One of the most exciting bands to emerge from the US in some time, PARQUET COURTS play Whelan’s on October 14th. Tickets priced at €16.50 including booking fee go on sale tomorrow morning at 9am from Ticketmaster.
Parquet Courts are an American punk rock band based in Brooklyn, New York.
The band played regularly in the greater New York area and released its first album, American Specialties, exclusively on cassette in late 2011.
A more widely distributed full-length, Light up Gold, was issued on the Dull Tools label in the summer of 2012, and the band’s first U.S. tour followed by the end of the year.
Light up Gold quickly caught on and as a result was reissued on Brooklyn label What’s Yr Rupture in early 2013 to wider distribution.
The record was named number 3 in Time Out’s roundup of the best albums of the year so far:
“Remember the joy of hearing the Strokes ‘This is it’ for the first time? Well, the first chords of these fellow New Yorkers’ debut album left us as shivery with excitement. Parquet courts have got the up all night energy and ear worm guitar riffs of their NYC predecessors but with more of that long-absent quality: Punk Spirit. The 4 piece represent the new sound of Rock N Roll and they couldn’t care less…which is how things should be.” Johnny Ensall – Time Out Magazine
Indie Rock Band Parquet Courts will play Electric Picnic on Saturday 31 August, and then Whelan’s on October 14th.
