Tyagaraja Interview with Pretty Riot

Let me tell you this. If you haven’t seen a Tyagaraja show get ready to see something different and musically stimulating. This is a band with honest, undeniable talent and strong vocals. I’m going to go a little free spirit on you real quick; you can feel the positivity in the air at a Tyagaraja show.

As the crowds started to gather on the slope facing the main stage, claiming beach toweled territory like conquistadors, you start to realize that it’s pretty easy to be a fan of the Houston “underdogs” like Sideshow Tramps and Tyagaraja. Knowing that these bands, given a little bit of luck and exposure that all groups need, could easily be usurping the national acts is even more comforting, even if that means you might have to sacrifice a better spot on the lawn…
