ABC News projected Maxwell Frost to be the first member of Gen Z elected to Congress following his race for a House of Representative seat in Florida’s 10th district. Fittingly, he’ll celebrate his victory in a very Gen Z way.

In response to news of the results, the 25-year-old Democrat tweeted that he plans to see The 1975‘s concert this Thursday in Washington, D.C.

“I’ve been campaigning for over a year this is wild!!” Frost wrote. “I’m gonna see @the1975 on Thursday to celebrate!!!”

The 1975 is currently on a U.S. tour supporting the band’s new album, Being Funny in a Foreign Language, which dropped in October. The outing’s already made headlines this week after footage surfaced of frontman Matty Healy appearing to eat raw meat onstage during Monday’s show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
