NOISE 101: Rah Rah comes to Bella Concert Hall
Regina band takes a break from working on new album
By Kennedy Enns, Arts Editor
Indie rock sweethearts Rah Rah are performing at the Bella Concert Hall Thursday the 22nd, bringing the Calgary folk band The Ashley Hundred, along with them.
The show, presented by Bow Valley Music Club, has brought Rah Rah out of their songwriting recovery. After finishing their six month cross-continental tour – which stopped in various cities across North America, Europe and Japan – the band now comes back to play in Calgary, as a break from working on their next album. This will be the band’s first headlining show in Calgary after almost two years of touring and producing their newest record.
Rah Rah is excited to finally offer fans a “deeper cut” and a more in-depth performance rather than the opening slots they have previously been playing in Calgary. Their last studio album, Vessels left both fans and critics grooving to some of their dance-pop inspired singles as well as enjoying their more folky ballads. After the 2015 release of Vessels they have already started work on their next album. While still in the early stages, they’re putting a strong focus on songwriting and hope to make their latest release their best yet.
The set for this show has been refined over the course of their tour and vocalist and guitarist for the band, Marshall Burns promises to “make a night of it.” With a high energy and entertaining live show filled with both fan favorites and new songs, he hopes everyone in attendance can leave with “a strong connection to the music.”
Rah Rah play the Bella Concert Hall on campus, Thursday Sept. 22. Tickets are available online and at the doors, $15 for students, $21 for general admission.
