Real Estate: February 21, 2024 Tubby’s

February 27, 2024

It’s been a minute since Real Estate has graced the site but our relationship with the band goes back to their early days playing clubs in Brooklyn. In fact, their label, Domino, released a set recorded by Nyctaper as a bonus LP to their 2011 album, “Days.” All these years later the band is still writing excellent material, still playing great shows and still finding cool ways to engage their audience. 

This show was semi-secret. The band and Tubby’s arranged to not fully announce it until a few days’ prior. They also arranged to break Tubby’s tradition and do no pre-sale tickets and no happy hour prior. It was doors at 7, first come first serve. This was the first time I’ve ever had to wait online to get into Tubby’s. The time spent standing on Broadway offered a fun opportunity for curious locals to ask what was going on, chat with some new friends we met in line and, randomly, say hi to an old friend who happened to be walking by on a date. Don’t ever say music doesn’t bring people together. 

Unsurprisingly, this sold out quickly and it seemed that everyone was fully invested in seeing the band. Once they started almost no one was at the bar and the live room was so packed I couldn’t leave my spot or I would never have made it back to my gear. We suffer for your listening pleasure.  

The band opened with “Something New” from their just released album “Daniel” and the crowd welcomed it in like an old favorite. That continued to play out over the next hour as the band worked through about half new material and half old favorites. Seeing bands in a room this intimate is special and everyone, band and audience, seemed to recognize it. 

Real Estate is about to embark on a massive tour that I’m sure will bring them near you so buy a ticket and have some fun. I sure did. Special thanks to bassist Alex Bleeker for giving me the ok to record and then going ahead and getting a page set up on the Live Music Archive for the band. Hopefully, in the coming weeks, we can get some of the older shows uploaded and get the artist page well populated. 

I recorded this from my regular spot next to the soundboard with my MBHO’s and an excellent board feed curtesy of Tubby’s FOH engineer Will. Enjoy!
