Parquet Courts @ The Bishop 4/19
Fresh off the release of their newest record, Human Performance, Parquet Courts will take the Bishop stage Tuesday night. The New York rockers, who formed in 2010, have released four full lengths and two EPs. Human Performance is buzzing with heavy guitar riffs and driving vocals, but also incorporates a stronger emphasis on lyricism. With hints of Pavement (“Steady on My Mind”) and The Velvet Underground (album close “It’s Gonna Happen), the record solidifies Parquet Courts spot in the indie rock timeline. They’re also making their way out to festivals this summer, with slots lined up up at Shaky Knees festival in May and Primavera Sound festival in June.
Opening up is Soda, whose EP Without a Head was released earlier this year. The show is 18+, and doors open at 8 p.m. and the show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 pre-sale, or available for $17 at the door.
