Tonight In Phoenix: Jenny Lewis @ Marquee Theatre, Rural Alberta Advantage @ Modified Arts

Two excellent shows to choose from tonight in Phoenix.

First up is Jenny Lewis playing at Marquee Theatre in Tempe. As we mentioned earlier this week, we were a little disapointed with Lewis' last album Acid Tongue but her album before that Rabbit Fur Coat is a tough act to follow. I spent the better part of 2006 listening to that album and count as one of my favorite albums of all time. Heartless Bastards open up the show.

Canadian indie rockers The Rurual Alberta Advantage will be playing their latest album Hometowns at Modified Arts. The album was originally released independently in 2008 to critical acclaim and finally got a proper release after the band signed with Saddle Creek earlier this year. Local favorites Yellow Minute and Really Big Birds open the show.
