Ra Ra Riot have come a long way from their humble beginnings playing at houses around Syracuse University. The band first gained notoriety back in 2006 because of their energetic live show, with SPIN going so far as announcing their arrival on the music scene as “one of the best young bands we’ve heard in a really long time.” Fast forward seven years later with 4 EP’s, 3 studio albums and countless shows under their belt, and it’s safe to say that Ra Ra Riot have firmly lived up to those complimentary words. With the release of their latest album Beta Love in early 2013, the band have hit the road in order to share their boisterous synth-pop with the entire nation finding their way to the lovely 9:30 Club on Friday, October 11th.
In honor of this great event we’ve decided to give a lucky fan a pair of tickets to catch the show for free. Yeah totally free, just answer one simple question. In 2011, Ra Ra Riot’s song “Boy” was featured in a commercial for Honda Civic. In the comment section below we want to know, what’s the best song you’ve discovered via a television commercial? Let us start things off. We’re going with Röyksopp – “Remind Me,” from that great Geico commercial back in 2006. Now it’s your turn. Rest of you kids looking to play it safe and scoop up tickets right away can do so here.
