The Working Effective works its folk-rock magic

Local folk-rock enthusiasts abandoned their usual Wednesday night antics this past week to gather at The Southern for an evening full of wistful melodies, vibrant chords and the occasional charming pun by indie-folk band The Working Effective.The crowd convened in the friendly café to laugh over drinks and joke about leather shoes and indie coffee shops.

There are a lot of alternative bands in which a guy and girl sing in unison. Groups like The Young Evils, Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Chamber Band and Broods all make use of this style to some extent.The Vaselines, however, have been making jangly dual-vocalist alternative music since 1986.
