THE HOPE COLLEGE Concert Series has been on a roll lately – following hard on the heels of a successful show with the Soil & the Sun and My Brightest Diamond at the beginning of February, the Series has lined up alt-pop indie rockers Ra Ra Riot to play at the Knickerbocker Theatre on April 11. Since its formation in 2006, the band has released two albums, 2008’s The Rhumb Line and 2010’s The Orchard, and has been noted for its great live appearances, as well as having had the distinction of performing at the South by Southwest music festival multiple times. With influences like U2, The Police, Phil Collins and an amalgamation of all of the band members’ personal music tastes,


it’s hard to pinpoint Ra Ra Riot’s genre – the band features driving string harmonies, which gives it a soft, smooth feel, but with a raw vocal edge to it all. Is it too much to call it symphonic indie rock? Perhaps, but maybe the unclassifiable, label-defying nature of the music is what gives the band its soothing charm. By Meaghan Igel
