So what exactly is the advantage to growing up in rural Alberta? Besides living in the midst of some breathtaking scenery, for singer/guitarist Nils Edenloff, it would seem that it’s the ability to craft intensely beautiful folk-influenced indie rock songs. His band, The Rural Alberta Advantage, exploded onto the indie scene only recently but they’re quickly proving to be one of the most buzz-worthy new groups around. Madison music lovers will be lucky enough to get a taste of their addictive Canadian-flavored sound this Sunday, June 21st at the High Noon Saloon. Read on to learn more about this talented trio and find out how you could win a pair of tickets to the show.

Next Friday Madison will be treated to the devastatingly hip retro sounds of one of the Midwest’s greatest cover bands. Described as “combining girl-group hooks and harmonies with high-octane, Motor City garage rock, the Detroit Cobras conjure the 1960s era of Top 40 AM radio and vinyl 45s…singer Rachel Nagy has attitude to burn and the mixed-gender band plays with plenty of rough-hewn energy.” (Amazon.com) We’ve got the full story below, plus free mp3 downloads and a chance to win tickets to their show.
