The War on Drugs Welcome Real Estate’s Alex Bleeker
Last night, both The War on Drugs and Real Estate performed sets at Trix in Antwerp, Belgium. Part way through the Drugs set, Real Estate bassist Alex Bleeker emerged on stage wielding a 12-string acoustic guitar for a jam on the Drugs’ song “Brothers” (check out the official video here). Bleeker eluded to the sit-in in a tweet earlier on in the evening, which was confirmed by a picture posted to the Real Estate twitter account. Real Estate head to the Fireworks Festival in Paris, France tonight while The War on Drugs play The Kazimier in Liverpool, UK.
