Hurray for the Riff Raff found themselves back at Saturn Birmingham in Birmingham, Alabama on May 4th for a headlining performance. Alynda Segarra and the rest of the band was in town as part of the tour to support their latest album, "The Navigator", a concept album Segarra devloped to explore her past. The band was met and welcomed by a strong and supportive audience that thoroughly dug the sounds that filled the venue.
I was glad I got to photograph this performance as a supporting set by the band in the winter of 2014 was the last time I saw them live. This most recent performance, to my delight, was incredibly tight and top notch. The band sounded fantastic and the instrumental work provided a great compliment to Segarra's lyrical output. Segarra really does excel as a lead performer and has the commanding stage presence required to to be highly effective in that role. She and the rest of the band took a risk with "The Navigator", and it is paying off quite nicely for them.
