CLOSED: Congratulations to Nate, the winner of our Real Estate giveaway! Have a great show!!
Hailing from Ridgewood, NJ, the band Real Estate is hitting the stage at The Red Palace on Sunday night and we want YOU to be there!
Having toured extensively over the past year, even playing the Pitchfork festival in 2010, this 4 piece is finally bringing their unique brand of surfed up rock that is racking up acclaim all across the country to DC. But don't take my word for it. Check out the bands press release as well as a video for the song "Careless" below.
Real Estate waft in on vibes of hazy summers past. The New Jersey quartet of Martin Courtney IV, Matthew Mondanile III, Etienne Pierre Duguay and Alex Bleeker cut the sleeves short and the pop smooth to shade you from the midday heat. Every song works its way to that part of your consciousness that reveled in the fleeting waves of freedom that eked in once classes broke and the sun lingered a little longer over suburban roofs. And with three quarters of the band holding down Garden State roots its no surprise that a bit of Jersey indie-pop heritage sneaks its way into their sound, lifting the most sun streaked moments from The Feelies and Yo La Tengo and filtering them through the kaleidoscope of memories aimless drives through parched neighborhood streets.
Interested NOW? All you have to do to win is leave a comment with a valid email address below and your entered! We'll announce the winner Sunday morning and then see everyone Sunday night at the show.
Free rock is pretty cool, ain't it?
