Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

We are so excited to hear new songs from post punkers Parquet Courts live! Parquet Courts will be at the Showbox this Sunday {September 23} with Gong Gong Gong opening – and it’s ALL AGES! {tickets}

Their latest record Wide Awake is definitely one of our favorite records of 2018. The title track is one of the catchiest songs on the planet right now. And who doesn’t love yelling “And Fuck Tom Brady” at the end of Total Football.

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 couple more 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.
