TVD Ticket Giveaway: The Rural Alberta Advantage in the city and venue of your choice

We’ve spent a considerable amount of time with The Rural Alberta Advantage over the past few weeks in celebration of their brand new, and dare we say marvelous release, Mended with Gold, in stores now on Saddle Creek Records.

“I still remember opening the first box of vinyl that we received from Saddle Creek. We were playing a show in Minneapolis at the 7th Street Entry. There was something about seeing Hometowns on vinyl for the first time, holding onto a tangible product that was in a way a summation of every show, practice, and recording session that we’d done up to that point that made you feel like you’d actually created something.

When you hold something like that for the very first time, you actually feel like you’ve maybe done something special,” the band’s Nils Edenloff wrote in last September’s First Date feature.

Last week we offered you a unique opportunity to get your hands on some unique TRAA swag with the purchase of the exclusive indie record store vinyl edition of Mended With Gold, which just so happens to be flecked with gold among the clear vinyl. (That’s it above in all its gilded glory.) Just flash The Vinyl District Record Store Locator App upon purchase, and participating shops will bestow upon you some unique TRAA swag. (That list of participating shops is right here.)

Not to be outdone, we have one more unique opportunity—to catch The Rural Alberta Advantage live and on the road in support of the new release—and you get to pick the exact city and venue of your choice to take it all in.
