Already making plans for your post Valentine's Day romantic void recovery? If you're boycotting going out tomorrow to save having romance shoved in your face, consider heading up to Alberta St. Pub on Wednesday where a little bit of folk could sooth your lovelorn soul.
Singer/songwriter Chris Miller pops back up into hearts intermittently as Green Hills Alone, sharing what has been so delightfully described as "California coffee shop acoustic." Moody and not too twangy, Green Hills Alone will bring more of grey folk feel to the night.
In that same vein, Kelly Blair Bauman's last release, 2009's Gomorrah, was cathartic folk if we've ever heard it. More personal than his time spent with Cali bands Deathstar and the North Magnetic, Bauman's solo work intimately shows him coming into his own on his own - a feeling those who are recently single may be discovering about themselves as well.
Ending a brighter, powerpop side of folk, Maurice and the Stiff Sisters will shed a little bit of upbeat light to the night. Despite certain song titles like "Unlucky In Love," the undeniable groovy beat and cheerful use of horns take away any sadness.
