Parks. Outside. Harvard Square. Mayfair. Beautiful day. Beautiful sounds. Time with the boy. Time in the sun. Taking pictures. Hanging out. Let’s do this again sometime.
Good golly, Parks, you are one fine musical group. I’d write a gushing review of your show at The Sinclair for WERS’ 65th Anniversary, but I’ve only got a couple of minutes. I’d rather spend them pre-ordering your record.
OK, here are some photos…
Hey, Parks! We need to talk. Remember, during the snowstorm, when you played “Holiday Road” and it was stuck in my head for weeks? Well, I just got it out and you go and play it again? At least I’ve got “Sweater Weather” and “Modern Fiction” in there, too. Anyway, it looks like the good word about Rock-n-Romp is getting out. January’s edition sold out, with Parks dispensing musical earworms to the crowd of all ages.
During a snowstorm… At The Middle East Downstairs… As part of Indie Rock Ranger’s Holiday Spectacular… Parks turned “Holiday Road” into a holiday classic.
Every Parks gig feels like an event. They’ve scored some sweet slots on big shows. They’ve played with some great bands. They Rumbled. The band’s most recent show was doubly special: They opened for The Motion Sick reunion while simultaneously releasing their new 7″ single. Not too shabby.
Despite my love of their self-titled album, I’ve somehow never been able to catch Oranjuly live. My loss. Their set at TT’s was as good as I had imagined it would be.
Friday morning the world seemed a little more right…
