Real Estate has garnered a good bit of attention with their sophomore album, Days, so I was excited to finally catch them playing here in D.C. They seemingly come through town every few months but for some reason our schedules have never synced up and their headlining show at the Black cat was my live introduction to the band.

The band’s sound is very laid back, a perfect soundtrack for summer evenings on your front porch. I was struck by how tight the band is. Their lazy sound would seem to lend itself to a very loose live show but the band was very locked in and sounded great.
