Parachute at Deluxe in the Old National Center 9/19

Pop-rock band Parachute will be playing the Deluxe at the Old National Center in Indianapolis this Friday. The five-piece will be presenting songs from Losing Sleep, The Way It Was, and their most recent 2013 release, Overnight. Parachute’s unabashedly pop-rock with heavy emphasis on easily repeatable and upbeat choruses. While pop simplicity may not be everyone’s cup of tea, those who enjoy a cup (and everyone does now and again, let’s be honest) will be in for an energetic and true-to-recording performance. Even those who don’t embrace the sweet and lovelorn lyrics may want to give Parachute’s catalogue a second glance as many of their tunes have a relatable moment for anyone who has ever loved anybody. Admittedly, with a playlist that consists of nearly exclusively love songs, the odds that even the most hardened heart would have some resonance with a lyric or two are pretty stacked. If you have any partiality to pop-rock or a clean, strong vocal performance, you’re bound to enjoy Parachute’s show this Friday as they bring their “Meant to Be” tour to Indy with supporting act Matt Wertz. Show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $20.
