Alex Bleeker and The Freaks - unknown

Full review to follow. There was a time when The Grateful Dead were uncool. Real Estate's Alex Bleeker proves that time is gone, with his widdly-wah mellow jams. Touchstones included covers of of Neil Young's "Helpless" and The Rolling Stones' "Sweet Virginia", and the set was bookened by the lengthy near-instrumental jams that did the same on his 2009 self-titled album. Along the way there was also room for a bunch of new material that'll probably be bound for the follow-up.

* "Don't Look Back On Me Now"? "Don't Look Down Upon Me"? Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
