Featured Show of the Week: Parquet Courts w/ B Boys (5/17) @ The Mothlight

Parquet Courts recently released their third record, Human Performance, and it's their best record yet! Many of us here at AshevilleFM must love this band, because they've been on heavy rotation here at the station. Parquet Courts are undeniably talented and their approach to music is very refreshing yet very familiar all at once. The strange and provocative B Boys get the night started. This is going to be a good show! Catch it! For more shows around town, check out our AshevilleFM Show/Event Calendar HERE!
