Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
All Tomorrow's Parties 2011 - Day 1

For those who experienced and loved ATP America's festivals in Monticello, NY, it may have been difficult to imagine how a change of location, from upstate New York to the New Jersey shore, could possibly improve and enhance the unique and uncanny event that it was known to be. Well, it has.

Friday afternoon the fans, followers and leaders of All Tomorrow's Parties arrived in Asbury Park, NY, a town that only five or so years ago was known for its high crime rate and abandoned boardwalk. It's likely that this decadence, however, is precisely what draws the festival and its goers to a new spot on the map, a mere hour south of New York City. Although the rain dampened the ground here at Asbury Park, it did not extinguish the ATP fire that was sparked on stage by Chavez, Reggie Watts with his knee-slapping musical spoofs (ironically fit for a music festival), event regulars Shellac, Hannibal Buress and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, The Album Leaf and the absorbing Jeff Mangum (of Neutral Milk Hotel). -[Dossier]

Nice repeat on the pants by Bob - he was sporting those beauties last night at the Bell House. Wonder if he washed them???

funniest moment of the weekend was when someone quipped that BPB was getting really into the craft beer scene and planned on changing his name to...

Barley "Pints" Brewery

Posted by Anonymous | October 4, 2011 2:55 PM

it was a weaker line up, no doubt about it.
and if you had ever attended kutchers you must have noticed the differences in sound, crowds, security and the general vibe.
i really wanna go back to the catskills and will wait for the final line up to be published before i ever buy a weekend pass again. and just that you understand, i was the first person to buy it this year.

Posted by ME | October 4, 2011 2:57 PM

not one attractive woman.

Seriously, BPB really does look like the creepy perv guy from down the road that everyone knows something is really off with, right?

Posted by Anonymous | October 4, 2011 2:59 PM

@2:57(1) - You seem like a decent person but you should have just bought a one-day ticket to Saturday.

@2:57(2) - Not true. The same drunken floozy from the Kutchers years was there...only this year, she somehow got her hands on a harmonica.

chavez was brilliant and too short a set!!! BOB WESTON needs to stop being such a fat grump every single time i see him, what a total fucktard. SHELLAC, as a band, was amazing.

Great weekend on all counts , hopefully a return to Asbury Park is in the works. Congrats ATP !

@3:54 sorry to burst your bubble but Williamsburg isn't any better. Except at a holding pen for wannabees like yourself.

Posted by Anonymous | October 4, 2011 4:05 PM

Chavez did a killer job! Not just wiping down the wheel wells but also vacuuming under the mats and spraying that fresh breeze smell. They totally earned the $3 tip!

Yeah, the ATP dudes usually have pretty impeccable taste, so it was real disappointing to see them fall for CULTS

Cults sort of blow, but if it helped sell a few tickets, I'm not going to begrudge Barry for taking them on. At least they're better than The Horrors.

Factory floor was good but the sound had no bass for some reason. While there was plenty of bass for onieda.

Chavez pretty much played all of Gone Glimmering, and a couple off of Ride the Fader, including Unreal is Here and I think Tight Around the Jaws. Agreed it was really short, but I was sitting in the back straight on with the stage in the stands, and from back there, the sound was awful...very muddy and bassy. I'm curious to hear how the sound was for people who were standing closer to the stage. I thought the Album Leaf sounded fantastic in the Paramount Theater, so I was disappointed in the sound in the Convention Hall from Chavez and what I heard of Shellac.
