Real Estate announce May/June tour dates, housing market completely rebounds overnight in response

Real talk, everyone: Following the release of their spectacular, stupendous, colossal 2014 smash-hit of an album Atlas, Real Estate (the band) have officially, emphatically, undeniably, indefatigably announced that, after they finish up a couple Australian shows this month, they’ll be coming back around to North America for a bunch of festival appearances, some headlining gigs, and some bar crawls with their friends in Woods (the “rustic” band) at this year’s Woodsist Festival and Belle and Sebastian (the “Glaswegian” band) at some place called Radio City Music Hall. The bulk of the action is going down this May and June, because that’s when it’s NOT SHITTY AS BALLS OUTSIDE.

Because I know you’re dying to know and can’t be bothered to look it up on the internet that you’re reading this far on: YES, tickets to Woodsist Festival, Sasquatch, and Radio City Music Hall are already on sale. All the other shit goes on sale this coming Friday (Feb 27), with the exception of their NXNE show, which goes on sale Thursday (today).

This is all, of course, great news for anyone who loves Real Estate (the band), but pretty lousy, useless news for anyone who cares about real estate (the thing). It also seems to qualify as fair-to-middling news for people who like Woods — which is probably some people — and Belle and Sebastian — which as far as I can tell from all of the movies I’ve seen is all cool sensitive people everywhere. But yeah, if you’re into buying houses and flipping properties and selling buildings and whatnot more than easy-breezy-beautiful indie rock music, you’re reading the wrong hilarious music magazine. You wanted Rolling Stone.
