ATP NY

All Tomorrow's Parties (ATP) is happy to announce its return to Kutsher's Country Club in Monticello, New York for the 2nd annual ATP New York festival. The event will be held Sept 11-13, 2009. Last year's festival, co-curated by My Bloody Valentine, was a critical and cultural success with rave reviews from media and fans. This year's Fest will be co-curated by The Flaming Lips.
ATP has announced the final lineup additions to this year's festival. That includes the comedians who will be joining David Cross on Friday night, and official confirmation that it will in fact be Bob Mould who will be playing Husker Du songs (a whole LP to be exact) with No Age (who also just announced some NYC shows). Every act who plays Sunday will be playing some kind of special set...
Recently added were Crystal Castles, Super Furry Animals, Boris performing Feedbacker, Low Lows and "Oneida presents the Ocropolis" - where Oneida will transport the impetus, spirit and community of their multidisciplinary studio/performance space, The Ocropolis, to ATP for a full day of improvisation, collaboration, and recording, combined with the astounding Mighty Robot Visuals light crew. Other announced acts include Boredoms continuing their BOADRUM series, performing with 9 drummers on stage. Deerhoof will perform with special visuals by Martha Colburn. Caribou will perform as Caribou Vibration Ensemble, with a 4 piece horn section, 4 drummers and a choir and guests that include Kieran Hebden (Four Tet/Fridge/Kieran Hebden & Steve Reid), Koushik (Stones Throw Records), John Schmersal (Enon, Brainiac), Kathryn Bint (One Little Plane), Ahmed Gallab (Sinkane), Marshall Allen (Sun Ra Arkestra) and more.
Other brand new additions to Sunday are Menomena, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Birds Of Avalon, and Hopewell.

Circulatory System, was added in the last announcement, and have since revealed an entire tour. Dead Meadow play ATP on Saturday and will perform on a boat in NYC that same week. The Feelies have a Brooklyn show scheduled. Super Furry Animals play NYC and NJ in addition to ATP. The list of related shows goes on...

Unfortunately missing from the ATP NY schedule is Nick Cave - not that he was ever supposed to be there, but in addition to being very involved with ATP in general, he was recently confirmed to be only a short car ride away just one day after the festival ends. Full 2009 lineup below...

Derrick Brown and the Navy Gravy? Yum.

2800 capacity? Why has this not sold out?

Posted by dave | August 7, 2009 10:47 AM

are Crystal Castles supposed to be a reason to go to this??? Who the fuck would be enticed by that addition of total shit???

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 10:52 AM

Don't worry 10:52, they'll be forgotten in two years. Guaranteed.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 10:59 AM

i was gonna make the obvious MEHnomena post but they are the best of the last four bands added.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 11:00 AM

Don't the Crystal Castle haters ever get tired of hearing themselves speak?

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 11:03 AM

at least Melvins are playing.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 11:10 AM

11:03 I was gonna say the same thing. whats your grievance 10:52 are you the madonna shirt dude?

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 11:10 AM

thank god they added hopewell.

Posted by jan janson | August 7, 2009 11:11 AM

i was fairly convinced that Wayne would have Mercury Rev added to the bill again (and they were really great last year), but i guess we get Hopewell. Better than Wounded Knees, at least.

Who knew that Mercury Rev had so many side-spinoffs?

10:52 and 10:59 is the same person.

Hopewell are so underrated. Last two albums are just amazing.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 11:14 AM

Hopewell's a great addition! So fucking good live.

This lineup is awesome. Wish I were going.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 11:18 AM

this is an amazing lineup, but the truth is, this is a REALLY expensive fest. imagine how much it'll cost factoring food and drinks?

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 11:23 AM

Actually, you can bring your own food and drinks, or at least you could last year. I spent maybe $50 over 3 days and was never without a beer or something to eat.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 11:29 AM

It's much more worth it than APW's ticket prices (around the same, a little less I believe), 11:23.

People trash-talking Crystal Castles, how original..

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 11:31 AM

Boris performing Feedbacker is awesome

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 11:58 AM

forgot black dice on the lineup

ps...crystal castles are the worst garbage i have ever heard...there is no redeeming quality

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 12:09 PM

Is Boris going to come all this way and not play a NYC show?

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 12:09 PM

Hopewell. Fantastic band on record and live. Should be enormous.
Sleepy Sun's record is great. They will probably be great live.

As far as trashing Crystal Castles goes; any young band that throws temper tantrums AND are truly awful deserve all the backlash and negativity and trashing that's coming to them. Screw those talentless entitled honkies!

MAKE IT NOT CRYSTAL CASTLES!!!!!!!!

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 12:15 PM

Man, all the love for Hopewell. I've seen them on bills a lot over the last, well, ten years, and have never felt anything but apathy. Frat rock in sheep's clothing.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 12:17 PM

Crystal Castles played an insane set at APW. thats all I know.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 12:36 PM

I hope this is the last year of the retro snooze-fest that is Don't Look Back. They should switch to a round robin day, which would be a lot more exciting/interesting.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 12:48 PM

that guy Lyndon from Hopewell is good with computers.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 12:49 PM

FRAKKK!! Menomena! Damn, I'm too broke for this.

Posted by Aaron | August 7, 2009 12:49 PM

this festival would sell better if it happened over labor day weekend. if you have to work monday getting back to the city sunday night/ monday morning is probably a bitch.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 1:15 PM

plus tent camping would be a good thing.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 1:17 PM

Worth every penny. And of course you can bring your own booze and food. How would they enforce it? The place is huge, and security is harmless. ATP knows how to throw a festival.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 1:18 PM

i drove there last year. traffic was worse on friday on the way up, early AM monday morning was a breeze. work sucked on monday but it was worth it.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 1:20 PM

is derrick brown and the navy gravy
still doing stuff with the flaming lips?

Posted by hot sauce | August 7, 2009 1:37 PM

i wish this was this weekend. cant wait another month!!!!!

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 1:43 PM

can somebody tell me what time Friday's card starts?

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 2:13 PM

fri started at 6ish last year

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 2:43 PM

it's a long month, too. five weeks.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 3:01 PM

Goddammit they're gonna play Walkabout.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 3:19 PM

Well I am most excited about Super Furry Animals addition! I cant believe them and Flaming Lips are playing at the same event on the same day! This is my dream performance to see these 2 acts back to back! I will already miss Friday and Sat though due to not enough money and seeing SFA playing NY on Friday and NJ on Sat. Best act ever.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 3:53 PM

The first set on Friday was at 4:30ish

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 7:03 PM

Nick Cave played keys when The Dirty Three played Ocean Songs in Aus earlier this year. Maybe he will be at the festival?

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 7:20 PM

I am truly baffled at how people are excited about this line-up, let alone stating that it trumps that of last year. I understand people harbor different preferences and I am not stating that mine or more worthy than that of others, but Flaming Lips over My Bloody Valentine; Deerhoof over Dinosaur Jr.. Built To Spill, Mogwai, Low, Thurston Moore, Yo La Tengo. I just don't see it. Yes, there are a few gems amidst the muck, but I horribly regret purchasing a ticket for this year in hopes that it was going to unfold at the same level as last year. Last year sold out by late May. This year is still available and the show is weeks away.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 9:01 PM

Personal preferences aside, it seems about the same level of bands. My guess is that they have about the same budget as last year.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 9:35 PM

i dont think last year sold out. the hotels did, but not the actual fest.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2009 11:25 PM

I bought tix about 2 weeks before last year's fest, so it definitely didn't sell out in late May. I do think Sunday's bill is down from last year, but I think Friday and Saturday are up. Either way, it should be a blast. The setting, atmosphere and people are what made it so memorable for me last year, and that should be no different this time.

Posted by Anonymous | August 9, 2009 12:00 AM

anyone know if menomena's booked a local show?

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2009 5:06 PM

Last year didn't sell out until the week of. Also, Yo La Tengo, Mogwai, Thurston Moore, My Bloody Valentine, etc amount to a collective yawn of 90s alt-rock blandness. Jesus Lizard and Melvins and No Age as Husker Du (with Bob Mould) and Boris and The Boredoms.... The list goes on. This year is surprisingly better than last year, despite your nonsensical protestations.

Boris performing Feedbacker is awesome
