Mod Mobilian Presents

Hurray for the Riff Raff

Acoustic Tour of

Southern Listening Rooms

November 4 – November 14, 2012

Fresh off their two-month long tour of Europe, Hurray for the Riff Raff returns home to the American South for a unique Acoustic Tour of Southern Listening Rooms, proudly presented by Mod Mobilian.

Instead of playing in loud, smoky bars, this will be a quiet, acoustic affair where the band will be playing venues where the music is the focus of the evening.  You will be able to see (and listen to) them like you never have before. And Alynda Lee Segarra is, in our opinion, one of the best contemporary Southern songwriters.

In May of 2012, Hurray for the Riff Raff released its third LP, Look Out Mama, an album that No Depression said sounds “like something The Band would’ve had playing on a Victrola while making Music From Big Pink.”  NPR’s Ann Powers on All Songs Considered exclaimed, “I can’t stop listening to this woman’s voice. I’m obsessed!” and named the album one of her favorite records of 2012 (so far).
Look Out Mama has been met with similar effusive praise in the UK.  It has received 4 Star reviews in Mojo, the Sun, and the Irish Times to name a few.  Uncut gave the album an 8/10 and stated, “Segarra backed by local honky-tonkers The Tumbleweeds, whose mountain strings and acoustics bathe her wonderfully compelling voice in an authentic wash of hobo folk.” Since returning to New Orleans, members have found time to guest star on HBO’s Treme.
The tour will stop in Mobile, AL on Wednesday, November 14th at Catt’s Avalon 360.  If you have not had the opportunity to hear music in this great new venue – this is your chance.  Tickets are only $5 and the show is being co-presented by the University of South Alabama’s Independent Music Collective. Do not miss this unique show.
