Saturday To-Do: Dala

Dala plays Argenta Community Theater Saturday night.
  • Dala plays Argenta Community Theater Saturday night.

UPDATE: We just got word that this show has been cancelled because of a scheduling conflict. The Walton Arts Center performances on Friday are still on, though, so if you want to see Dala, head on up The Hill.

DALA
7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Argenta Community Theater. $30-$40.

From the Great White North comes Dala, made up of longtime friends Sheila Carabine and Amanda Walther. Over the last six years, they've released a clutch of albums featuring mostly originals peppered with occasional covers by such folk as Neil Young and Donovan.

The two play dreamy, atmospheric folk-pop with beautifully soothing harmonies and no rough edges whatsoever. So if that sounds like your jam, check 'em out. Argenta Community Theater will be a great venue for a band like Dala.

But please, don't ask them about hockey or Molson or poutine or SCTV or whether their families had pet polar bears when they were growing up. They probably don't want to talk about that stuff, even though we all want to hear about it.

If you're up northwesterly, Dala plays Walton Arts Center Friday night at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., $10-$35.
