When having to imagine all of the best artists to co-tour with, touring with Tricky is “seriously, an honor,” says Terra Lopez, lead singer of Sacramento-based band Rituals of Mine (f.k.a. Sister Crayon) during their opening act at Underground Arts for the Bristol-based heavy-bass-heart-of-darkness. A heckler in the crowd yells,”We Love Tricky, and we love you!” to which Terra may or may not have heard, albeit was able to evoke a cathartic sway in her audience.
Rituals of Mine’s tour kicked off in California on October 21st and ran through the month hitting most major cities, including Philadelphia. During Lopez’s performance, she expressed a deep gratitude for the energy given by the evening’s crowd. “It’s like therapy being up here,” she told them, “and it’s definitely a bonus sharing this energy with you.”
Rituals of Mine released their debut album Devoted back in September of this year via Warner Brothers Records, shortly after changing their name from their previous name, Sister Crayon. Having just finished a tour with Deftones and a national tour with The Album Leaf, the three piece combines dark trip-hop with an intense and passionate live performance.
