Real Estate at Bomb Fest 2011 (more by Eric M Townsend)
Real Estate

Congrats to Real Estate (and new live drummer Jackson Pollis), as well as offshoots Ducktails (Real Estate's Matthew Mondanile) and Alex Bleeker and the Freaks, who have all signed to Domino! The label will release the forthcoming Real Estate LP, currently in the throes of production, in October. Details are forthcoming. Meanwhile some new live shows were announced.

With the heat starting to crank up even though its only early June, there may be some reconsideration regarding show choices based on venue coolness and comfort. We already knew that The Feelies will play Maxwell's three times in early July in addition to their FREE outdoor appearance at Prospect Park with Times New Viking and Real Estate. But now comes word that Real Estate has hopped on the air-conditioning train too, by adding a show at Maxwell's on July 24th (the day after the Prospect Park show). Tickets for Real Estate are on sale, and Feelies tix are all still available too: July 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

The Maxwell's show, like most of Real Estate's July dates, will be with Dent May. They are all listed below.

Both Real Estate and Ducktails will also hit the Woodsist Festival in Big Sur on July 30th and 31st, where they'll meet up with Woods, Sic Alps (new/old drummer Ty Segall included), The Fresh & Onlys, Woods/Fresh & Onlys Big Band, and many others over the two days. Individual day tickets are still available.

Full Woodsist lineup, some videos and all dates, below...

Bill Callahan is playing JB's (Philly) on July 9th. Real Estate added to that bill or just a typo?

Sell outs.

Jeremy Earl from Woods and his Woodist label literally lost 90% of their roster.

why did they kick out etienne? always thought they all get along well

At first read I thought this was humor.
Band People - y'all really need to get better names. Go to the library and look at the back pages of the Voice from the 80's (before it was all hootchie ads).
C'mon guys, how about a band name that's not already the name of a Disney franchise or stuffed animal?

Woodsist just tweeted "poached." I wonder if it was in reference to this.

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2011 3:56 PM

whatever, woodsist has screwed over plenty of their "less popular" acts

what happened to their old drummer?

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2011 5:23 PM

I'm not a hater and a snark, but I saw Real Estate open for Deerhunter last summer, and the music was so incredibly normal sounding, in a bland, not-even-there sort of way. No substance, no superficiality. Does it even exist?

@2:33, that is the most accurate description of real estate that i have ever heard

Real Estate is simply terrible.

The bass player should eat less fried food and practice his scales more. What a fat sweaty piece of shit
