Live Gig Video(s): Parquet Courts play ‘One Man, No City’, ‘Outside’ and ‘Paraphrased’ in a Rough Trade session

Continually highly buzzed about band Parquet Courts were recently in the UK and laid down three tracks live as part of Rough Trade session similar to what Girl Band did late last year. In the black and white presentations of ‘One Man, No City’, ‘Outside’ and ‘Paraphrased’, all songs from the punk band’s new album ‘Human Performance’ (their fifth?!?), which was released last Friday.

There’s a line in the press release for these videos made me laugh: “Please note: although filmed in black and white, the band are currently operating in colour.” Someone at Rough Trade clearly has a good sense of humour! Watch the live videos below. For more on Parquet Courts on TGTF, try this link.

Live Gig Video: Girl Band perform ‘Baloo’ as part of Rough Trade session

Currently buzzed about Dublin punks Girl Band should need no introduction. But just in case you’ve been living in a convent / under a rock / in a cave / take your pick, you should know that their debut album ‘Holding Hands With Jamie’, released at the end of September on Rough Trade Records, has continued to stoke the fires of hype that has surrounded the band since they appeared in Austin for SXSW 2015.

If you have so far been not lucky enough to catch them live or perhaps you are just curious what all the fuss is about, they have released this video from a recent Rough Trade session, a performance of ‘Baloo’ from their debut LP. Capturing the band’s anarchic style and featuring lead singer Dara Kiely’s hopelessly rough all over vocals, this is definitely for the lot of you who call yourselves punk fans. Watch the eye-opening performance film below.
