Watch Hurray for the Riff Raff live at NPR Music's 15th anniversary concert

Hurray for the Riff Raff was a natural pick for NPR Music's 15th-anniversary celebration, given that we've been following Alynda Segarra's eternally shape-shifting roots-rock band for almost as long as we've been around. Segarra just released HFTRR's eighth album, LIFE ON EARTH, earlier this year, and its songs of survival, community and rediscovery translated to a fiery, inspired set at Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club.

  • "PIERCED ARROWS"
  • "RHODODENDRON"
  • "POINTED AT THE SUN"

    Stephen Thompson is a writer, editor and reviewer for NPR Music, where he speaks into any microphone that will have him and appears as a frequent panelist on All Songs Considered. Since 2010, Thompson has been a fixture on the NPR roundtable podcast Pop Culture Happy Hour, which he created and developed with NPR correspondent Linda Holmes. In 2008, he and Bob Boilen created the NPR Music video series Tiny Desk Concerts, in which musicians perform at Boilen's desk. (To be more specific, Thompson had the idea, which took seconds, while Boilen created the series, which took years. Thompson will insist upon equal billing until the day he dies.)
