We’re well into free-summer-shows season, and they make up three of your options below, so after you’ve finished watching some World Cup matches or eaten some nachos (why not both?), you’ve got some great options. Perhaps Germany’s players wanted to skip the rest of the tournament in favour of one of the below…
Their new record Wide Awake!, produced by Danger Mouse, is out on Friday and we’ve loved everything we’ve heard thus far. You can grab tickets for the afternoon show this Thursday at Rough Trade. If you can’t make it, fear not. Pitchfork will be streaming it. Wide Awake! is New York’s Parquet Courts’ fifth record since their […]
It’s hard to get wrapped up in all the terrible news and seemingly everyday atrocities, but it’s important to take note of the good news, the upward trends, the acts of goodwill and all that jazz.
