The Egg announces Hurray For The Riff Raff Concert on September 15

The Egg has announced that Hurray For The Riff Raff will perform in concert on Friday, September 15th at 8 PM as part of the American Roots & Branches concert series.

Hurray For The Riff Raff is Alynda Lee Segarra, but in many ways it's much more than that: it's a young woman leaving her indelible stamp on the American folk tradition – mixing in a little bit of syncopated Caribbean strut, down home rock and roll and, Appalachian rags. Like a song-cycle from an imaginary Off-Broadway musical, her new album The Navigator rises from the ashes of loneliness and striving, honky tonks and long walks by the river of urban dreams.

Xenia Rubinos - who uses her powerful voice to create beats and melodies from scratch from a wide range of influences from R&B and hip-hop to Caribbean rhythms all delivered with a soulful punk aura - will open the show.

Tickets to the performance are $29.50 and are currently available to members of The Egg at  The Egg Box Office at the Empire State Plaza and by telephone – 518-473-1845. The Egg accepts new memberships for those wishing to take advantage of the pre-sale. Public on sale date is June 30.
