It didn't take long for post-punks Parquet Courts to go from underground to international headliners. The Brooklyn-by-Texas quartet has been acclaimed across the blogosphere, including writeups in SPIN and Rolling Stone. Their debut full-length, Light Up Gold, turned even the most jaded of punk rockers' heads, and the new Sunbathing Animal EP maintains their rugged reputation. With incessant riffs, pogoing melodies and blaring sing-shouts from the older of the two Savage brothers, you can expect a tooth or two will be lost in the all-ages mosh pit. Put some effort into getting familiar with their tracks, as they are well-known for their attention to lyrical detail. Maybe this time around they'll play fan favorite “Stoned and Starving,” but the only real thing you can count on is not knowing what to expect.
