You know how you were always convinced your Mom would totally be into some of the indie stuff you listen to if only it came on her radio station? Well, pretty great band Real Estate will make a very literal attempt to prove that tonight in what is surely also their most literal gig to date.
Why all the literalness? Real Estate is playing singer Martin Courtney's Mom's holiday party tonight. And yes, she in fact works at a real estate office in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey. Whether or not they were supposed to tell all of you fine folks will probably be up for debate at the collective Gateway Realtors hangover brunch on Friday afternoon, but who has time for questions like these. The show starts at 7 or 8, and the boys having even been so kind as to give you directions. We imagine there to be lots of Colby Jack cheese trays, and you just don't see that enough at most Todd P venues, so we're greeting this as an open change of pace. We also recently heard a drunk girl at a bar say that Hoboken is the new Manhattan, and while we're skeptical, we figure this wouldn't be a bad market to get in on. Maybe Martin's mom can help with that! Check out the "invite" after the hop.
