Parquet Courts

Texas-via-New York rock n roll combo. Remind us a little of Eddy Current at times.

They remind other people of different bands. Stephen Malkmus: “Those guys are cool. I was in this hamburger place the other day in Portland – they were playing the Parquet Courts’ record and I thought it was Pavement.”

They remind Uncle Doug of why he likes music and running a music festival. “Can we get Parquet Courts?” he asked. Unlike me, he’s not given to hyperbole, “they’re pretty solid” he says, and by that he means they are utterly fantastic. So yes, honeybun, as a fantastic stroke of fate would have it, we can. Late on Sunday night, before the kings of disco.

Please be careful of Uncle Doug up the front, he’s not as strong as he used to be.
