When: Sun., Dec. 6, 8:30 p.m. 2015
Earlier this year, NYC’s Parquet Courts released a mostly instrumental, wildly experimental EP, Monastic Living. Something of a screed against the digital era, the recording was a distinct departure from their earlier work and drew sharp criticism from reviewers — the harshest of whom, interestingly, publish solely online. But the clatter and clank of unconventional noise was meant as a jarring wake-up call, a rejection of screen-centric society that suggests there’s more to life than scrolling through your phone. Like, for example, experiencing challenging, provocative art live and in the flesh. Do just that when Parquet Courts play the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington on Sunday, December 6, with Pill and Burlington’s Joey Pizza Slice.
Price: $15/17. AA
