IT'S NOT YOUR BEAUTY, IT'S MY BAD VISION
(Parts & Labor and Team Robespierre performing at the new Danger Danger in Philly)
I'm off and starting the tour down to SXSW with good-people Parts & Labor. They played at the new Danger Danger in Philly with Team Robespierre, Ecstatic Sunshine, and house-band Red Rocket. It was in a dingy basement with a low bare-beam ceiling. So of course it wasn't long into Team Robespierre's set when they broke something. First it was a lightbulb with Tomasz's head, and then unfortunately later it was their laptop/beat machine. Regardless of the problems, they took it lightly and soldiered on. Parts & Labor filled the basement to the gills with their sound, which included their new member, Sarah Lipstate. Fans of avant-garde/experimental music and guitar virtuoso's in general might already know of Sarah, or her solo project Noveller. She lent her licks to Rhys Chatham’s Guitar Army, and as a member of Glenn Branca’s 100 guitar ensemble. But now you can catch her hanging out with the scruffy dudes of Parts & Labor, tour dates here.
Oh yeah, and I shot some video of the show. Gotta love my special effect, yeah?
Impose Magazine was there too (rolling deep in a full-blown RV, SXSW or bust). They had this to say.
From the recent excellently-curated Cardboard Records compilation, here is Trey Told 'Em (Hearts Of Darknesses + Girl Talk collab) remixing all of the songs on the comp into one track.
