We’ve chronicled the rise of Hurray For The Riff Raff quite often over the last few years — so often that their appearance at Mountain Jam isn’t even the first festival appearance we’ve captured. Last year at the XPontential Fest, HFTRR appeared on the biggest stage we had seen them play yet and slayed the huge crowd. The experience at the Jam this year was quite similar, except that the band was placed higher in the bill right before the headliner Alabama Shakes (recording here). Though it was a tough spot, as the crowd seemed to be gravitating to the main stage, HFTRR played a tight hour-long set at the west stage. Opening with a “mountain” song in tribute to the Fest, the band worked through a familiar set of songs with six songs from last year’s career-changing success Small Town Heroes, a couple of older songs, and one brand new one that we first heard at the Bowery back in April.

Hurray For The Riff Raff performed at Bonnaroo this weekend, and will continue to play at several Festivals and other selected dates throughout the Summer.

I recorded this set with Neumann large diaphragm cardiods from our section up on the hill. There was some wind during this set, but the overall quality is quite good. Enjoy!
