In a sea of internet sensations, The Rural Alberta Advantage definitely hold their own. This Toronto trio caught a much deserved break when online music retailer eMusic declared their 2008 debut Hometown the album of the month. After intensive touring, 2009's SXSW showcased the trio alongside other anticipated bands and brought a buzz that earned the trio a slot on Saddle Creek Record's roster. With exhilarating guitar lines, intricate percussion, and sincere vocals these indie rockers are a talent to be reckoned with.

Songs performed: "Stamp," "Muscle Relaxants," and "Two Lovers."
