Alynda Lee Segarra of Hurray for the Riff Raff returns to New Orleans for a concert benefiting relief efforts following August's devastating floods. Sam Doores of honky-tonk ensemble The Deslondes joins the bill at First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans (5401 Claiborne Ave.) at 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 4.

Tickets are $10, and proceeds benefit the United Way of Southeast Louisiana.

Hurray for the Riff Raff's forthcoming album The Navigator — its first following the landmark 2014 release Small Town Heroes on ATO Records — is tentatively due in early 2017. Segarra says it's a concept album largely about gentrification and its protagonist's navigation of "her gender identity, her sexual identity, class, and race and culture and everything" as her community begins to disappear.
