Indie-rockers Ra Ra Riot formed in early 2006, when they were friends at Syracuse University. After playing several house shows and venues around Syracuse as well as a handful of national festivals, the band released their debut record, "The Rhumb Line," in 2008.

Now, with the help of Death Cab For Cutie guitarist Chris Walla and Vampire Weekend's multi-instrumentalist Rostam Batmanglij, they released their follow-up, "The Orchard," earlier this year on Barsuk Records.

Songs performed: "Too Dramatic," "Boy" and "Kansai."
