Ra Ra Riot

Nov. 8
8 p.m.

The craftiest of the late-‘00s prep-rock bands, Ra Ra Riot flutter back and forth between sunny contemporary pop and mannered experimental weirdness. They’ve described their new Superbloom as an East Coast band’s depiction of California, which must mean they find the West Coast confusing and overwhelming: these songs are decorated to the extreme with bouncy strings and sound effects. With Bayonne and Whosah.
