Please join us in congratulating SOTC faves Parts & Labor for being asked to play this spring’s All Tomorrow’s Parties: The Fans Strike Back in Minehead, England. For the upcoming installment of the Best Music Festival Series Ever, the weekend’s 6000 ticket-buyers curate one day by individually choosing ten bands they’d like to see. Invitations have been rolling out at regular intervals since December 1, mostly to the top four vote-getters. But then a few weeks ago, Parts & Labor finished last in the results–100 out of 100 bands–and “in a somewhat counter-intuitive stroke of luck” were asked to play. Brilliant.
Better still: MGMT were also invited, but, like Kraftwerk and Tom Waits, were deemed “too expensive.” Hahahahahaha!
