Before hitting the road as a teenager and busking for a living, Alynda Segarra was intimately familiar with the streets of the Bronx, where she was born and raised. The talented singer-songwriter leaned into the Americana scene, releasing five albums of bluesy, jazzy neo-doo-wop with a Gillian Welch-meets-Patsy-Cline timelessness that feels more authentic than derivative, if a little studious. Segarra gets back to her Puerto Rican roots on 2017’s The Navigator (ATO Records), a return home that is conceived as a concept album around an alter ego named Navita Milagros Negrón, in which she honors her community and ancestors. Hurray for the Riff Raff plays at Meow Wolf (1352 Rufina Circle, 505-395-6369) on Tuesday, June 6, at 7 p.m. with opening band Making Movies. Tickets to the 21-and-over show are $16 in advance and $19 at the door; $1 of every ticket benefits Mijente, a national Latino/a social justice network. Visit www.meowwolf.com.
