Thee Silver Mt. Zion @ MHOW in 2010 (more by Brian Reilly)
Canada's Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra will play Le Poisson Rouge in NYC on October 6th, four days after they hit Asbury Park for ATP's I'll Be Your Mirror event. Tickets for the LPR show are on sale. Thee Silver Mount Zion also hits MA & CT while they're on the road. All dates are listed below...
Portishead @ Coachella 2008 (more by Ryan Muir)
The number of bands playing NYC before or after ATP NJ in Asbury Park is multiplying. We've recently mentioned that Shellac play The Bell House and that Anika, whose album was produced by Geoff Barrow of Portishead, plays LPR (it will be her first US live show).
It's now been announced that Portishead, who co-curated and headline the NJ festival, as promised, will follow ATP with a North American tour that kicks off on October 4 and 5 at Hammerstein Ballroom!!! Tickets for all dates are on presale now! Tickets "go on sale to the general public July 15th and 16th, with the exception of Chicago, on sale date July 22nd."
According to Adrian Utley, "We've always thought that we must come back to tour in the states, something we wanted to do with the release of Third, but our schedule just wouldn't allow it. Being that we were asked to curate I'll be your Mirror, this just seemed like a good start to touring the states - it set's it off in absolutely the right way. We are absolutely delighted to come back."Portishead last visited North America to play Coachella in 2008, but never came east. Geoff Barrow's band BEAK> did play here in 2010 though, also around an ATP appearance.
Though it's hard to want a show to be at Roseland or Hammerstein, it's too bad they didn't choose Roseland for old time's sake. All new dates will be opened by Thought Forms (who opened for Portishead in Utrecht on 6/15).
All tour dates are listed below...
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.Say that all three times fast. All three day pass options are still on sale. More details on all ATP ticket options are below.
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."
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 email@example.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)...
Updated ATP flyer
"Can we assume they'll be added to ATP, which starts a few days after the Bklyn date?," asked a commenter in the comments of our post announcing the Swans show at Music Hall of Williamsburg, and that commenter was dead on.
ATP NJ (aka "Ill Be Your Mirror") has updated its previously announced lineup to include Swans, Peanut Butter Wolf (who will be DJing), Battles, Deerhoof, Jim Thirwell's Manorexia, and Oneida (who will again perform in Ocropolis formation, like in 2009) "ONEIDA PRESENTS THE OCROPOLIS III which will take place at the Asbury Lanes Bowling Alley - the band will perform continuously throughout the day, sometimes with guests from the rich array of musicians also performing in the festival, sometimes alone and mostly improvised."
Though 3-day passes for the Asbury Park Fest, which include your only shot at seeing Jeff Mangum, are sold out (now called the Jeff Mangum Three Day Pass), tickets are still available in multiple incarnations for the three day celebration, including a new "Portishead Three Day Pass" which allows "passholders to see everything else from Friday-Sunday as well as giving priority access with the day pass holders to BOTH Portishead shows on Saturday and Sunday" (the pass doesn't include entry into Jeff Mangum). The "Portishead Three Day Pass" will go on sale at 10AM EST Thursday (4/21) and individual day passes are currently on sale. The versions of the 3-day pass that are sold out only guarantee you one night of Portishead. "Existing Day ticketholders or Jeff Mangum Three Day pass holders who wish to switch to a Portishead Three Day Pass should contact ATP via firstname.lastname@example.org before May 30th."
The current lineup is below.
Shepard Fairey is also DJing the event on Sunday
ATP Asbury Park ("I'll Be Your Mirror") has released the second wave of artist announcements including many of Portishead's choices for the bill! We already knew about Jeff Mangum, Bonnie Prince Billy, Shellac, Chavez and more. New additions include, not surprisingly, Portishead-related acts Anika and Beak> (and this time Anika will be performing live and not just DJing). There's also now a rare reunion of The Pop Group, an Ultramagnetic MC's reunion (WITH Kool Keith), Silver Qluster (Simeon of Silver Apples and Hans-Joachim Roedelius of Cluster/Harmonia), Thee Siliver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra, Mogwai, Earth, The Horrors and more. The full list is below.
More details, a bigger Shepard Fairey-designed poster, and the full schedule below...
"ATP Concerts are very excited to present the return of Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum to headline and curate one of two festival weekends planned for December 2011 at Butlins, Minehead. After releasing what is now one of the most loved and critically acclaimed albums of the 1990s (In The Aeroplane Over The Sea), Neutral Milk Hotel disbanded before many of those who now love their albums had a chance to see the songs performed live, so Jeff's much anticipated return to the live stage this year will no doubt be a very special occasion for fans throughout the UK and worldwide.Ok, so Jeff is playing two Wordless Music shows in September followed by two NJ Portishead ATP-related shows at the end of September and the beginning of October (both sold out), and now at least two shows at his very own ATP in the UK in December. More shows are sure to come.
As well as headlining, Mangum will choose around 40 acts to play across the weekend on three indoor stages with a total festival capacity of around 5500 people. Mangum will perform more than once in the more intimate Centre Stage venue, although entry to only one show is guaranteed - he will be performing a solo acoustic set."
Jeff's initial UK lineup (listed below) includes A Hawk and A Hacksaw who (also contain a Neutral Milk Hotel member and) are also on the lineup with Jeff in NJ.
The full initial UK ATP lineup and more details below...
Not surprisingly (since they were down to less than 25, 5 hours ago), all 3-day passes to I'll Be Your Mirror USA, taking place in Asbury Park, NJ from Sept 30 - Oct 2, 2011, are sold out. All tickets to see the October 3rd Jeff Mangum show are gone too, so that means all the Mangum tickets are gone since only 3-day pass holders can get into Mangum's Friday show. If you want to see the rest of Friday, or Saturday (Portishead) or Sunday (Portishead), grab one-day passes on either SeeTickets or Ticketmater before those sell out too (let's see if they all disappear as fast as Coachella's did)
Jeff Mangum is not the only member of Neutral Milk Hotel playing the fest (though he may be the only one singing the band's songs). A Hawk & a Hacksaw (NMH's Jeremy Barnes) is also on the Friday lineup so far. A Hawk and a Hacksaw are releasing a new album, "Cervantine" (pictured above), via their own label L.M. DUPLI-CATION on February 18th. In March they'll tour the west coast before heading to Europe. All of their non-NJATP dates are below...
'I'll Be Your Mirror USA' is not the only 'I'll Be Your Mirror' that Portishead is curating for ATP. As previously mentioned, the English band is also helping pick the bands for the event happening in London in July (tickets still on sale by the way).
So far we don't know any of the bands that will open for Portishead in NJ in October, but it would be crazy if they didn't have at least a few of the same bands on both. This is who they have on the UK one so far: PJ HARVEY (also playing Coachella), DOOM, COMPANY FLOW, THE BOOKS (played ATP NY 2010), FACTORY FLOOR, BEAK> (played ATP NY 2010), DD/MM/YYYY, GRINDERMAN, SWANS, BEACH HOUSE, LIARS, THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC, ANIKA, and S.C.U.M. The full UK lineup so far, is listed by day below...
This was actually posted by ATP on Friday, but probably still all true:
The Jeff Mangum show at the Paramount Theatre is now sold out.Remember, only people with 3 day passes get to go to the Mangum show on Friday, and only people with separate Mangum Monday tickets get to go to Mangum on Monday. 3 day pass holders need to choose between seeing Portishead either Saturday or Sunday (though depending on capacity I suppose some lucky people will get to go to both). There doesn't seem to be a way to stop people who buy Saturday and Sunday day passes from seeing Portishead both nights though. Tickets went on sale Friday morning.
Three Day passes and Day passes are selling fast and the ticket sites are going slow due to the number of visitors so if it doesn't work first time please be patient and try again, or try phoning! Thanks for your understanding. On Seetickets you will know your order was successful when you get email confirmation.
Here are the correct ticket links to use for today's on-sale at 9am EST. Tickets will be limited to 4 per order per ticket type so please bear this in mind and if you need more than that try to get a friend to do a separate order.
Please note 3 day passes are only on Seetickets...
Three Day Passes - SEETICKETS
Please be advised that each site has a different allocation of tickets, so if tickets say they are sold out on one ticket agent, check out the other!
If you want to try phoning for tickets the numbers are:
Ticketmaster - 0844 844 0444

Updated I'll Be Your Mirror USA lineup (they added a couple names since the initial announcement) below....
According to a December 23rd tweet by Portishead's Geoff Barrow, Portishead are "doing some split headline shows with arcade fire next year , I'm really looking forward to it..proper band!!" That won't be the promised U.S. Portishead tour though as Geoff later explained "What i mean is that We will be playing with AF at some point next year it's not a tour though!! Sorry." and "The shows with AF are festivals in Europe or I think they are? Hope that helps!" Oh well, I think (stay tuned for the rest of the American dates when they are announced though).
As reported by Pitchfork, "there's going to be more [Jeff Mangum] shows scheduled in the future." Stay tuned for that too.
2 of these men will share a stage in the New Year (more)
Before you really do the math, the idea is staggering: one member of Neurosis, one member of Saint Vitus, half of Shrinebuilder, one member of The Hidden Hand, and one member of Place of Skulls will all bless one stage. Of course the above lineup is really just projects associated with two men, Scott Kelly & Scott "Wino" Weinrich, and they will hit the road for a string of acoustic dates in the new year including Mercury Lounge in NYC on February 10th with Man's Gin. Tickets go on AMEX presale on Wednesday, 12/8 at noon, with regular sale hitting at noon on Friday.
Besides these acoustic-only dates, Wino has only one show on his calendar and that's with Scott Kelly at Roadburn 2011 as part of Shrinebulder. Scott Kelly has plenty of other dates though, as Neurosis will play shows on the West Coast around the New Year and are also scheduled to play Maryland Deathfest 2011. All tour dates are below.
Neurosis played ATP's The Nightmare before Christmas over the weekend along with the reunited Godspeed You! Black Emperor. It was Godspeed's first reunion show and it went on despite concerns about the weather. NYC has to wait until March, but we get five shows. Updated dates below.
Video from ATP (of both bands) and all tour dates below.

Dent May @ BV-CMJ 2009 (more by Chris La Putt)
A few nights earlier, I tried and failed to see Dent May at a late-night show, but I figured I'd give it another shot, so I headed over to the Cake Shop after the BrooklynVegan CMJ show at MHOW Thursday night, and was delighted to see that they were running on schedule. I thought I was tired at that point, but I've got to hand it to Dent May and his friend Bobby for their dedication to the cause. "We drove 20 hours straight to be with you. Our car got towed. We've been threw a lot of shit, and we love it," May said by way of introduction. A quick look at Bobby's zombie-like stare as he sat, waiting for the show to start, revealed just how tired he was. In addition to their lengthy sojourn to New York, it was their last show of the week and the third of the day. Luckily, their music is upbeat and undeniably catchy. When they started to play, they sprang to life, and many of the people in the audience began to dance.
Dent May doesn't have any more dates on his schedule, but he is on the lineup of the just-announced All Tomorrow's Parties curated by Animal Collective taking place May 13th-15th at at Butlins Holiday Centre in Minehead, UK. Full initial lineup announcement below...
words & photos by BBG
I'd like to think that the washes of green lights after projected flames on stage during Sleep's headlining set Friday night were indicative of the band's devotion to the holy leaf, but then again maybe it just looked cool. Either way, the band headlined the first night of ATP at Kutshers with co-headliner Iggy & The Stooges, Mudhoney, and The Scientists each playing classic material as part of the festival's Don't look Back series. Kutshers hasn't changed in the three years that I have attended the festival (not that I would ever expect it to); leaky ceiling tiles, a general musty smell prevails throughout the facility, and most importantly the vibe; I get none of the drag-and-drop feeling of most festivals and their Budweiser-commercial-with-funnel-cakes-and-apply-for-a-credit-card-here-and-did-I-mention-there's-music feeling. There is an openness at Kutshers that isn't easily replicated, much like the performances last night.
After settling in, slid into the Stardust room to catch the opening bars of "Touch Me I'm Sick" as Mudhoney launched directly into Superfuzz Bigmuff (the album they played in full). The record was them at their noisy, unhinged best, and although the feedback and some of the chunkiness in guitar tone was missing, the Seattle band was taut and fantastic live. I unfortunately missed The Scientists who played before them.
Iggy & The Stooges followed, and of my experiences with Iggy, of which there are a few, it's hard to imagine him wilder, more energetic, and more spastic than he was during his Raw Power set. Backed by James Williamson (Ron Asheton RIP), Scott Asheton, Mike Watt and saxophonist Steve Mackay, the band opened with the title track from the record before beating down the capacity crowd with the fantastic "Search & Destroy". Excellent set from these guys. BV photographer Greg Cristman was also in attendance last night, and as a long time fan of the band, he said that the ATP set was more impressive than their Atlantic City outing a few weeks prior. The crowd, who pogo'ed, crowd-surfed, joined the Detroit legends on stage for a dance during "Shake Appeal", and were generally nutty probably added fuel to that fire.
From the opening solo riff of "Dopesmoker", Sleep ruled the Stardust Room, keeping to the electric vibe that Iggy touched on in his set. The room was full of metalheads (more Slayer shirts than Radiohead shirts at ATP Friday night). Matt Pike's tone and power is truly unmatched on the six (or nine) string, and the reunion of the guitar god with the thundering and similarly powerful low-end of Al Cisneros brought to mind their ancestors, Iommi and Butler.
Though original drummer Chris Hakius has retired his drum throne, Neurosis drummer Jason Roeder was no scab; handily backing what is arguably two of the most powerful instrumentalists in current heavy music. Much like it did when My Bloody Valentine played ATP two years ago, the Stardust rattled, though with a low-end power rumble (as opposed to MBV's earshattering and treble-y feedback). Classics like "Dragonaut" and "The Druid" and were intercut with sections of "Dopesmoker", and even the new-ish jam "Anartican's Thought" made an appearance during their two hour set which, for a portion of the crowd, was more punishment than could be handled (the audience thinned as the night went on).
Except for a brief moment when Matt Pike pulled out an acoustic (!) only to be plagued with technical difficulty (for "Some Grass"?), it was powerful, fantastic, and, to borrow an overused term that is totally applicable here, was truly epic. I can't wait to see them again (and again) in the coming week (tickets for the Monday night show are still on sale).
The music kept me from really checking out the Syd Butler-chosen comedians who were performing in another room, though I did run in for a second to see some of Todd Barry.
Lou Barlow on stage with Dinsaur Jr at Bowery (more by Vincent Cornelli)
The previously mentioned Lou Barlow & The Missingmen/Wye Oak tour hits Mercury Lounge TONIGHT (9/1, tickets), one of two NYC-area dates for tour-mates. On Saturday (9/4), the pair will play an early show at Maxwell's (tickets) before the venue hosts The Greenhornes/The Black Hollies later that night (tickets). The Greenhornes play a show at Mercury Lounge while they're here too, and it's free (Greenhornes also play ATP NY over the weekend).
Meanwhile Lou Barlow and the great Dinosaur Jr will play support for a pretty incredible ATP show overseas. The event, which will see them perform Bug in its entirety, will also see Deerhoof play all of Milk Man as support for...
On the 1st July 2011 The Flaming Lips will perform their seminal classic The Soft Bulletin as part of ATP Concerts Don't Look Back season. On the album's release in 1999 it was hailed by critics as 'The Pet Sounds of the 90s', receiving adulation from fans and writers alike, topping many year end charts and spawning two classic singles ('Waiting For A Superman', 'Race For The Prize') and going on to influence countless bands. In 2003 Pitchfork placed the album as the third best album of the 1990s alongside Radiohead's OK Computer and My Bloody Valentine's Loveless.I knew it was just a matter of time before it happened. For those of you willing to hop the pond, tickets are on sale Friday 9/3 at 10AM.
Speaking of ATP, the countdown to ATP NY is on its last legs, and the festival (that Flaming Lips, Deerhoof and Dinosaur Jr. all played last year or the year before) has announced set times. Raekwon direct support? Sleep headlining OVER Iggy Pop? Discuss/love/hate and check out times below.
Psychic TV at Europa (more by Zach Dilgard)
Genesis P-Orridge is also scheduled to hit the road with Throbbing Gristle in the coming months. The band will play select European Dates including their recently announced appearance at ATP's Nightmare Before Christmas with Godspeed You Black Emperor, Neurosis, Weird Al, and a ton of others. Get yer tix.
Full ATP Nightmare Before Christmas lineup, all Throbbing Gristle dates and some video is below...
Kurt Vile at Brooklyn Masonic Temple (more by Lori Baily)
It's almost final and official, ATP New York is ruling. The best Hudson Valley festival to ever be held in a 1960s time capsule has announced the "final additions" including two comedians chosen by Syd Butler of Les Savy Fav (more to come... that's all "so far"), as well as a few new and interesting additions to the Jim Jarmusch curated date. Behold:
DOWNLOAD: Teenage Fanclub - Baby Lee (MP3)
"Dogged adherents of the "if it ain't broke" philosophy of music, the Glaswegian quartet have been plying their own brand of harmony-laden guitar pop for two decades and little changes here. Pedestrian? Yes. Derivative? Certainly. But an alchemy exists within the band allowing them to find something newly life-affirming in the most well-worn elements of their Byrds-indebted sound. Current single "Baby Lee" might be twee but boasts a melody so sunny it could persuade grown men to skip down the street. And among this record's bittersweet pleasures, drowsy closer "Today Never Ends" is porch music of a timeless kind." [Guardian]Teenage Fanclub's new album, Shadows, was just released overseas in Europe (where they're touring at the moment in support of it). Merge Records puts the album out in the U.S., on June 8th (the last day of their UK tour). Download "Baby Lee" for free above.
In July and August, Teenage Fanclub will play some European festivals. In December they play the Belle & Sebastian-curated "Bowlie 2" ATP in Minehead. Before that they join their fellow Scots for a show in Brooklyn (and maybe a TBA tour?).
Anonymous pointed out that Matador is hosting their 21st anniversary festival in Las Vegas from October 1-3. That makes it seem very likely that Belle & Sebastian will play that too while they're visiting. Las Vegas Weekly reports...
...the host venue appears to be the Pearl at the Palms, according to a source with inside knowledge. And, yes, Pavement is set to headline, a figure close to the band has confirmed; the just-reunited '90s alt-luminaries play LA's Hollywood Bowl on Thursday, September 30, and will perform in Vegas that weekend... Oh, also on that Hollywood Bowl bill? The legendary Sonic Youth, whose latest album, 2009's The Eternal, was released by, ahem, Matador Records. Hmm...Teenage Fanclub's album tracklist and dates below...
"After years of inactivity, the Canadian post-rock juggernaut known as Godspeed You! Black Emperor is rumbling back to life.The full note is posted below...
The first order of business: curating and headlining ATP's Nightmare Before Christmas, taking place at Butlins Holiday Centre in Minehead, England December 3-5. Other acts performing include Deerhoof, Mike Watt, the Ex, Tim Hecker, Scout Niblett, and Bardo Pond.
Then: In a note on their website, Godspeed promise a tour consisting of "a handful of British and European shows, and then nine American shows." And that's it... for now. As they say, "Until further introspection, WE WILL NOT BE FIELDING ANY OTHER OFFERS." They also aren't doing any interviews, so don't ask." [Pitchfork]
Make sure you're somewhere comfortable, preferably heavily sedated in a large comfortable bed (or at least reclining), and check out the new Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions video below...
Boris @ ATP NY 2009 (more by Ryan Muir)
There aren't many music news items that get me excited as ATP lineup additions. This one is no different. Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions, Torotoise, Bardo Pond, Beak> featuring Geoff Barrow of Portishead, Sleepy Sun, Avi Buffalo, Sunn O)) & Boris performing material from their collaborative album Altar, Dungen, and White Hills have all been added to the already-stellar bill of the 2010 festival at Kutsher's Country Club in Monticello, NY (Sept 3-5). All confirmed artists and more details below...
All Tomorrow's Parties will return to Kutsher's Country Club, Monticello for the third ATP New York festival over Labor Day weekend, running from Friday 3rd September - Sunday 5th September. We are very excited to announce that legendary film-maker Jim Jarmusch, well known for his fantastic collaborations and documentaries with musicians will be the guest curator on Sunday 5th.Jim as curator is not completely surprising since he took part in the 2009 fest as well. Bigger posters, more info on the 2010 fest, and the updated lineup is below!...
DROP OUT OF LIFE WITH BONG IN HAND......
BrooklynVegan: A lot of your US fans are wondering why [Sleep] aren't doing a US tour or even a show in San Francisco and NYC. Whats the reasoning? Is that mostly due to Chris?I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Kutscher's is going to need a fumigator and a team with some SERIOUS HVAC experience. Sleep has announced that they will perform all of Holy Mountain at ATP New York 2010, right beside Iggy & the Stooges performing Raw Power, Mudhoney doing Superfuzz Bigmuff + Early Singles and The Scientists (their first ever US show) who will preform all of Blood Red River!!!
Sleep's Matt Pike: I think the dude just wants to retire.... He lives up in the hills and he's got a lot going on... I don't think the rock lifestyle is really for him. Chris is really a "to himself" kind of guy... he's an awesome guy and an awesome drummer. But yeah, I don't think that's the lifestyle he wants... and me and Al... both of us are obviously lifers. But he still wanted to [reunited Sleep for shows in Europe] genuinely to wrap up what we started so long ago... and for our fans. I mean we played Jerusalem as Dopesmoker for a long time on tour, but people didn't even get into it until we broke up.
To continue our year-long celebrations of Ten Years of ATP we are thrilled to announce that All Tomorrow's Parties will return to Kutsher's Country Club, Monticello for it's third ATP New York festival over Labor Day weekend, running from Friday 3rd September - Sunday 5th September. Weekend and Day Tickets are available, with a Layaway Ticket option available. [ATP]The "Iggy & The Stooges" lineup (as opposed to The Stooges) means the addition of James Williamson back into the fold, who Iggy collaborated with on Raw Power, Kill City, and New Values. The Raw Power announcement isn't much of a surprise, as Iggy let it slip last month.
Al Cisneros of Sleep/Om recently played NYC as part of Shrinebuilder along with Rwake and Liturgy. Pics from that show are here. Matt Pike of Sleep also played NYC recently, as part of High On Fire. Dig on pics from that show here and here.
Another flyer, more info on this year's fest, and some videos from the Sleep reunion in the UK are below...

"To celebrate the Yeah Yeah Yeahs coming up to ten years of being a band and also of course our 10th birthday- at Ten Years Of ATP the band will play a special performance of debut album Fever To Tell as the first part of their show. This is unique to ATP and will not be what they are performing on the rest of their tour."Ten Years of ATP", taking place in Minehead in December, is sold out.
In other news we're very happy to confirm that David Pajo's Papa M performance will consist of the 1999 classic Live From A Shark Cage album (another ten year anniversary!)." [ATP]
Yeah Yeah Yeahs are playing a Verizon DROID launch party at Angel Orensanz in NYC on Friday (11/6). It's free, but you need to go through some hoops to get tickets.
