Hope the comedy stage goes down like the Pitchfork comedy stage. That was the most hilarious flop of the ages. Comics
mostly oblivious to contemporary music, complaining about
bands being too noisy.

what demographic is this targeting? i can honestly say that lineup doesn't appeal to me in the slightest.

not a single act on there i'm dying to see.

First night is $110 + fees for four bands.

first night is $110 for 5 hours of music + comedy and an incredible atmosphere that has to be experienced to be understood.

That atmosphere is 20 and 30 something white single music nerds in a collective circle jerk.

that sucks that brian jonestown massacre dropped out. notice they never get booked for festivals? i guess everyone's seen dig and dont want to deal with it. they killed it on this tour though when i saw them.

definitely the worst lineup for ATP since it started.

The price of the festival doesn't bother me, it's the price of the bedbug infested hotel that goes.

Luckily all the bands are doing local shows. Well, except the Stooges.

scrolled directly to the comments. didnt check the lineup.. let me guess.. fucked up are playing.

Sunday is so weak...White Hills, Vivian Girls, Kurt Vile, Girls...it's more like a Todd P show from last summer than an expensive/exclusive international music festival.

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2010 7:03 PM

I'm incorporating this festival into a month long trip from Melbourne. Thrilled to be seeing Stooges, Breeders, Sonic Youth, The SCIENTISTS! and Hallogallo. Sad that BJM pulled out, great to be seeing Fuckbuttons and Mudhoney again. Overall, been discovering most of the other acts on Myspace, don't know a lot of them, very excited to be discovering a lot of new music. See you all in 3 weeks time - woooohoo!!

Posted by Melbournite | August 11, 2010 7:43 PM

Does anyone know if The Scientists are play'n any NYC show's while they are close by for ATP????

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2010 7:48 PM

Friday and Saturday are perfect.

My friend nailed Sunday today when he said "it is everything awful about music today plus everything awesome about hip-hop 1979-1994. Plus Altar."

Posted by noamjamski | August 11, 2010 8:00 PM

According to Kim Salmon's myspace page, there are no extra Scientists dates in NY at this stage. If there is going to be, I think BV will be the place to share the news!

Posted by Melbournite | August 11, 2010 8:04 PM

ATP's fun and all, but this lineup isn't worth the cost/drive/flight.

because it is very important yet difficult to get the perfect mixture of chick peas, lemon, garlic, tahini and Japanese feedback...

Every year has been great. Still holding out for a breathtaking closer for Sunday night.

"My friend nailed Sunday today when he said "it is everything awful about music today plus everything awesome about hip-hop 1979-1994. Plus Altar."

That's a funny gag but know that Herc introduced the break in 1973 before you retell it

This is the final lineup.

"Still holding out for a breathtaking closer for Sunday night."

That would be nice, but I don't think it's happening.

Seems like they had a lot of trouble filling up the weekend. Past ATP NYs have had 6 or 7 bands on the "Don't Look Back" night in addition to bigtime comedy club headliners. Not so much this year.

It will still be a great time, but I'm not as excited as I was in 2008.

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2010 11:45 PM

this looks excellent.
no cash for it though. :(

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2010 11:46 PM

I'm going but it won't be an automatic ticket again for next year. 4 bands on friday + no headliner on sunday is pretty bad.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2010 1:00 AM

Black Jack with Steve Albini. The winner gets an effects pedal and a years supply of Lebanese Hummmus.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2010 3:27 AM

Having a celebrity "curator" is nice, but is there anything about this lineup that's distinctly Jim Jarmusch? It's oddly faceless and strikingly like practically every other ATP line-up. For once I'd like to see a curator say, "All I want are bands that were written up in that "Wild Planet" article in Sounds in 1983" or "I only want bands with the word "White" in their name."

Posted by Crosseyed Sniper | August 12, 2010 5:45 AM

Can Jim please curate some hummus for Sunday? Picking bands is easy, but a delicately balanced dish of hummus is really worth having a "curator" for.

Does anyone know if it's possible to sneak into this? It's like an hour away from me.

Are you the jerk who didn't pay for the Primus ticket either 8:45? Quit being a cheap bastard and buy a ticket!

I can honestly say that after reading your statement, it's safe to assume that your taste in music rivals that of a 14-year old girl who dreams of someday seeing Dan Deacon. SISSY!!!

looks pretty meh. plus the best part of festivals is the hippie element, which there is none of here. i like some hare with my krishna. i'd rather go to jerryfest.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2010 10:24 AM

Having attended at least five ATP festivals, I can easily say, this is far and away the worst, most disappointing lineup ever.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2010 10:26 AM

Saturday's lineup is so incredible. Wish I had gotten a ticket just for that day instead of the whole weekend.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2010 10:32 AM

This will be the last year they do a festival in NY. Unless by some stroke of luck they are able to book an awesome headliner next year, this will be the death of this festival. The lineup is an embarrassment, and I'm extremely upset to be holding tickets and a room for this crap. I will not buy in advance next year. They lost money on this last year, and they'll lose money again this year if I had to venture a guess.

just out of curiosity, to the folks who are super excited about this, what are the top 5 acts you are most looking forward to?

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2010 12:23 PM

Top 5

1. Iggy and Stooges doing Raw Power
2. Hallogallo does Neu! stuff
3. Sleep reunion
4. Beak>'s first American show
5. SunnO))) and Boris doing Altar

I mean, i know "LOL YOU LIVE IN NEW YORK AND I AN SEE ALL THIS STUFF AT MUSIC HALL OF BILLIAMBORG ROFL RFOL FUCKING LOSER" but the chill, uncrowded vibe and great soundsystem, great sight lines, etc.. is gonna make this superior to going to five separate annoying, sold-out packed New York shows, no question

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2010 12:44 PM

Ending with Sunn 0)))) and Boris is an excellent idea. I'm sick of all these brooklyn art school softies complaining about headliners on Sunday.

Wrong. Beak play the Bowery first.

just to keep the facts straight in the midst of the this whine fest ... 2008 5 bands friday night...

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2010 2:45 PM

"Yeah, probably that he SELECTED THE LINEUP from BANDS THAT HE LIKES."

I think you missed the point 5:45 was trying to make. What is the different between the bands that JJ likes and what would have ended up without him? Probably nothing. Coincidence? There is no "leftfield"/oddball band on the lineup.

Still a good lineup, but nothing says "JJ" about it.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2010 2:56 PM

You can't help but think that this is it for ATPNY. Wish that wasn't the case but ticket sales must be dismal and people are dropping out like flies--even those that own tickets/have rooms. If they just combined Sunday and Friday into one day and made this year a 2-day fest, it might work.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2010 3:14 PM

I cant wait for this, all these people that are "dropping out" or whatever is great, they were probably all lame anyway!

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2010 3:19 PM

ATP sells tickets based on past performance and the prestige of the ATP brand. Sunday doesn't live up. Look at the Matt Groening lineup from May or the upcoming Godspeed one. US fans getting screwed once again. Thanks for the memories, ATP!

i have heard that comment about ATP losing money on last year's event, but I don't see how thats possible. It seemed like they had sold most of their tickets and i doubt they would put it on this year if it really put them in the negative. As for those complaining about the line-up, i can understand being a little jaded about sunday because some of those bands are pretty normal bands that get a lot of play in brooklyn, but Friday and Saturday is gonna be amazing and Sunday still has White Hills, Altar, DJ Kool Herc and Two WU-Tang performances. I do agree Groening picked cooler stuff and Brian Jonestown cancellation broke my heart, but the sound system is THE BEST i ever heard and The two music halls there are the size of a small NYC show. this festival is gonna kick!

Posted by STRNGLV | August 12, 2010 8:06 PM

Man, I've always wanted to see the Scientists. Someone should book them in the city, because I stay far away from these yuppie festivals.

That's the first time I've ever hear Scientists and yuppie uttered in the same sentence/para. You should do bit more research on your festivals!

Posted by Melbournite | August 12, 2010 10:22 PM

I am all for chill vibes, great sightlines and the best soundsystem I have ever heard, I just want it to be in NYC. But then again, as a New Yorker, I would never invest a ton of cash and 3 days of my time to this event. I am, however, looking forward to seeing Godspeed in NYC after they play ATP next year

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2010 11:10 PM

I think the destination part of this whole thing is awesome, I just think the bands suck. I wouldn't pay for that lineup. Should be called AYP, All Yesterday's Parties. Blah.

Posted by STRNGLV | August 13, 2010 12:48 PM

haha the line up isnt jarmusch enough? cince he picked the acts i would have to disagree. also look at the facts. Jarmusch is tight with wu-tang (rza did the soundtrack for Ghost Dog) BJM was originally picked and Jarmusch is actually on one of their album covers. Boris did the soundtrack for his latest film "limits of control". He picked the bands

Posted by Anonymous | August 13, 2010 12:54 PM

@10:22 - In my experience, all of these modern music festivals are populated by graphic designers, trust fund types, industry slime, people who live in Williamsburg, etc.: yuppies (young upwardly-mobile professionals). Just because they have tight trousers and an hip, expensive haircut doesn't make them anything different.

Like I said, I'd love to see the Scientists, but I avoid these yuppie festivals like the plague.

Posted by Anonymous | August 14, 2010 4:19 AM

the vibe at atp is much different than that of any other festival, people really do come for the music. this is a significantly weaker lineup than godspeed, true, but financially it's out of my hands. hope it's not the last one but i'll echo previous statements, this is alternately the most ambitious (dj kool herc, scientists, hallogallo, altar as headliner) and starved (sonic youth, multiple 2008 repeats) lineup yet. regardless. see ya'll in september.
