It's been a rough but rewarding road for the Syracuse, N.Y., band Ra Ra Riot: In the two years since it formed, the group has endured a grueling tour schedule, inflated expectations from critics and the sudden death of drummer John Pike, one of the band's creative leaders. But Ra Ra Riot emerged from it all this year, wiser and more focused, with a beautifully polished and inspired debut, The Rhumb Line. Hear the group showcase the album in a full concert, webcast live from the Black Cat in Washington, D.C. This performance is followed by an interview with the band and All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen
