If you’ve been reading this blog, you know my love of Rural Alberta Advantage is nothing new. In fact, they released one of my favorite albums of 2008 and I saw them twice at SxSW, including an incredible, breath-taking show at Central Presbyterian. They produce driving, often-raw indie folk about, well, Alberta. Mark my word, they will put on a good show.
Okay put out a really intriguing album with last year’s Huggable Dust. Broadly folk music, but with some experimental and freak folk elements, it’s a good listen. When I saw them at the Bottom of the Hill last year, I enjoyed their set.
Okay – Natural (mp3)
Half-handed Cloud is a band I’ve been following for quite a while, since I saw him open for Sufjan years ago. With folk-pop songs for people with ADD, this will be a fun way to start the set.
So mark your calendars and stay tuned for a ticket give-away and more. Here’s all the info in one place:
