Any RAQ fans in the room?

My experience with this band has been insanely limited so I’m always eager to hear what other fans think. Are these guys too jambandy for me? How’s their latest studio effort? Do they sound too much like Phish?

These are all gripes I’ve heard from the community or read on message boards, so when I got an email from their road manager letting me know that they were headed out on the road, I thought I’d ask the readers myself…

While I wait for some responses to such an easy Thursday morning question, sit back and enjoy one of their “Dick in the Box”-like tracks from their album release back in 2003 (they better have played this last night, too).

Tour dates after the jump and let us know what you think. The band will be watching.
