Del the Funky Homosapien, Ra Ra Riot and Rogue Wave coming to Riot Room this spring
Lots to look forward to at the Riot Room over the next few months. Monday, Rogue Wave and Ra Ra Riot each announced a new album and tour; yesterday, Del the Funky Homosapien followed suit. All three acts will stop at the Riot Room on separate dates this spring.
Del the Funky Homosapien — Monday, May 2
Underground rapper Del the Funky Homosapien (born Teren Delvon Jones) — cousin to Ice Cube, member of Oakland hip-hop collective Hieroglyphics, frequent Gorillaz collaborator — hasn’t announced a new album, just a tour, but given that his last release was 2014’s Iller Than Most, we have a feeling we’ll hear something new from him soon.
Ra Ra Riot — Wednesday, April 6
On February 19, the Brooklyn five-piece will release Need Your Light, its first album since 2013’s Beta Love. Listen to the brand-new lyric video for “Foreign Lovers” for a taste of the new synth-pop sound the band is mining. Ticket details here.
Rogue Wave — Sunday, May 22
Founding members Zach Rogue and Patrick Spurgeon have produced Rogue Wave’s newest record, Delusions of Grand Fur, themselves. The album is due out April 29. Ticket information can be found here.
