Martin Courtney @ The Bishop 2/5
If every weekend you find yourself at the crossroads between relaxing or going out, this Friday night at The Bishop you can give into both. Real Estate frontman Martin Courtney will be performing a soft and sunny psychedelic set perfect for dancing or just hanging out.
Joining Courtney is power-pop group EZTV and Bloomington’s alternative rocker Mike Adams At His Honest Weight. The show is set to begin at 8:30 p.m., and tickets can be purchased for $12 in advanced or $14 at the door, ages 18+.
Courtney’s most recent solo project, “Many Moons”, came in October 2015, about a year and a half after Real Estate’s third album, “Atlas”. Wanting to move away from the abstract music made with Real Estate, Courtney’s “Many Moons” turned into “an album that feels lush and calm, but with a newfound sonic clarity.” The introspective collection of songs was greatly inspired by Courtney’s transition into fatherhood and balancing his new role while on the road.
The nostalgia and beauty of Marvin Courtney’s sound is sure to be the perfect backdrop for any type of Friday night and a show you don’t want to miss.
