Patton Oswalt is extremely unfunny.

damn... still more acts to be announced?

Hey! Look everybody! 4:33 is a DOOOOOOSH!

Kutsher's + Lightning Bolt = Rickey's fondest summer vacation memories

Posted by Rickey Henderson | July 28, 2008 4:44 PM

Have you heard his stand up?
I agree with 4:33
Patton is fucking lame.

Does Daft Punk go on during or after Patton Oswalt lights his tent on fire?

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2008 4:50 PM

wow. Robin Guthrie. i wonder what his solo stuff is like?

over a grand for two people with accomodations. these prices are crazy and it can't just be attributed to inflation. I'm not derinding the lineup, but it's just far too expensive.

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2008 5:02 PM

This is getting ridiculous. In the best possible way. Now ATP is just showing off. I guess they want the first one in NY to have as much of a splash as possible.

What is this "film portion" they are speaking of?

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2008 5:05 PM

lot of festivals have a movie theater, guess this one's going to be showing good ones

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2008 5:06 PM

the dollar sucks, they charge (for tickets) in pounds. if you got on the boat early, it's only $350 each plus the stupid surcharge from the bank for ordering in bps. the dollar has fallen since then, and you're stuck in hotels which are more expensive.

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2008 5:07 PM

This is just great!!! I can not wait for this thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2008 5:07 PM

the other factor in the cost is going to be the cost of going. gas is expensive, i guess there is a bus from the city. does anyone know how much they're going to charge for booze and food? is it going to be absurd? i am fully expecting $6/beer at the bar, which is good reason to pregame like a motherfucker.

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2008 5:09 PM

they put up some info on their website about other motels and hotels nearby, and some are cheaper so then its just $225 plus the motel/hotel charge. not too bad considering the lineup!

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2008 5:10 PM

Lightning Bolt plays every ATP. They should have them curate it already...

you can also drive each day from NYC. It's not that far.

Mac Book Air thing is not funny anymore.
Just like Oswalt.

i don't what you guys are talking about Patton is one of the best stand up comedians out there

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2008 5:28 PM

These are bands that have shows lined up in NYC:

$52+ My Bloody Valentine
$32+ Built to Spill/Dino Jr/Meat Puppets
$25+ Mogwai
$15+ Polvo
$15+ Low

not to mention:
YO LA TENGO (a $25+ ticket)
Mercury Rev (a $20+ ticket)
Les Savy Fav (a $20+ ticket)
Shellac (a $20+ ticket)

and a bunch of these and other bands that have no dates to speak of coming up or announced...

that is already over $200 (plus fees) worth of music.

I got my ticket in the first or second batch and after conversion and fees it was $240 for the weekend

you retards need to get out of the city more anyhow.

atp always has a tv and film program. 2 tv channels - 1 curated by atp and 1 curated by the curator) and usually a cinema room of some sort.

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2008 5:46 PM

I've got a logistical question:

In reviewing the Country Club's website, it appears that there is only one room for the acts to play...the "Stardust Room". Are there going to be tents, or is Low going to play in my room?

Seriously, I've been on board since they first put tix on sale, and I can't for the life of me, figure out how all these bands are going to perform, plus comedians, movies and "games" with the limited size of the venue.


Posted by dbati | July 28, 2008 5:50 PM

anon 5:50- there are multiple "venues" that can be used there.

There is a big ballroom which will probably be the "main stage." There are other various small rooms where they do cocktail parties, and various bars and lounges. The place is reasonably massive. It is as much of a "country club" as Miller is the "champagne of beers" but there is a ton of space both indoors and out. There is much more space than is needed to have many activities going on simultaneously.

My family, being middle class Jews from NYC with limited means, went to the various Catskills resorts often. I've been to Kutchers a bunch.

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2008 5:54 PM

You don't know what "limited means" really means if your family could afford to vacation outside of NYC.

"the Criterion Collection will be working in conjunction with ATP to host the cinema at the event."

Okay, holy crap, you win, you've got the coolest festival thing ever, just stop before your customers wow themselves to death.

Posted by J | July 28, 2008 6:14 PM

^^^Oh great, here we go with my family was poorer than yours. Anon 6:01, give it a rest. Please. Okay. Thanks.

A ? for the people that don't find Patton Oswalt funny: Who do you think is funny? The blue collar comedy tour? Seriously who?

And finally, I can't believe that this festival just keeps getting better.

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2008 6:16 PM

you guys realize you're seeing silver mt zion. i don't feel like the brooklynvegan population realizes how great this band is. they are on par with radiohead.

I was getting ready to ask the very same question - until I realized that this Site is populated with Dane Cook fans.

how this dong makes a living doing this is beyond me.

The ATP New York Event takes place over 3 days, from Friday 19th September to Sunday 21st September inclusive at Kutshers Country Club in Monticello, NY.

Performances all take place indoors at the intimate venues within the complex, so you have no need to fear about the weather!

The ticket price is $225 + booking fee. This will gain you entrance into the three day festival including all performances.

Tickets can be purchased with or without accommodation (extra cost for accommodation)

Posted by Gemstones | July 28, 2008 7:39 PM

Listeners may know Patton Oswalt as the neighbor on CBS's The King of Queens. He is also a regular on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. His debut comedy CD is Feelin' Kinda Patton. He is a fine comedian....catch up with him if you can

Posted by Tanzanite | July 28, 2008 8:06 PM

They posted other accommodations that were not at the Raleigh, and the prices were much better than I thought they would be ($99, $125, $65) but you have to drive 7 miles (wow) back to the venue. But if you are going to be there all day, what's the rush? I'm sorry, but spending a full weekend seeing all these bands, and having a good time at my own expense, who really cares.

Posted by thing | July 28, 2008 10:10 PM

Wow, who ever said that thing where they actually put dollar amounts on the price of bands should go suck a cock. Seriously. Its like your comparing your first date rape to the first time you had sex. Its completely fanatically idiotic. Should I be like:

Jimi Hendrix! + $122 (box set)
The Velvet Underground + $3,000(that one record of a demo they sold on ebay)
Radiohead + free (I didn't pay for that album no how)

grand total for ultimate life record awesomness = $3,122 + life validation

I seriously e-mailed them asking if I could volunteer in exchange for passes doing anything and the e-mail they returned read:

Well you dont have to buy accomodation. if you're in driving distance it would just cost
you $225 for the pass. i'm afraid we dont do day tickets.

Also, fuck Silver Mountain Zion and G-d Speed You Black Emperor!! Is there like a premium on dynamics being intellectual property in music? Is there not other music where people can listen to that a one long crescendo slowly but not excessively boring?

People seem to compare them to various forms of classical music every time I hear about them in conversations and when I try to listen to the record, it's just thirty different people playing the same three chords or brief motif over and over and over until there is so many people it's loud!

Meanwhile, people shit all over Dirty Projectors and not once to I hear a single word about the chamber work hes done or the arrangements in Rise Above which are more intelligent and challenging than whats in the Arts and Leisure section of the times.

Posted by Josh Brown | July 28, 2008 10:44 PM

10:44 amen man. I've always been baffled by people who link up their (obviously challenged) understanding of classical music with the unsubtle, boring noise that godspeed & other post-rockers put out. A piece by Ravel or Stravinsky is rich and dense in terms of harmony, instrumentation, melody, tempo, structure, you fucking name it. A song by godspeed? 12 minutes of massed noise, of aggregated strum and drum roll, of bluntly-managed dynamics. Fucking people need to take a music history course.

Also agreed about Dirty Projectors.

Posted by gregory | July 29, 2008 12:16 AM

1121 i like the dirty projectors also. silver mt zion is a very different band than godspeed. if you listen to their last two albums it's not endless instrumental passages but amazing and passionate singing. you should really see them live. they are so much better live than on record. listen to their album "horses in the sky." it is not typical post-rock in any way. they really aren't a post rock band at all right now. here is a little clip of them live:

Lightning Bolt is a good add, I wasnt really that interested in this but now that they will be there Im seriosly considering picking up a ticket.

Posted by Anonymous | July 29, 2008 8:25 AM

just looked at the list. yawn. better make your own music. buy your own instruments with the 225$ instead.

"just looked at the list. yawn. "

If you're yawning at My Bloody Valentine (not to mention the rest) why do you even bother reading this site?

Posted by Anonymous | July 29, 2008 10:16 AM

there's definitely been one dude posting on each thread about atp extolling the virtues of thee silver mt zion orchestra.
i do have a very hard time believing they suck any less than any of the bands they are related to. i'll try, but when i downloaded them a few years ago it got a quick trip to the recycle bin.

Posted by Anonymous | July 29, 2008 10:24 AM

10:05: i read the site for comments like yours. god bless you!

Posted by Anonymous | July 29, 2008 10:24 AM

anon 10:24, your barrier for entry to the silver mt. zion may be that they are not the kind of band you can grab an mp3 of, make a snap judgment, then move it to the recycle bin. They are certainly not a band you can "get" from just a few minutes of music.

They are a band that demands patience. I know that concept is pretty quaint in 2008 with 160gig iPods (which I am just as guilty of owning and not hating on) but they are also not going to reveal their majesty to you in a single listen on a computer.

Agreed with the other commenter that their forte really is in live performance. I was at the Music Hall of Williamsburg show on this last tour and it was absolutely beautiful.

Saw Robin Guthrie play for a mostly empty Studio B last year. I'm a big fan, but it was lacking to say the least. Hope that he's good at ATP.

ATP have also now added E.P.M.D. and And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead to the lineup, with one more band to come. Tickets still on sale!
