CONTEST – Parquet Courts @ The Horseshoe – July 17, 2013
Kevin PedersenWho: Parquet Courts
What: Texas-by-way-of-New York outfit whose musical DNA threads through Wire-ish post-punk and Pavement-esque abstract college rock for a taut, efficient, and in-your-face sound that’s so indebted to the ’80s and ’90s that it’s utterly 2013.
Why: Their full-length debut Light Up Gold was originally released last Summer, but got a wider release at the start of 2013. Buzz has built accordingly – they apparently had a very impressive SXSW – so of course they’re going to tour.
When: Wednesday, July 17, 2013
Where: The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto (19+)
Who else: They’re here in a co-headline capacity with California’s Woods; local Jennifer Castle opens up for both.
How: Tickets for the show are $15.50 in advance but courtesy of Collective Concerts, I’ve got one pair of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Parquet Courts” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, July 15.
What else: The Georgia Straight, Under The Radar, and The Oakland Press all have features on the band.
