Parquet Courts @ 4Knots 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Parquet Courts

As mentioned, DIIV were to play with Guards and Fletcher C. Johnson at a "JanSport Bonfire Session" at Williamsburg's Havemeyer Park on Saturday (9/21) which is free but the RSVP is now closed. Whether or not this has anything to do with last weekend's incident on the way to Basilica Sound Scape, DIIV have dropped off the show. In their place is a band called "Parkay Quarts" which is the same way Parquet Courts are spelling their name on the cover of their forthcoming EP. Is this how they're spelling it now? Probably not if the Con Agra legal department has any say. Updated flyer for the Havemeyer Park show is below.

Parquet Courts (spelled like that) open for Pixies's sold-out show tonight (9/20) at Bowery Ballroom and will play an EP release show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 2 with support from The Beets, Yuppies, and Future Punx. Tickets for that show are still available.

That EP, titled You've Got Me Wonderin' Now, is out October 8 and you can stream a track below.

I'd imagine that dude from DIIV is busy with his new duties as a prison bitch.

Devin from DIIV here. We would have loved to have played this show, but Cole said he has to iron some dude named Jamal's boxers. Maybe next time.

Nasty Nate wants his cocktail, fruit!

Its not a name change, but a silly way to avoid seemingly booking a local show with a Bowery Presents no-compete contract still in place until tonight's show.

Maybe dude just realized it is a little hypocritical to complain about sxsw being too "corporate" and then sign onto play a damn "jansport presents" kind of show.

Snitching is a blight on the indie rock community.

all of this is so gay

Posted by Anonymous | September 20, 2013 7:05 PM

it might be gay, but the troll calling himself "Devin from DIIV" / "Serpent" hit the troll food mother lode right before everyone's eyes on this site. If you click the DIIV tag, the comments from him go back to before the infamous arrest. Now that he's got this massive screw up to fuel his schtick, the comments write themselves. so if that's gay, then it must be raining men for Serpent, you go, troll sister!

Jansport makes durable, affordable barfbags for your hipster rocking needs. Guaranteed for life!

Puh-leeze. Parquet Courts wouldn't even wipe their asses with DIIV's Jansport.

Alexis. true that Martin`s postlng is cool... yesterday I got a gorgeous Aston Martin DB5 from having made $5592 this-past/four weeks and just over $10k last month. this is certainly the easiest-job Ive ever done. I started this 8-months ago and almost immediately was bringin in minimum $80.. per-hour. see this site......www.jobs39.com

what are bands?

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2013 3:41 PM

this is cole from DIIV -- jansport didn't want to be associated with a drug arrest so they kicked us off the bill. we would have been paid $10k for the show
