Since their debut as Parquet Courts, brothers Max and Andrew Savage have proven that guitar rock can still be intelligent and subversive. On the band's latest stripped-down, Velvet Underground-inspired album Human Performance, the New York group puts its razor-sharp wit to good use, lashing out against gentrification one minute and lamenting the departure of a girlfriend the next—an artful and snotty display that doesn't get lost in pretentiousness. Local punk rockers Meat Wave and eclectic noise-makers Good Willsmith support at this Red Bull Sound Select 30 Days in Chicago show.
