Borrowing from an old Beatles song (one that was remade by Pearl Jam), “I’ve got a feeling” about Alberta Cross, one that tells me that they’ve only scratched the surface on the rock behemoth they’ll someday be. To date, they’ve done everything the right way – putting out a great debut full of solid songcrafting and then touring and touring and touring so that people take notice. As you’ll discover in the latest Live at Electraplay session, Alberta Cross has not only performed coast-to-coast as a headlining act, but have also opened for some pretty big names (and a wide musical spectrum at that) in their short time together.
In late August and early September, you can catch Alberta Cross out west with the Dave Matthews Band and Ben Harper. In the meantime, check them out here as they give us a very special and intimate performance.
Here’s the full Vimeo feature with all the performances and interview segments together, and the rest of the chopped-and-condensed, single-song YouTube versions. (Interview by yours truly, filming and editing by Electraplay, animation by Nick Cavalier.) More bands coming very soon.
