Real Estate, Twerps, Terry Malts at Dada

Although New Jersey's Real Estate do not possess a great name, the four-piece makes up for it with rock and roll that's engaging and reflective. The band's 2011 sophomore effort, Days, refined their sound just enough to earn them critical acclaim and, like fellow New Jersey outfit The Feelies, Real Estate makes pleasant, jangly rock for nerds. Of course, that doesn't preclude anyone from enjoying the well-manicured delights that are Real Estate's current stock and trade. Melbourne, Australia's Twerps and San Francisco's Terry Malts open.
