There is a magical place in London where you can see bands play for the price of an album, a t-shirt and showing up on time (or begging the bouncer to let you in. Good luck with that.) The gigs there are so small you may even get to talk to the band after.
That is where I saw the band Real Estate for the second time.
When I first saw them in Jericho Tavern in Oxford almost two years ago it was their first time in the UK and they were very young, bright-eyed and polite, and they sounded great.
They sounded even better the second time. (They were still very young and very nice.)
Of course I’m a big fan of surf, rock music and the beach, so I might be biased.
I sometimes put their song Beach Comber on repeat and listen to it as I write.
