Real Estate+Kurt Vile

From Bruce Springsteen to Zach Braff, true artists cull inspiration from the majestic backdrop of the Garden State. Popular lo-fi outfit Real Estate (named for frontman Martin Courtney's backup career) mines the Jersey Shore in their elegantly layered guitar blasts. More highlander than highwayman, solo artist Kurt Vile, appearing with a full band for the first time, goes for the erratic approach. (Just compare the Iron Maiden-esque stoner-metal-ode "Hunchback" to the Krautrock sax solos of "Freak Train.") Really, it's the show of the summer, but who wants to say that it in early July? With Big Troubles.
Fri., July 9, 7:30 p.m., 2010
