Now is the time for The Postal Service to save American democracy! No, not the U.S.P.S. (though them too), but the acclaimed early century/millennium indietronic outfit from Benjamin Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie) & Jimmy Tamborello (DNTEL) with Jenny Lewis (Jenny Lewis). Dave (Jon Daly) from Sub Pop Records has come up with the great idea for the band to promote voting and HeadCount with a giant tour that includes forty-plus people on stage. Watch the auditions of Anne Hathaway, Kenny G, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Guns N’ Roses’ Slash and Duff McKagan, Rick Springfield, Huey Lewis, Frank Schøttendt (a.k.a. Tim Robinson), Bret McKenzie (of Flight of the Conchords), IRL Rosie, Vanessa Bayer, Susanna Hoffs, Patton Oswalt, Aparna Nancherla, Caroline Polachek, Michelle Zauner (of Japanese Breakfast), Tunde Adebimpe (of TV On The Radio), Ishmael Butler (of Shabazz Palaces), Denny Rock (a.k.a.
