Parquet Courts

With roots in Texas and operations in New York, up and coming post-punk band Parquet Courts is covering all the bases.

February 4, 2013 - The group’s first full-length album Light Up Gold is now available everywhere from Calgary to Yokohama, and the refreshingly raw ‘70s punk vibes throughout the record have it spreading quickly.

The band’s two main songwriters and lead vocalists, Austin Brown and Andrew Savage, met while meeting at Savage’s record-listening club while attending the University of North Texas in Denton and eventually moved to New York City, joining up with Savage’s brother Max and bassist Sean Yeaton. Their EP American Specialties dropped in 2011, preceding the release of Light Up Gold in August 2012.

Parquet Courts are currently touring the country, with stops along the east coast this month, including Connecticut College in New London, CT on 2/15, Voyeur Night Club, Philadelphia, PA on 2/16, and 2/22 at The Black Cat in Washington, DC.
