This show WILL sell out...
The Rural Alberta Advantage is playing a one-off show at Mercury Lounge next Wednesday, Jan. 12th, prior to their new disc, Departing, coming out in March (on Saddle Creek). On this new disc, the band further refines the exuberant guitar work; everything-on-the-table singing; songwriting full of conviction and detail; and majestic, keyboard-sprinkled arrangements that have won them so much critical acclaim. Departing strings together themes of small towns, Canadian fall and winter, break ups, and redemption and serves as a companion piece to their debut album Hometowns. Highlights include the affecting "North Star," the stark regret of "Tornado," and the storming, percussive surge of "Stamp," all of which vividly set the scene.
The Rural Alberta Advantage are sharing the bill with Paul Collins' (Beirut) new project Soft Landing. This is an early show with Soft Landing going on at 6:30PM and The Rural Alberta Advantage playing at 7:30PM. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 DOS.
