Parquet Courts’ thought-provoking rock is dancing to a new tune. Sympathy For Life finds the Brooklyn band at both their most instinctive and electronic, spinning their bewitching, psychedelic storytelling into fresh territory, yet maintaining their unique identity.
Built largely from improvised jams, inspired by New York clubs, Primal Scream and Pink Floyd and produced in league with Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, Hot Chip, David Byrne), Sympathy For Life was always destined to be dancey. Unlike its globally adored predecessor, 2018’s Wide Awake! – a Top 30 hit here and an album of the year everywhere from Spin and The Skinny to NME and Australia’s Double J – the focus fell on grooves rather than rhythm.
“Wide Awake! was a record you could put on at a party,” says co-frontman Austin Brown. “Sympathy For Life is influenced by the party itself. Historically, some amazing rock records been made from mingling in dance music culture – from Talking Heads to Screamadelica. Our goal was to bring that in to our own music.
“Each of us, in our personal lives, has been going to more dance parties. Or rather, we were, pre-pandemic, which is when this record was made.”
All attendees must be fully vaccinated for COVID (proof is required via vaccination card or photo of vaccine card on phone), or show proof of a negative PCR COVID test within 72 hours preceding the show. Proof in all cases must be accompanied by photo ID. Full COVID policy here.
Would love to get some free tix for Parquet Courts! I’ve never seen them live and their recordings always feel like they are trying to capture a raw energy from their live performances.
I’ve listened to this band in several bedrooms, cars, pairs of shoes, and various uncomfortable situations where a pair of headphones is necessary. I would consider myself a pretty big fan, and would kill for a chance to see them live if it came down to it. Actually maybe not, but who knows.
I’m vaxxed and jaxxed to see Parquet Courts!

Because Parquet Courts have helped me through the pandemic and I can’t believe concerts are back, hurrah.
Love dance parties also. Count me in.
The Talking Heads grooves on the new album will send my bouncy dance feet into heightened sensory overload if I am selected.
Parquet is an incredible band and I’d be super stoked to be fully healed from my broken leg and back out on the dance floor with them!

Want to hear garage rock. Reminds me when the bands from Detroit, Michigan started out before they were famous. Ted Nugent, Bob Seger, Mitch Ryder and so on. Those local boys became so famous.
