ATP 2010: Curated By Matt Groening @ Butlin’s Holiday Centre, Minehead, UK

ATP NY Announces Curation By Jim Jarmusch, Adds Sonic Youth And The Breeders

Based on past experience, New York’s All Tomorrow’s Parties has become the festival you buy tickets for lineup-unseen. But for those who need to know, ATP just expanded the lineup of bands for this year’s Weekend At Kutsher’s: Saturday will include heavyweights Sonic Youth and the Breeders, as well as ATP favs Explosions In The… More »

10 Years Of ATP In Photos

When the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival first launched, the idea of canonizing an iconic album with a track-for-track live performance was still a novel concept. A decade later the album-recreation bit has become another salable gimmick for non-ATP acts trading on nostalgia to line their post-prime coffers, and even ATP has on occasion conferred the… More »

Stooges, Sleep Set For ATPNY 2010

Over Labor Day weekend (9/3-9/5) Iggy and his Stooges do Raw Power, Sleep climb Holy Mountain (!), and you’ll spot Mudhoney’s Superfuzz Bigmuff at good ol’ Kutsher’s. More at ATP. More »

Stereogum Spends The Weekend At ATP NY

ATP was the year’s finest festival. We’ve already covered that. But the band performances are only half the (All Tomorrow’s) party. For a weekend, the mountain resort that inspired Dirty Dancing is a surreal estate, overrun by music-heads and artists; everyone’s in the same boat (some literally in boats), enjoying the same kitschy diversions. You’ll… More »

ATP NY 2009: Wayne’s World

Our second year at Kutsher’s was rainier than the first, but that didn’t matter so much to us or, seemingly, the other attendees: If anything, this year felt more celebratory (and debauched) than 2008. You wouldn’t be faulted for noting a certain hippie vibe. Visually, there were the tie-dyed shirts and hoodies (purchased at the… More »

ATP Rocks The Catskills This Weekend

ATP NY was our favorite festival of 2008, and the only one all three Stereogum staffers attended. The draw? Partially the lineup, of course, but also the fact that it takes place in the hotel that inspired Dirty Dancing’s summer of ’63 Catskill romance and clearly hasn’t been remodeled since said inspiring. (If that doesn’t… More »

Sufjan, SFA Added To ATP NY

Sufjan Stevens, who should stop being so lazy and put out Welcome To New Jersey, Fuggedaboutit! already, will play his first proper US show in two years at the Lips-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties on 9/12. (He’s at Pop Montreal a week prior.) Also added: Shellac, Circulatory System, Crystal Castles, Super Furry Animals, and Boris. DetailsMore »

Iron & Wine, Boss Hog, Boredoms Added to ATP NY

The Flaming Lips-curated ATP NY line-up gets some additions today, including sexy old timers Boss Hog, along with Boredoms performing Boredrum 2009, two different “Deer” bands, and No Age doing a complete Hüsker Dü LP with a guest vocalist (wonder who that is?). Updates at ATP. More »

Flaming Lips Curating, Playing ATP NY 2009

On first glance ATP NY ’09s curators aren’t nearly (nearly) as exciting as MBV in ’08, but you will get to catch Suicide performing their 1977 first album and the ATP-curated night includes Animal Collective, Black Dice, Panda Bear, Atlas Sound, etc. No word yet on who the Lips select, but we’re sure they’ll come… More »

ATP NY ’09 Confirms Animal Collective, Atlas Sound, Suicide, And David Cross

Although we still don’t know who’ll be stepping into Kevin Shields’s gazey shoes as headliner/curator, ATP NY has confirmed an initial round of performers for next year’s party at Kutschers: Animal Collective, Panda Bear, Atlas Sound, Antipop Consortium, Suicide doing Suicide (the first one), Dirty Three doing Ocean Sounds, and David Cross doing David Cross.

ATP NY 2009: The Return To Kutsher’s

Did you miss the sights, sounds and The Shining jokes in Monticello this year? There’s always 2009! The All Tomorrow’s Parties folks have already confirmed a return to the Catskills resort which launched a thousand punchlines and as many good times. The lineup’s a ways off, but the ticket sales start now. More »

All Tomorrow’s Parties NY: Brought To You By My Bloody Valentine’s Favorite Bands

Day last of All Tomorrow’s Parties’ first foray in the great state of New York featured another blockbuster, ’90s-leaning lineup, although this one was extra special: acts hand picked by the triumphantly returning My Bloody Valentine, and evidently proud of it. Each thanked Shields & Co. in their own way, repeatedly, echoing weekend long talk… More »

All Tomorrow’s Parties NY: My Bloody Valentine Reunion – Photos, Video

Kevin Shields was to ATP what King Khan was to Pitchfork Festival, minus the costume changes: In all seriousness, though, we spotted the My Bloody Valentine front man everywhere during our weekend at Kutsher’s, whether posing for photos with adoring fans, checking bands, or just wandering the grounds. We got so used to seeing street-clothe… More »

All Tomorrow’s Parties NY: Polvo, Les Savy Fav, Lightning Bolt Rock The Catskills

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy
After a night of front-to-back ATP-approved “classics,” it was nice to tackle a day of unpredictable sets. We missed the earliest acts — Apse, Australia’s garage rockers (and fine live band) the Drones, Growing, and UK comic artist/eerie finger picking/field recording folk player/onetime Sunn O))) collaborator Alexander Tucker. Once… More »

All Tomorrow’s Parties NY: Kutsher’s Scares, Doug Martsch Wails

By Scott Lapatine & Brandon Stosuy
The hilarious setting for My Bloody Valentine’s first US show in 16 years is a crusty Catskills resort that’s already inspired more than enough The Shining jokes for one weekend. While the facility itself has seen better days — stained carpets, beige tap water, worse — Kutsher’s Country Clu… More »

Gone All Tomorrow’s Partyin’

Sorry to have to do this, and also very psyched to have to do this: Scott, Brandon, and I are piling into a rental car in a few minutes, making the trek from Brooklyn to Monticello to join the welcome wagon for My Bloody Valentine’s first US show in 16 years, at ATP NY thi… More »
