MASTERS OF THEIR CRAFT
Parquet Courts’ Andrew Savage announces his ambitions (or lack thereof) on Light Up Gold’s first track, “Master of My Craft,” claiming he “didn’t come here to dream or teach the world things.” But on, say, his band’s second best track, “You’ve Got Me Wonderin’ Now,” he still passes on nuggets of wisdom (“Toothache’s better than heartache, baby”). Their best, meanwhile, is “Stoned and Starving,” on which a bodega run gets existential and guitars get freaky à la Velvet Underground, rambling out even farther from home. Tonight, they play Acheron with Amanda X and Household.
