Jeff Mangum

All Tomorrow's Parties returns to the USA this September in the new location of Asbury Park, N.J. bringing an I'll Be Your Mirror event to the iconic waterfront. For the inaugural U.S. I'll Be Your Mirror, Portishead will curate and headline their firrst East Coast shows since 1998 on the Saturday & Sunday.

As well as Day Tickets, ATP have to date been selling two types of weekend pass - "Three Day Jeff Mangum" passes that include Jeff Mangum's Friday show and guarantee access to one of the Portishead shows (as well as everything else at the festival) and "Three Day Portishead" passes that do not give access to Jeff's Friday show but give guaranteed access to both Portishead shows as well as the rest of the festival. Today we announce a third type of weekend pass...

Portishead have invited Jeff to play an extra show on the Sunday night of the festival. Therefore this week we release new "Three Day Jeff Mangum Sunday Passes" - these give access to all three days of the festival to passholders who will see Jeff Mangum on the Sunday night and are guaranteed to see one of the two Portishead shows. The original Three Day passes for the event are now called "Three Day Jeff Mangum Friday Passes."

Say that all three times fast. All three day pass options are still on sale. More details on all ATP ticket options are below.

That means Jeff is playing Asbury Park three times, twice during the actual festival (see above), and, as you know, once on Monday (10/3) at Paramount Theatre (the day after ATP and not actually part of the fest itself). The Monday show has been sold out for a while now, but ATP are releasing a few more tickets for it. "To buy email feedback@atpfestival.com with JEFF MONDAY TICKETS in subject line, and tell us how many tickets you want. We will respond as soon as possible. Payments must be made by Paypal." A Hawk and a Hacksaw (ft. Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeremy Barnes) open the show.

ATP NJ has a few other lineup additions including Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 (they first reunited to play the Animal Collective ATP that recently happened in the UK), avant guitar hero Marc Ribot, avant sax hero Colin Stetson, avant comedian Reggie Watts, and others. Also: "Today we are also very pleased to announce that in conjunction with The Jonathan Levine Gallery, renowned artist SHEPARD FAIREY (who has created the art for this event and will also DJ) will be presenting an exhibition of his art over the weekend entitled Revolutions: The Album Cover Art of Shepard Fairey. More details of the exhibition will be confirmed soon."

The updated lineup is below, along with updated Jeff Mangum tour dates (he added a few other shows recently too)...

That's not confusing at all...

Mangum better fucking tour

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 1:48 PM

When I read the announcement email in the morning my head hurt...then I kept thinking that this better not turn into one huge cluster, but the email itself was a cluster...

Posted by BLG | June 27, 2011 1:49 PM

Hmmm 3 NJ dates and only 1 NY show for Jeff.....

I'm surprised Bowery Presents hasn't added more dates to Town hall.....

Yeah, I guess when you're used to reading nothing longer than a blurb or idiotic comment, actual structured sentences could prove to be challenging. #worldisdoomed #literacy>beingdumb

ATP the only "US" festival worth going this year.....

Man, I hate Cults and don't understand why festivals like ATP or FYF continue to put them and their boring indie pop on their lineups. Is it it just one of those biased things where they're friends with the promoters or something? They aren't all that good, original or even edgy and should otherwise be playing shows geared at 16 year olds.

Is that James Woods?

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 2:02 PM

I know the BV community will eat this shit up, but as a tried and true indie fan, Mangum is still the only MAJOR draw here. Glad I got my Town Hall tickets.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 2:02 PM

Nah 202pm. Most bv readers care about LCD, Matt and Kim, Dan Deacon, Cults, St. Vincent, and other boring acts......

ATP = true music lovers

Posted by Danny | June 27, 2011 2:08 PM

2:02 is kind of right. If you take Mangum away the line-up looks considerably less exciting.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 2:08 PM

2:02 = idiot

2:04 = true

ATP is offering the best lineup for lovers of actual music....not style, scenes and hype.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 2:11 PM

I wonder if Jeff will be selling that sweater he is wearing at the merch table?!

Also, the Jersey City show will be the tops over all other shows...

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 2:15 PM

I AM a true music lover, 2:11. I just don't care too much for the drony, noisy stuff. I've already seen Shellac, Deerhoof and Battles enough times on their own. Wouldn't mind catching The Horrors or the Pop Group and must say I'm curious about Ultramagnetic MCs, but as someone who doesn't really care for Portishead or drone, not much else for me there.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 2:18 PM

ATP minus Mangum is still the best looking fest this summer!

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 2:20 PM

208pm?! Portishead's first East Coast show since 1998....oh yea it's boring!

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 2:21 PM

@2:04 Matt and Kim are fucking atrocious. There just isn't a festival in NY that's for people somewhere in the middle of the spectrum between Scene Fag and Record Store Clerk.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 2:25 PM

225pm. i agree. but aren't they playing one of those two festivals happening in the hamptons in august?!

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 2:30 PM

Matt and Kim are what happens when you let a Penn State "dropout" with a track scholarship and her goofy square guy friend who probably had never seen a mosh pit or tattoo parlor until Kim showed him one into the DIY scene. I'm not trying to start a comment war over how in order to be "punk" or "DIY," you need to come from humble beginnings, but I truly feel Matt and Kim wore the scene like a Halloween costume, had their parents and parents' financial advisors giving them financial advice about how to bleed the most money out of it and today, they're reaping the rewards by opening for Blink 182 on a Honda-sponsored tour. Their posi-core message is total bullshit.

If you like Neutral Milk Hotel you just might be a collegiate lesbian.

Thinking Fellers is a sweet addition, but I'm hoping that they get a couple more traditional acts into the mix. Last years line-up was slightly underwhelming, but there was a great mix of weird shit, and bands like the Breeders.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 3:01 PM

I am definitely down with this, bro.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 3:05 PM

The festival is gonna be way too bro-ey. Talking major bro-down here! Might as well add Linkin Park at this point since Ribot and Thnking Fellrs are on the bill. Will make DMB Caravan seem like a bloody Stravinsky recital!

Who the fuck are Thinking Fellers? Super dumb name, bro.

This sounds retarded.

@3:19pm: Yeah this thing reeks of aging cooldads from Park Slope with their $70K salaries, jizzing in their pants at the mere mention of Portishead.

3:19 - please explain your logic. Seriously

jeez, matt and kim never tried to make themselves out to be hardcore punkers or something. yeah the blink 182 thing is pretty awful, but i think theyre honestly just nice people who like making music.

not unlike jeff mangum. cool the hate.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 3:47 PM

ATP should try adding more good bands if they want to sell more tickets. Constantly shuffling the Portishead and Mangum pass arrrangments reeks of desperation and an inability to book additional quality acts. Are they simply looking to recoup their losses from the last three years with this fest?

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 3:49 PM

@2:04 St. Vincent does not belong on that list and is far more talented than most of the ATP lineup. Matt & Kim and Dan Deacon are shite, however. There's more to music than tuneless, atonal droning.

The reason Cults is appearing everywhere is because they are on a major label and have the benefit of a powerful marketing and publicity push behind them,

He's been wearing that sweater for a good 15 years my friend...so he's doing something right.

The Jeff Mangum shows are now a disaster. Originally, ATP sold this as a special Jeff Mangum show now there will be 5 shows in the area. Secondly, when are they going to tell us what seat we have for the Jeff Mangum show on Friday? I might be interested in changing to the SUnday show but have no idea what seat I'll have at either show so don't know if I'm throwing away good for bad or bad for good?

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 4:23 PM

This is turning into a confusing clusterfuck!

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 4:25 PM

Well all his area shows sold out instantly , so anything added is still special.... also according to Merge it looks like he's going to do a proper tour next year...

From Merge Website:

"With the added show in New Jersey, Jeff’s schedule for 2011 is nearly complete but there are definite plans for a more expanded North American tour in the first half of 2012 with European dates to follow. Stay tuned to MergeRecords.com for further details."

This dude is more overrated than the Velvet Underground

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 4:37 PM

That ATP press release made my head dizzy.

And yes quality of the lineup aside, Jeff Mangum is playing three times and Portishead is playing twice?

That just says they can't get acts this year. Such a shame. Those three years in stinky moldy Monticello were magical.

"more overrated than the Velvet Underground"

If you really think VU is overrated I'm curious to find out what you think is underrated.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 4:59 PM

@1:53 I am actually able to read and understand complex things, but as 4:44 points out, the press release was poorly written and when I was first read it on my phone, it confused the hell out of me...which I expect it will confuse the hell out of most ticket holders over the weekend.

Jeff Mangum rules.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 9:59 PM

Mangum and Portishead are the least interesting acts in this lineup. Gonna be awesome even without seeing those two at all.

dude it's chris morris you fools.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 10:43 PM

I'm a little annoyed that instead of adding a headliner that I can see, they are paying Jeff Mangum to play again and locking me (a Friday pass holder) out of it. (Not that I even want to see him again after seeing him Friday - I'd like them to book another headliner that everyone can see).

This will probably sell more tickets for them, but I agree with the previous commenter - they are paying for Jeff Mangum to play twice, and Portishead to play twice. This doesn't bode well for new adds to the festival.

I'm beginning to feel a little ripped off - I bought a pass based on reputation alone - and suspect the previous commenter is right - they are desperate to recoup previous years festivals off the back of this one.

@3:49 and how much new material has he produced in 15 years? Answer: 0

Posted by Anonymous | June 28, 2011 8:55 AM

I tend to agree.....

I bought tickets for the festival the day this went on sale. There has not been a significant push for headliners....this was also announced as the *first* Jeff Mangum show(incorrect), and they have been shuffling around three day options to make up for the lack of ticket sales. Bring on some awesome bands....you expanded the size so that more people could attend, but, this list of bands just flat out isn't all that impressive.

I went to ATP 08, and it was HANDS DOWN the best music experience I've ever had.

This has been nothing short of misleading on all accounts and I'm VERY disappointed in ATP.

Posted by energy | June 28, 2011 1:10 PM

I think you have to consider who the ATP curator is, and for Portishead, its actually a really great list of bands.

Posted by Anonymous | June 28, 2011 1:41 PM

Even with Portishead being the curator....it's just missing something.

ATP has had more control in the past few years, with the artist always having the last day.

Where is the don't look back? Where is the juxtaposition of going from Sufjan Stevens in the morning to Animal Collective and Deerhunter at night?

If I could go back, I'd trade these tickets for moogfest..... The lineup to that looks outstanding so far. But then I'd be out overpriced hotel rooms.

Posted by energy | June 28, 2011 1:46 PM

It's missing something? We're on pace to have the most bands at any ATP US event ever.

Just because it's not catering to your tastes, it doesn't mean that the festival is lacking.

ATP has not had more control in the past. This isn't an ATP festival. It's an I'll Look Back event. There isn't a precedent for how it should be.

Portishead is what this show is about. The rest is just garnish.

Thinking Fellers is one of the best bands that nobody remembers. They melt faces live too.

TFUL282 is a great add. Really happy with the lineup, though I could do without Mangum and Portishead both playing twice.
