple commenters. YOU TRULY HAVE NO LIFE

I'd like to meet the man or woman who diligently plied his hummus for weeks upon weeks 'til the whole fucking thing became a sturdy brooklynvegan-comments phenom with no end in sight. Right up there with "I'd hit it" and Daft Punk jokes (both of which, however, seem to be on the wane -- we need triage out here for da ailing memes).

WHO ART THOU HUMMITE? REVEAL! I'll buy you a pita wedge.
