And Stay Awake

By: Laurie Gallardo

And the adventure continues. Although that’s an understatement.

Parquet Courts unleashes brilliant absurdity, revelry, and simultaneously, a kind of…aloofness on their Danger Mouse-produced release, Wide Awake. So, there’s no denying the passion for the music they play, but you get that intertwined with – no eff’s given. You’ve got garage-rocky punk-ass obnoxiousness and you’ve got dreamy. And it all works.

Parquet Courts are back in Austin for a show tonight at The Parish, 214 E. 6th St., sharing the bill with Denton, TX rainbow fuzz-rock warriors Pearl Earl, and ATX rock ‘n’ roll hoodlums Otis the Destroyer. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and Otis starts the music at 8 p.m.
