Mini have teamed up with RCD LBL to present the Normal Crashing Tour, which brings a different band to a secret location in different US cities. The "tour" began in Chicago on Monday (12/3) with Twin Shadow and comes to Williamsburg, Brooklyn this Friday (12/7) at 5:30 for a free Real Estate show in a TBA location. More info on that show at the facebook event but RSVP is not required. The "tour" will also come to Austin and LA soon. Stay tuned.
In related news, Real Estate member Alex Bleeker (and The Freaks) will open the third of three shows in Deer Tick's upcoming Brooklyn Bowl residency, where Deer Tick will be performing an album and an EP in full each night. Alex is on board for the December 19 show where Deer Tick is doing Divine Providence and the Tim EP. Ian O'Neil of Deer Tick is also playing an opening set. Tickets for that show are still available, or you can also pick up a three night pass, which gains you access to all three shows, the first of which is tonight (12/5).
As mentioned, the other Real Estate side project Ducktails (led by Matt Mondanile) will play a guest-filled record release show for their new album, The Flower Lane, on January 23 at Le Poisson Rouge (tickets). Matt just dropped a new song off that album, "Letter of Intent," which features Jessa Farkas (of Future Shuttle) on vocals, Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never, Ford & Lopatin) on synth, and Joel Ford (Airbird, Ford & Lopatin) on bass. You can stream that song below. Jessa and Joel are both on board for the release show at LPR and it wouldn't be a surprise if Oneohtrix Point Never, who just played MoMA PS1 with Ducktails, shows up too.
