Ra Ra Riot’s SXSW 2013 Social Underground Set Streaming Online
The music is flowing at SXSW 2013, and Ra Ra Riot's complete one-hour SXSW Social Underground set -- which took place yesterday (March 12) -- is now streaming online (watch it above). While the footage is a little on the dark side, the group's energetic synth-fueled pop seems to be a hit with the Austin crowd gathered to see them.
Ra Ra Riot released their latest record, 'Beta Love,' this past January. The album marks the band’s first outing as a four-piece, with Wes Miles on vocals, Milo Bonacci on guitar, Mathieu Santos on bass and Rebecca Zeller on violin. The 11 songs on 'Beta Love' are heavily informed by the works of cyperpunk novelist William Gibson and futurist Ray Kurzweil’s musings on the technological singularity and transhumanism. Listen for those influences as you watch the video above.
