Friday Show Recommendations: Parquet Courts+Thurston Moore, Purple Mane + More!

Whether you’re into crunchy guitars or dance parties, this weekend has it all! You simply MUST stop your Winter Netflix Binge Fest 2018 and go out on the town this Friday. “We’re gonna have some fun, show you how it’s done, T.G.I.F.”

First up we recommend Parquet Courts and Thurston Moore at the Showbox! Have you been itching for more post punk in your life? Do you love Lou Reed and Television? Then you’ve gotta get to this show. Parquet Courts are one of those few bands who have successfully re-invented an old sound without sounding like total cop outs. Check out a few of their fantastic tracks below.

Side note –  “Human Performance” may be the first music video to star even creepier looking puppets than Genesis’ “Land of Confusion,” which is doubly hilarious since this video was directed by an artist named Phil Collins. As an added bonus if you head to the show you also get to check out Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth’s solo project!

For those of you milling around Pioneer Square, mosey over to the J&M Cafe for a night jam-packed full of local Seattle bands which will assuredly get your hips shaking. Indie rockers Moon Dial will ease you in with smooth swaying crooners, while Killer Workout will knock it up a notch with Bowiesque synthy dance jams. Cap off your evening dancing your ass off to Prince tribute band Purple Mane. If you don’t leave this show absolutely drenched in sweat and giggling with happiness there is probably something wrong with you.

Tickets for Parquet Courts + Thurston Moore (all-ages) on Friday, February 16th are available at Showboxpresents.com. Tickets for Purple Mane + Co. at J&M Cafe are available from The Stranger.
