the rural alberta advantage played millennium park tonight, and they were sublime, interjecting stories of alberta childhoods into their halfway between the best parts of neutral milk hotel and the decemberists indie/folk rock. they played the song in the video above, and it made my heart melt, and i still feel shook sitting here, in my room.
they are playing schuba's on september 26th. if you'd like to make it a charming canadian weekend, you can catch the weakerthans and rock plaza central the night before at the double door. i will be at both shows. come say hello.
