Name: Parquet Courts

Featured track: "Borrowed Time" from Light Up Gold

Country/City of origin: Brooklyn, New York (via Austin, Texas)

Genre: Punk rock

In one sentence: "Those of you interested in the period where punk merged into post-punk will find yourself happy, as the grooves definitely are pogo worthy, and the vocal delivery is spot on." - Austin Town Hall

Why we chose them: They're four young dudes who have figured out how to make partying their job in their 20s. Jumping, sweating and entertaining on stage, they put on a high energy NYC-style punk rock show.

Official SXSW showcase: Friday, March 15 at Mohawk; Saturday, March 16 at Viceland and Red 7.
