Has anyone here seen Parquet Courts live before? They are playing the same night in Philly as Foals and Surfer Blood, and I love Surfer Blood but am not a huge fan of Foals, though I heard their live show is amazing. However, that show is at the Electric Factory (capacity of 2500-3000) and Parquet Courts is at a small 150 person venue. I am thinking about seeing Surfer Blood and then leaving after to see Parquet Courts, since the venues are very close to each other. Any suggestions?
EDIT- wanted to add the Parquet Courts show is only 10 dollars and Light Up Gold is probably one of my favorite albums of last year

My love for you just doubled. I didn't think it was possible
Tag-a-longs are soooo overrated! In theory they sound awesome, but in reality they don't deliver. The peanut butter is bland and waxy and the chocolate flavor is nonexistant. No thank you.
You must be buying the wrong cookies. Maybe the girl scouts in your area have a surplus of old tagalongs because the ones I get are not bland/waxy and the chocolate is great. They can be great in the freezer as well.

Every morning when I take a dump, I walk out of the bathroom like Kramer. It's probably because I'm so much lighter. It's kind of like wearing a spandex suit or other tight clothing. You feel like a total ninja. So yeah, when I poop, I feel like Ninja Kramer in a greenman outfit.
Here’s a quote that’s out of the blue: Grammy-award winning band Mumford & Sons has expressed a desire to experiment with different sounds this time around, including hip-hop, according to Rolling Stone.
Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford told Rolling Stone of the band’s desire to rap, seeking out veteran rapper Jay-Z for input and how the band practices rapping in a backstage practice room during their tour.
“We really want to rap,” he told Rolling Stone. “We’ve just got so much to say – saying it through a melody doesn’t really work for me. We’ve been talking with Jay-Z about it, you know. It’s gonna be a fresh experience for our band.”
Although the article says they practice rapping and have cited Jay-Z as a knowledge source, it’s hard to tell if they’re serious or having some fun with the press. And don’t get too excited to see them trading in a bass drum for an 808 sample anytime soon—banjo player Winston Marshall made sure to note that Mumford & Sons’ third album will take longer to produce, “a few more years than it took to make Babel.”
