Rural Alberta Advantage

The Quad: I have to say, I’ve been to a bunch of shows here, and this is definitely one of the most engaged crowds I’ve seen.

Nils: That’s definitely good to hear.

Paul: The people who come to our shows are super nice.

The Quad: It seems like your fans are really nice, for lack of a better word.

Nils: It’s funny ’cause some people are like, ‘oh, nice Canadians, do you get beat up by Americans when you go there?’ It’s like, oh, not most of the time, we have nice friends that come out, nice audience members. I guess we don’t court danger too well as a band. (Laughs).

The Rural Alberta Advantage are now touring their way through America, to SXSW (where they’ll play a BrooklynVegan day party at Swan Dive at 2pm on Thursday). On Thursday night they and their tour-mates Pepper Rabbit, with help from locals the Loom, played a sold out Bowery Ballroom in Manhattan. Tonight (Saturday, 3/12) they play another sold out NYC show with the same lineup at Knitting Factory.
