Visit Our First 100 Days to donate and learn more.
Song #16 comes from Hurray For The Rif Raff (aka Alynda Segarra) who delivers the spare, acoustic "Everybody Knows" which, if you were wondering, is not a cover of the Leonard Cohen song. Listen to that, along with the previous songs in the series, below.
Hurray for the Riff Raff's new album, The Navigator, is out March 10 and they'll play a record release show at Baby's All Right a couple days before that (3/10) and tickets for that show go on sale Friday, February 10 at 10 AM. The band will be back as part of their tour with Ron Gallo for a show at Bowery Ballroom on 4/20 (tickets). They've also got a new video for "Hungry Ghost" and you can watch that below.
