New Jersey real estate may have something to do with Hoboken icon, Maxwell's, closing for good tomorrow, but Real Estate (from New Jersey) were welcomed with open arms last night (7/29) for the venue's third-to-last show ever. In reciprocation, the band told the crowd they have "nothing but love for the Tri state area." Singer Martin Courtney also told the crowd they came to see shows when they were in high school.
Real Estate also blessed the Maxwell's crowd with a whopping nine new songs, making up the bulk of their set and offering a preview to their new album which they've been working on in Chicago this summer. In addition to new songs (and a few favorites like "Beachcomber"), The Feelies' Glenn Mercer joined the band (a role reversal from Independence Day Weekend) for two Feelies songs, "Only Life" and "The High Road."
Only two nights at Maxwell's left. Tonight is Lee Ranaldo & The Dust, and tomorrow is the free closing block party with The Bongos and more. Real Estate setlist, plus a little video of "Only Life" with Glenn Mercer, below.
UPDATE: Cassie Ramone opened the show too. Check out a full set of pictures of her, Real Estate, and Glenn Mercer.
