R.I.P John Pike
We recently received some upsetting news about John Pike, drummer for the Syracuse septet Ra Ra Riot. After disapearing Friday night after the band's show at the Living Room in Providence, R.I., John's body was found in the ocean near Fairhaven, Mass. Ra Ra Riot was one of the first bands we featured on our site. Their three song demo has been one of my favorite listens for almost a year, partly because of the ferocious enegry of Pike's drumming. John will be seriously missed. Our deepest regards to the Ra Ra and Pike families as they struggle to cope with this tragedy.
