Hurray for the Riff Raff and Joe Pug will join folk music forces this July for a Pabst Theater Lower Level PBR $10 Buck Show.

Alynda Lee Segarra is the voice behind Hurray for the Riff Raff, and she is making her mark on American folk music. Her latest album, Small Town Heroes, has struck a chord among music critics:

“Segarra’s supple, intimate vocals are about more than conjuring a musical past – she wants to shape the future, too.” – Rolling Stone

“A subtle, expressive voice that she wraps around songs that draw on the sounds and styles of the American South.” – Wall Street Journa

“Every so often a new voice engages basic questions in subtle, exciting new ways. Alynda Lee Segarra, the 27-year-old guiding light of the New Orleans-based band Hurray For The Riff Raff, is this year’s champion.” – NPR Music

Folk singer-songwriter Joe Pug has been compared to the likes of John Prine and Bob Dylan since his 2010 album, Messenger. Pug left college to pursue his musical goals in Chicago and has since released five albums.
