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

As mentioned, Parquet Courts will be playing Bowery Ballroom on September 20, opening for Pixies. Tickets to that and the other NYC Pixies shows go on sale Saturday (7/27) at 10 AM.

Soon after, Parquet Courts will have their biggest headlining NYC show yet, playing Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 2. Support comes from The Beets, Yuppies, and Future Punx, the latter of which is the new band from Jason Kelly who was in Fergus and Geronimo with PC's Andrew Savage. Tickets to that show go on sale Friday, August 2 at noon with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (7/31) at noon.

In other news, Parquet Courts' other singer/guitarist, Austin Brown, has another group, The Keepsies. Not entirely dissimilar to his other band, The Keepsies are a little more indiepop and early '60s rock n' roll inspired. (They're good too.) They released their debut 7" last summer and have just released a second. You can stream below.

All Parquet Courts tour dates are listed, along with the Keepsies stream, below...
