Ravi Shavi kick out the jams

By CHRIS CONTI  |  January 22, 2013

"Some of the songs on the new album had been written over the past couple of years that I brought to the table, but this new lineup has resulted in a much more collaborative process," Rashid said, as the foursome prep brand-new songs for an EP to be recorded later this year, as well as a regional tour of the East Coast in April.

"Their sound is a mix of new wave, punk, and old-school rock and roll, but with a modern twist" commended Roz Raskin, head honcho of the Rice Cakes.

"We're so stoked to be playing with the Ravi Shavi boys," she told me. "They always bring the party and I think our followers who haven't seen Ravi Shavi are gonna dig it hard."

Pick up Ravi Shavi's new disc at the show this weekend or download a copy at iTunes and Spotify.
