With roots in Texas and operations in New York, up and coming post-punk band Parquet Courts is
covering all the bases to make a bigger name for itself. The group’s first full-length album Light
Up Gold is now available everywhere from Calgary to Yokohama, and the refreshingly raw ‘70s punk vibes
throughout the record have it spreading quickly.
The band’s two main songwriters and lead vocalists, Austin Brown and Andrew Savage, met while meeting
at Savage’s record-listening club while attending the University of North Texas in Denton. The two
eventually each moved on their own to New York City and joined up with Savage’s brother Max and bassist
Sean Yeaton. Their EP American Specialties
dropped in 2011, preceding the release of Light Up Gold
in August 2012.
They are currently touring the country, with stops along the east coast this month, including Connecticut College in New London, CT on 2/15,
Voyeur Night Club, Philadelphia, PA on 2/16, and 2/22 at The Black Cat in Washington, DC.
