Ra Ra Riot!

My friend Graham took me to see the Editors the other night. They were pretty good but about halfway through their set it became clear it was all a bit samey, and had to wait til near the end to hear their best song, Munich. Before them was Biffy Clyro and have absolutly nothing to say about them other then it was a shame the wonderfull Ra Ra Riot didn't have their slot and play to more people. They were first on and totally blew me away! Maybe like The Arcade Fire hosting a Smiths vs New Order competion wrapped up in a Werther’s Original? They have a 7” which I grabbed at the show, an EP, and will be recording their debut album next month. The recordings so far don't do them justice so go check your local listings and be sure to go check their live set out.

Aren't they the best? I have seen Ra Ra Riot a bunch of times and the act never gets stale because they are such dynamos up there on stage! Between all the moving and bumping, it is rare when something doesn't get unplugged or unstrung.

My pics from their shows:

PS - They are recording a new album in November!
