10 years on since their first ever show, Parquet Courts have announced that they’ll be performing a special livestream concert in celebration!
Filmed live at Brooklyn’s Pioneer Works, ‘On Time’ will air on 10th December, commemorating their first show ever which took place at Monster Island on 17th December 2010, and is set to feature rare archival footage, new interview, and loads more.
In the band’s own words, “Ten years ago our adventure began by playing our first show to virtually no one, and to celebrate we’ve decided to play a show to everyone, virtually.”
Alongside the news, the group are also sharing previously unreleased track ‘Hey Bug’, from the ‘Sunbathing Animal’ LP session. “If I remember correctly, it would have been recorded at Seaside Lounge in Brooklyn, during the fall of 2013. We were working there with our pal Jonathan Schenke, who had recorded ‘Light Up Gold’, but this time in a studio rather than a practice space,” says A. Savage. “We’d have been recording material for ‘Tally All the Things That You Broke’ and ‘Sunbathing Animal’. Editing the sequence for a record is often a tough process, and when it’s over it’s typically such a relief that I’ll purge it from my memory entirely. And now I’m listening to ‘Hey Bug’ these seven years later and thinking what a cool song it is. That period was a frenzy of writing and I know it’s not the only unreleased song from that session. So here you are, our lone musical contribution in the year 2020: ‘Hey Bug’ (recorded 2013).”
