Not the country, although given the weather we’ve been having lately a day (or thirty) on that Caribbean isle would certainly be a treat.

But this gig tonight at the Exchange by the Toronto-based folk/rock artist Alfie Jurvanen (pictured) who goes by the stage name Bahamas should also prove to be a delight. His debut album, Pink Strat was long-listed for the Polaris Prize in 2008 and a second CD is apparently due out shortly.

Backing Bahamas up tonight is Doug Paisley. Tix are $10 adv. For a taste, here’s video of him playing at the Ottawa Folk Festival earlier this summer.
