Toronto six-piece, Austra play the El Rey Theatre on Saturday, September 15, a stop on their September tour. The band’s 2011 release Feel It Break (Domino Records/Paper Bag Records) rocks and easily found its way onto the Grimy Goods Best Albums of 2011 list. Vocalist/songwriter Katie Stelmanis’ classical roots uplift the indie-electronic group’s new-wave sound, making it both hauntingly gorgeous and danceable. Nightmare Fortress, Vice Device and Bennett Kogon (Origami Vinyl/KXLU) support.
