Parquet Courts - Pretty Machines


The Parquet Courts play the Wonder Ballroom with opener Woolen Men on Wednesday, February 24th - a great way to recover from awkward Hallmark Card holidays if you're still needing to blow off some steam. Doors open at 7:30 and tickets start at $15 for this all ages show. Get your tickets here.

 We are told:

Though made up of Texan transplants, Parquet Courts are a New York band. Throw out the countless shallow Brooklyn bands of the blasé 2000’s: Light Up Gold is a conscious effort to draw from the rich culture of the city - the bands like Sonic Youth, Bob Dylan, and the Velvet Underground that are not from New York, but of it. A panoramic landscape of dilapidated corner-stores and crowded apartments is superimposed over bare-bones Americana, leaving little room for romance or sentiment. It’s punk, it’s American, it’s New York… it’s the color of something you were looking for.
