DIIV drop off this weekend’s Jansport Bonfire session show; Parquet Courts (“Parkay Quarts”?) playing instead
Parquet Courts @ 4Knots 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
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.
