Parquet Courts, Japanese Breakfast to play Norman Music Fest

Norman Music Festival just released their lineup for this year and it features plenty of bands that we play right here on RSU Radio. In fact, we play the three headliners. The festival will be April 26 – 28 and best of all, it’s completely free. What’s better than seeing some amazing bands play live for free?

 

Japanese Breakfast is the indie-rock solo project of Michelle Zauner. You can catch her on stage Thursday night at 10:30 PM. Fun Fact about Japanese Breakfast: Michelle Zauner created a browser video game called Japanese Breakfast. You can fight off aliens and hear MIDI versions from her album Soft Sounds From Another Planet.

 

 

 

On Friday you can hear Parquet Courts at 10:30 PM. Parquet Courts is a postpunk band from New York who will be releasing a new album this year. The unnamed album was scheduled to be released in 2017 but the band had an insanely crazy year. Italian composer Daniele Luppi recruited Parquet Courts and Karen O for his album, MILANO. They also wrapped up their tour behind their 2016 album Human Performance.

 

 

 

 

 Saturday night at 10:30 PM,  Tune-Yards will be taking the main stage. The duo released a brand new album on January 19th called I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life. Merrill Garbus, frontwoman of the Tune-Yards, combined the sounds of house and disco in their newest release. With the upbeat music comes a subtle political point about social injustice that Garbus felt was important to be the message of the album.

 

There will also be plenty of local bands from Oklahoma such as Helen Kelter Skelter and Sports that will be taking the stage that weekend. More band announcements will be coming soon. Again, this show is FREE to the public! You can follow Norman Music Festival’s Facebook page to know all of the details as soon as they’re released.
