As proof that all we want is for you to be happy, The Brooklyn Brewery’s free live music series continues at Brooklyn Bowl on December 19. This is the last LOCAL x LOCAL of 2010, featuring music from Real Estate, chips and artisanal salsa from The Brooklyn Salsa Company, and $4 Brooklyn Lager. So come on by. Your ears and mouth will be thanking you for days.
From Brooklyn Bowl:
Real Estate were born in the depths of one New Jersey summer. Frontman Martin Courtney had just returned home to his native Ridgewood from college in Washington State, a few fresh songs in his pockets. He’d been playing music with bassist Alex Bleeker and guitarist Matthew Mondanile since high school in various forms, even covering Weezer and the Strokes records from tip to tail. But during the summer of 2008, Real Estate didn’t get nostalgic for just their specific suburban nights, crushes, or favorite bands as teens– they fashioned a tin can-and-string to memories more universal. Their self-titled debut LP is a collection of those first underwater pop songs and onward, 7″ cuts and mpfrees that have been backstroking their way across the Web and into lo-fi nerdpiles. Over the past year, many of these songs have soundtracked a time when it feels like every kid in or just out of college seems to be handcrafting/clamoring for music that shuttles us back to a time before career choices, adult responsibility, and this recession.Back to all blog posts
