In February, Real Estate opened for The War on Drugs in Antwerp, Belgium. Partway through War on Drugs’ set, Real Estate bassist Alex Bleeker emerged to play 12-string acoustic guitar on “Brothers.” Earlier this week, the Real Estate co-founder found himself in Los Angeles between Real Estate tours. War on Drugs happened to have a show scheduled at the LA club The Avalon and recruited Bleeker to play guitar. This time Bleeker used Adam Granduciel’s prized Gibson reverse Firebird guitar. War on Drugs will appear in St. Louis, MO tomorrow while Real Estate will kick off a tour at Philadelphia’s First Unitarian Church on Tuesday.
