The Rural Alberta Advantage played Mercury Lounge in NYC (pics & setlist)

by Jacob Blickenstaff

The Rural Alberta Advantage

The Rural Alberta Advantage played to a sold-out crowd at the Mercury Lounge on Wednesday January 13th. The band previewed their upcoming album, Departing in its entirety (out March 1st on Saddle-Creek Records), playing each side of the new album as a mini-set with songs from ‘Hometown’ at the beginning, middle and end of the performance. The band ended the evening with the appropriate ‘Good Night’, snaking their way into the audience to sing from the benches along the wall. Soft Landing opened.

If you missed it, the band heads back out on tour in March. Tickets are still on sale for the shows at Bowery Ballroom on March 10 and Knitting Factory on March 12th.
