Texas-to-Brooklyn transplants Parquet Courts is touring in support of their first album, Light Up Gold. This low-fi indie rock/post-punk
band -- heavily influenced by Pavement, Guided by Voices, Sonic Youth and other alt rock greats -- combines short, catchy tunes and amazingly clever lyrics. Pitchfork and Spin gave the record an 8.0 and NME a 9 (calling it "one of the best debut albums you’ll hear all year"). Parquet Courts is joined by a Roomrunner from Baltimore and Foul Swoops from DC. All for only $12 on a Friday night.
