It’s fun going into a show with no expectations. That’s what happened Friday, October 17 when I went to go photograph The Rural Alberta Advantage. I had only listened to a couple of their songs, as I was only recently introduced to them by a girl that I like and she was going to the show. So, my nautral reaction was to go with her and I figured at the very least I would come out of it with a few good photos, and perhaps impress her with my camera skills and awkward dancing in a very crowded room at the same time in the hopes she’d want to see me again. I was blown away. They elated the room and created a fan in me. Without research, I couldn’t name a single song or album title to save my life. Thank God for Spotify, where I will begin to do diligent listening in anticipation to the next time they come around as I will be sure not to miss them. And yes, I will be seeing the girl again as she is all the more cooler for introducing me to a such a stellar band.
