After two-years with limited opportunities to see live music, I am excited to be holding tickets to so many cool shows. On March 2, 2022 I attended the Parquet Courts show at Atlanta's Variety Playhouse. As far as concerts go, the year has gotten off to a good start!
The Parquet Courts are one of my favorite live bands and a band I do not miss when they come to town. After playing at Terminal West (625 capacity) the last few times they played in Atlanta the band stepped up in size to the Variety Playhouse (1000 capacity) for their 2022 tour. It felt like this show was sold out so the larger venue proved to be a good choice. For my own selfish reasons, I hope they stick to theaters for the foreseeable future. I prefer to see live music in an intimate setting. As part of my continuing iPhone 5 movie series I bring you some choice clips from the show.
