Ra Ra Riot Doesn't Read Reviews, But They Will Argue With You on Facebook

Although the music of Ra Ra Riot has been described as baroque pop, it's not nearly as pretentious as that might imply. Hailing from Brooklyn (by way of Syracuse), this intriguing five-piece has been making classically-tinged indie rock for the better part of seven years. And with each successive release, the band seems to get better and more focused.

Speaking from a tour stop in Seattle and in anticipation of tonight's show at the Kessler Theater, violinist Rebecca Zeller spoke with DC9 about being a classically trained musician in a rock band and how she wants to go back to Iceland.
