Andrew Savage of Parquet Courts sings at the 9:30 Club on May 12, 2016.
Parquet Courts released Human Performance, a tremendous fourth studio album, last year via Rough Trade. They then toured lots and lots.
Now they are touring some more! And they return with their outstanding new songs to play again at the 9:30 Club on Monday, Feb. 13. (Read our Parklife DC review of Parquet Courts’ last 9:30 Club show!)
With the new album, Andrew Savage (vocals, guitar), Austin Brown (vocals, guitar), Sean Yeaton (bass), and Max Savage (drums) raise the bar considerably, pooling their collective strengths into a set of songs that thematically center on estrangement, abandonment, and loneliness in a powerfully affecting way.
Watch Parquet Courts perform “One Man No City” from Human Performance at the Pitchfork Music Festival Paris 2016:
