A heads-up since we didn't get this one in last week's Short List or anything: if your tastes steer clear of Diamanda Galas and/or Cirque du Soleil, but you still want to get out and see something decent, you might head over to Garfield Artworks, where The Rural Alberta Advantage plays. Born of, appropriately, rural Alberta, but now residing in Toronto, the trio is a buzzworthy indie trio with cute, stripped-down songs that range from folky to synthetic-pop-y in nature. The lo-fi vocal harmonies between Nils Edenloff and Amy Cole aren't silky smooth, but have a legitimacy and texture that make them palatable. Check them out on the web here.
