There was a venue wide discussion about Netflix’s The Crown, lead by Austin Brown (vocals, guitar) and a slower track that replaced the typical pit with a coupled up slow dances. It was a weird night, but Parquet Courts shows tend to be.

The energy they give off them is infectious and radiates through everyone in attendance. If you’ve never seen XA live, don’t miss their next tour!
