Watch Hurray For The Riff Raff Perform on Letterman Show

Jul 11th, 2014 in Music


While we were away, one of our favorite finds of 2014, Hurray For The Riff Raff, performed The Body Electric on the Letterman Show.   As mentioned before we left, the song (from their spellbinding Small Town Heroes album) is leader Alynda Lee Segarra’s rending response to the murder ballad.  In the album’s notes, the song is dedicated to the Indian woman gang-raped in 2012, Damini, making a recent link between violence and women, and the murder ballads’ crimes-of-passion themes.  Check it out below.  If you like what you see, you can catch a repeat of the episode on Letterman tonight. Watch the official lyric video for the song below.
