Hurray For The Riff Raff Live In Concert, SXSW 2017

"I'm ready for the world," Alynda Lee Segarra sings in the chorus of the rousing "Hungry Ghost" — and her band's set told that simple truth again and again. In the past seven or eight years, Hurray For The Riff Raff has blossomed slowly but fully, transforming its sound from intense-but-delicate one-woman bedroom recordings to the rip-roaring full-band jams that dominated the group's set at Stubb's BBQ in Austin, Texas. Setlist: 1. Life To Save 2. Nothing's Gonna Change That Girl 3. Hungry Ghost 4. Rican Beach 5. The Navigator 6. Living In The City 7. Fourteen Floors 8. Pa'lante

Lizzo Live In Concert, SXSW 2017

If you've only heard Lizzo's hit "Good As Hell" you might think the Twin Cities singer is a funny and ingratiating but fairly straightforward purveyor of self-affirmation and charismatic confidence. But as her joyful and explosive live show unfolded, complete with the arrival of the ecstatic backup dancers she calls "The Big Girls," it became clear that Lizzo has something more powerful going on: 1. Worship, 2. Phone, 3. Bam Bam, 4. Deep, 5. Drone Bomb Me, 6. Easy Easy, 7. 'Scuse Me, 8. Coconut Oil, 9. Good As Hell
