UPDATE: This contest is now closed.

If you’re a regular reader of Ca Va Cool, by now you’re well aware that we absolutely love the Rural Alberta Advantage. We followed them back when they were “Canada’s best unsigned band” and caught up with them again in July for an interview at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto when they were newly-signed and the most talked about band in the Canadian indie scene. Well, now they’re back! The Rural Alberta Advantage will begin their Fall Canadian tour this Wednesday, November 11.

In order to celebrate their return, the fine people at New Prey have given us two passes for their show at Lee’s Palace in Toronto on November 20 and a signed copy of their debut album, Hometowns. To enter to win the RAA prize pack, send an email to contests@cavacool.com with “The Ballad of the RAA” in the subject line and your full name in the body of the email. This contest closes on November 18 at midnight. Good luck!
