watch Parquet Courts play “Wide Awake” on ‘Ellen’ w/ mems of Destruction Unit, Woods & more


Of all the talk shows you might expect Parquet Courts to appear on, Ellen might not be at the top of your list but the band did just that today, performing the title track to their album Wide Awake, a song Ellen said she loves “so very much.” The band brought with them a few friends to help out on the percussive-heavy song, including Mary Lattimore, Jarvis Taveniere from Woods, Doug Marvin of Drawing Boards, and members of Destruction Unit and Ukiah Drag. Watch that video below.

Parquet Courts kick off their Wide Awake tour tonight (4/24) in Houston, TX and play Austin’s Levitation Festival on Thursday (4/26). There are still no NYC dates on the tour…surely they are planning something. Stay tuned. Wide Awake is out May 18 via Rough Trade. All dates are listed below.
