CMJ 2011: Photos From The SC/JJ/DO Showcase at Union Pool

We’ve been busy busy busy these past few months getting everything together for our CMJ showcase and last night it went off with a bang. If you didn’t make it out to Union Pool, here are some photos of the awesomeness. Try not to be too sad when you see what you missed. If you were there, well, congratulations! Stick around for the rest of the festival and catch some bands from our sister label Dead Oceans.

Parts & Labor Announce 10th Anniversary and Retrospective Shows Followed by Indefinite Hiatus

An announcement from Parts & Labor in their own words:

Dear friends,

This January, Parts & Labor turns 10 years old. We’re planning a string of celebratory shows, in which we play selected material from all of our full length albums, leading up to a big 10th anniversary blow out on February 24th, 2012.

Following these performances, we’re going to take an extended hiatus. We feel incredibly fortunate having had a decade of amazing experiences — making records and new friends, performing with so many killer musicians and artists. But it’s time for each of us to focus
on personal projects for a while. We’re all going to continue to make music through other endeavors.

We’d like to thank everyone who’s supported us, bought our albums, seen us live, offered us a floor to sleep on. We love y’all. As a token of our esteem, we’re giving away a final song called “No Nostalgia (featuring Todd Bailey and Where’s The Party At)”, which was recorded during the Receivers sessions, but suddenly seems all too prescient.

Love,
Dan/BJ/Joe (Parts & Labor)

Announcing: Our CMJ Showcase!

Ever wonder what a summer music festival would be like if it were twenty times bigger, took place in fall, and all the stages were miles apart for some reason? Such is the CMJ Music Marathon, which brings hundreds of bands and thousands of registrants into New York City for an insane, five-day-long musical binge.  And so, we are thrilled to announce that we are partnering with our Dead Oceans and Secretly Canadian family to bring you a majorly fantastic showcase, featuring our own Parts & Labor:

 

See you there, right? Obvs.
