My Bloody Valentine Finally Coming Back To The States, Curating Quite A Party

16 years! It’s been a long time to wait. For some of you it’s probably been a lifetime. All that ends this fall, though, confirmed via tonight’s news that’s caused music bloggers countrywide to faint face first into their keyboards: My Bloody Valentine will curate a New York edition of the estimable All Tomorrow’s Parties concert series with an absolutely absurd lineup for one weekend this September. In addition to MBV’s headlining set, ATP’s claiming full album recreations from Built To Spill (Perfect From Now On), Tortoise (Millions Now Living Will Never Die), and Meat Puppets (Meat Puppets II), and just regular old sets from Shellac, Mogwai, Polvo, Fuck Buttons, Autolux, the Drones, Low, Wooden Shjips, Edan, Thee Silver Mount Zion Orchestra, and we’ll wait for you to regain consciousness.

OK. So as mentioned, this is a one weekend sort of party — Sept. 19-21st at the Kutshers Country Club in Monticello, N.Y. (100 miles from NYC), to be precise — but Billboard and The Daily Swarm report that MBV’s planning out “six to eight additional U.S. cities” at which to gaze. Tickets for APW go on sale Friday 4/25 at ATPFestival.com. Commence freakout.
