Princeton / Ra Ra Riot / Maps and Atlases @ Varsity 9/17/09

 Once again another great triple bill at the Varsity Theater. Princeton lead off the night using members of Ra Ra Riot to help out in their set. These guys from Eagle Rock, California remind me a bit of Belle and Sebastian. Up-tempo indie rockers "Maps and Atlases", followed. Heavy drums with a very experimental sound make up the Chicago band. Led by Dave Davison his strong voice draws comparisons to Tunde Adebimpe(TV on the Radio) and has the look of The Doors with the long hair.
Headlining the night was the very popular Ra Ra Riot. Although not to a sold out crowd which was a big surprise. Still playing tracks from their debut album "The Rhumb Line" this band is always a blast to see live.
