Well, this show is already sold out, but can that really come as a surprise? The lineup is impeccably tiered: the much-acclaimed headliner Girls, who are still rather hot off their release second full length which ended up on many best of 2011 lists, preceded by quickly rising Real Estate, who are hard to google but easy on the ears, and up and coming opener King Krule, the deep-voiced crooner from south east London. Take in his accent and minimalist beats on “The Noose of Jah City”
Real Estate has already been previewed, reviewed live, and most recently, their latest LP, Days, was reviewed by our Katrina Nattress, who concluded that “Courtney’s soothing voice and rhythmic chord strums paired with lead guitarist Matt Mondanile’s shimmering, jangly riffs, create a warmth needed on those cool, fall evenings or brisk autumn car drives.” Well, since tonight promises to be one of the coldest nights yet in NYC, that warmth will definitely be put to the test. With King Krule breaking the ice first and Girls taking you into the early morning hours after, this show has to be one of the better reasons to brave through it all.
Again, this show is sold out, but if you managed to score tix, doors are at 7pm at the giant warehouse of a venue that is Terminal 5.
