who do you think it'll be? i've still got my fingers crossed for Bjork. not gonna happen.
I want to go to Primavera this year. I CAN'T AFFORD BOTH!
Has to be.
but it will probably be someone liek battles or something. not that battles arnt good! its just they wont be exciting as curators.
im hoping for sumone liek bjork also, or maybe something a bit different, liek maybe a label perhaps like warp or something?
they had to pull out of release the bats! u never knwo they might be sorted for next may though
because they haven't the foggiest how to play live without him.
back in the EP B/C EP days? or was he just not singing then?
Tyondai has great taste in music:
I'm hoping for Bjork as well. Haven't got the foggiest idea who it might be though.
bet she'd have loads of other mental stuff going on too. ahhh, if only.
if anything she'd be in danger of unbalancing the whole affair by being a bit on the big side... in any case, she's certainly bigger than Godspeed!, and their December ATP - sold out - is hardly bursting with chart faves..., while you'd think she's probably at least rope in someone like Anthony...
Still, I do think GBV are the most likely.
she's way more populist (right word?) than throbbing gristle. i think she'd get the balance pretty well down between crowd-pullers and awesome smaller acts.
I'm not saying that these things don't exist at ATP- but they're certainly under-represented!
but I don't think women are under-represented at ATP. Did you go to The Breeders one? I think the crowd was about 70% 30-something women.
About 50% of the people I know going are female which is quite odd.
i would definatly go to!
They would have to announce some bands at the same time if it is him.
I know a lot of people who'd flock just because its him. And the music in his films is always amazing.
Fingers crossed for GBV but I dunno if theyre really big enough for their own festival. Though I wouldnt of thought Godspeed you... would be but they were.
A while ago I read an interview with Barry saying he fancied getting Wes Anderson to do one but I doubt it'll be him.
I'm pretty stumped actually ..
and I have long fantasised about ATP getting them to do a secret Don't Look Back on an IRS album, but this would be a disaster, it'd just sell out to older REM fans who weren't arsed about the weekend as a whole, and even getting round that, there's no way you could get them to do an '80s set when they have a new album out. Not entirely sure you were being serious, but I have long fantasised about this...
It'd be like the Portishead weekend.
you're probably right, but I didn't really get that impression at Portishead... certainly Aphex Twin was super busy on Saturday night in particular, Jerry Sadowitz had to do a second show, ditto Fuck Buttons...
Anyway Bangface is that weekend so I shan't be going regardless.
but I wouldn't be surprised if they played an upcoming one.
I'm quite excited to find out even though I'm 90% not going to be going.
Pavement. Seems like everyone thinks it will be them though without any actual sources? Or has someone in The Know suggested it will be?
yeah. i like GBV but i still hope it's not them kind of. hoping for someone more interesting.
Weekend 2: Utah Saints (Headliners- Utah Saints, EMF, the KLF)
I hope Whitetown is DJing.
(Or so my Derby based friends inform me)
I just want someone LOUD. You know what I mean...
A rock band. A post punk outfit. An electro artists. A hip hop posse. Anyone who doesn't play singer songwriter jangly folk music basically.
That'd be aceness.
Then I'll see how the line up is looking and probably go to Primavera...
so, like, every ATP curator for the last x years? ;)
Nah, I've been to all kinds of ATP but the ones which I enjoyed the most were either ones where they had really varied acts (eg. the birthday ones with 3 different curators) or else someone who booked people a bit different from the norm (eg. Autechre and Shellac).
The ones which didn't work so well for me were the ones where the line up was very similar to the main band's sound.
GBV, 90's indie rock fest, as usual, which is actually completely what I love and would go to all day, night and week.
As they are only doing one, it will be slightly weirder as they know they can probably sell one out regardless of the size of curator. This would arguably be much better.
Either way, I am in.
However, GBV is my best bet.
Put your money on it (/onlywononebetin2010)
Certainly a lot more than GBV anyhow.
Why is everyone so sure it's them anyhow? New album due? Playing Primavera? You're all in the band?
90's indie rock darlings reformed and playing shows again. Perfect ATP credentials.
(GBV tribute band)
I would so love the Sub Pop one to happen. But I've been saying this for about eight years and still not got any joy. 'Bout time Barry listened to my insane ramblings, that's what I'm saying.
I’m kind of indifferent about them curating, to be honest.
I think that Bjork would be too big an artist, to be honest, and the problem with that is that you get people (usually late 30-something couples) going for the headliner alone (see the Portishead TNBC weekend). Having said that, she’d pull in some awesome other acts, like Chris Corsano, LFO, Leila etc., etc.
I always thought that Chicks On Speed would be able to pull a good line up together, even if they themselves couldn’t drive ticket sales.
I suppose my dream of having Erol Alkan do it has kind of passed, what with the advent of weekenders like Bangface and stuff.
they're on Warp. Mark Bell played all the fun bits of kit on Bjork's last Volta tour.
that they may do UK dates next year: http://www.lasvegasweekly.com/news/2010/sep/30/guided-by-voices-tobin-sprout/ though not sure whether that will mean curating ATP. It would be awesome if they would just play one, or anywhere in the UK, you know... I think it would work. They got the best reception by far at the Matador weekend: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/music_blog/2010/10/matador-at-21-night-3-guided-by-voices-yo-la-tengo.html
1. The line up was thin for Pavement because Pavement cost so much to book. That wouldn't be the same with GBV.
2. Pavement was a true and proper ATP, where the bands on were truly picked by the artist curating - guys they were at school with! Friends from Stockton! Not just Shellac and Sonic Youth! Okay, in terms of names (and arguably quality) it was undoubtedly thin, but fucking Pavement were on!
For everything ATP do to annoy me, they delivered Pavement to a holiday camp in Somerset, and for that I will always love them (a bit, at least).
You can't, on the one hand slag off ATP for every line up being the same, then slag them off for letting a band pick a load of their mates and old punk dudes from when they were at school. That's what curating is.
I have always been highly sceptical in the past about who really picks the line ups, but the Pavement one was 100% proof it is the curator (or was in their case). Some thread on here saying otherwise is just balls. Why would the organisers pick those bands, when they probably could have got better ones?!
Surfer Blood also told the story of malkmus phoning them up to book them.
such a heartless performance
Depends on your view.
therefore not afraid to accept that the performance pavement gave that weekend was one done by a band who did not want to be there.
and i a) thought they were going to be boring as hell and drawn out for way to long and b) am not the biggest pavement fan
PS Ho are GBV?
Guided by voices were garage size when they split up?
Maybe a second stage headliner like Jesus Lizard, but curator? They'd be lucky.
"Matt Groening as curator? He'd be shit on the main stage!"
I am long term believer that the curator shouldn't have to be the bigest band on the bill.
*crosses fingers* pleasenotmogwaitpleasenotmogwai
saying they aren't....
Have they curated before?
we knew someone would guess after we promoted this
so why are they all suddenly curating and stuff?
Fever Ray please. actually no, i don't want it to be anyone that will make me want to go, I can't aford it.
i still doubt i'll be ble to scrape enough readies wonga together though :(
i know he did the oz one already, but matt groening did the US one before having a go over here.
withe every other being off-shoots and side projects from GBV's billions of members
i would very much like for the notwist, 13&god and lali puna. so just have the acher brothers curate. fanx
As i don't know when my essays will be in the summer.
so they don't play abroad?
I dearly hope this is not the case, and if not, then I can't wait for them to play Primavera. Not really bothered about ATP.
going to be an atp new york again next year
I'll pitch the idea to ATP...
but still went over to Vegas to see them :)
Yeah looking like even if they don't do ATP there's a distinct possibilities of GBV dates over here. Tobin Sprout mentions it in a Las Vegas Weekly interview for the Matador bash.
just to stir the pot
would be a good call.
I mean imagine the craziness the E.N. lot could get up to. Especially in light of Oneida setting up camp.
theyre on Sub pop now, maybe it'll be a sub pop weekend.
their roster is maybe the strongest it's been in years. i've actually been able to buy records in the last month and maybe half of what i've bought has been recent stuff on t'pop. avi buffalo, ruby suns, no age, the vaselines, male bonding, dum dum girls...
and he's picked Mogwai as one of the headliners. He made some reference to ATP at some gig recently and started tongues wagging about Arab Strap being at the Bowlie weekender but he really meant the May ATP. He's also the grouchy one in that rumour (admittedly started by grouchland). On top of that Aidan Moffat is investing in a prawn farm and needs the dosh.
Either that or it's actually grouchland curating it. So headliner will probably be Madonna or Beyonce in a brave breakaway from the usual ATP bands.
Can we expect an introduction to prawn cultivation in Reds on Sunday afternoon?
plz. In fact, just anyone who didn't musically peak over a decade ago.
not sure what to say to this. thanks? i'm afraid i don't think i can ever love someone who spells my name wrong though, sorry :D
the same day they play my town, class
that it's going to be Quentin Tarrantino
He likes Clinic. I bet Ron Howard doesn't like Clinic.
so it all evens out
i'm literally not on the edge of my seat!!!!!!!
I love Bob to death but I never got the impression that he was interested in contemporary music. I think this was also a problem with Pavement. I've seen Malkmus interviewed and being asked about current bands he was into and I think he'd reached that (very common) midlife stage where he wasn't listening to new music anymore.
In which numerous Britpop bands reform and play the main stage for as long as possible before being bottled off.
Featuring a DJ set from Johnny Dean behind a police cordon.
would involve no bands being booked and extra arcade machines being brought in to all the venues.
the curators haven't been mentioned in this thread yet, well at least as far as I can see.
ATP vs The Letter K
Kings of Leon
Hang on, I might have accidently just leaked the Glastonbury and V line ups for 2011-2020
Don't Look Back of the album 'K'
Can you give us a hint?
Revolver : playing the whole of their classic " cold water flat " album.
Other acts :
...apologies. My compuer runs Windows 3.1 and is not too current.
swans have just reformed, they're the right sort of size to headline, and there's an immediate connection to all the acts on Young God. aiden moffat sounds like a good guess too.
GANG GANG DANCE
LEE SCRATCH PERRY
ARIEL PINK'S HAUNTED GRAFFITI
MEAT PUPPETS performing Up On The Sun
THE FROGS performing It's Only Right & Natural
THE BROTHERS UNCONNECTED
SUBLIME FREQUENCIES DJs + Films
But that's an interesting first set of bands.
*puts debit card away*
is the 2nd one being announced today?
ok. probably exam period anyway.
Well, if that’s the curator and that’s the calibre of acts that will be playing, then I think I’ll be giving it a miss.
I'm sure there'll be a chance to see Shellac/Deerhunter/Sonic Youth then.
Just because I’m not a big fan of Animal Collective and have seen most of the early line-up already, doesn’t mean that I want the regular ATP staples.
also vladislaw delay
Some PROPER dance music at ATP :)
I dunno, sounds a bit too 'bloggy' for me.
How so? The only remotely 'bloggy' bits on there would be Ariel Pink, Gang Gang and Black Dice, and that's not to their detriment.
if such a thing exists (i.e. I think that you've used the term to make the distinction between dance music that people listen to in sweaty basement clubs and the kind of beat-friendly stuff listened to by hipsters).
so basically just Omar-S who is definitely sweaty basement club music.
and he's started showing up to a couple of things here and there
I don't think it's any more or less full of 'proper' dance music than other ATPs.
(this isn’t necessarily a criticism of ATP)
i'm not sure it's chock-a-block. but a token two dance djs is better than listening to Prayer to God at 2 in the morning, right?
i can't think of recent atp that's had a dance dj on the actual bill at all, even the Matt Groening line-up. And certainly there hasn't been someone of the stature of Omar-S...maybe you'd have Four Tet or someone but altho he's dancier these days, he's always seen as more connected to indie/ambient stuff and in terms of playing his own productions and altering them live, he's maybe not what would traditionally be thought of as a full-on 'dance dj' in the way Omar-S is I don't think....maybe someone might come along and take objection to that tho, idk.
i do know what you mean about bloggy to some extent and it is offputting that a lot of the official announcement is made up of their friends/label-mates etc. but hopefully once it get's past that, we'll see some more exciting choices...and probably/hopefully some more 'proper dance'.
but I wasn't in the mood for it, due to illness. SAD TIMES.
and yeh, i'd love to see him there as well.
Its a very tasty first set of acts, but not a lot I've not seen before. And I'm sure Gang Gang etc will do London gigs. Bangface wins I reckon.
Think this might turn out to be another one where I quite like the lineup but not the curators.
that's a pretty good line-up.
Still won't go though.
it was inevitable they'd curate it one day... the first set of acts looks pretty good.. this could be the more electronic/dancey atp some people have been whinging about the lack of for a long time
can't go next year though.. boo
Shellac won't play again.
Not too 'safe', some stuff that people wouldn't normally go and see and a whole load of stuff that they would. Excited about Broadcast (missed them at the Groening one), Omar-S, Vladislav Delay and the Sublime Frequencies goodies (Group Doueh/Brothers Unconnected).
People dance, a lot.
"No, I haven't, and I'll thank you not to challenge my prejudices."
He just likes to moan about it. It's funny if you realise he's not actually trolling, but rather speaking from a position of complete ignorance.
the indie DJs but whenever I've seen a hiphop or dance DJ/act at ATP there's sod all people dancing. You might get a handful of people at the front dancing but the rest are usually arms folded and stock still - hopefully this won't be the case with this one.
Which ones? Every time Madlib dropped something well known the crowd loved it at the Breeders one. Just a shame he fucked it up (oh, you don't KNOW this one?) but that wasn't because it was hip-hop. Ditto EPMD, Ghostface - really up for it crowds. The late night DJs worked really well at the Autechre one (different crowd maybe). James Blake got a brilliant reaction at Green Man this year, people are more open-minded to 'dance' music than you think.
I think people would love something that you can dance to up in the main room. It's soul-destroying hearing exactly the same DJ's in Crazy Horse playing I Fought the Law or Legal Man and that place is rarely rammed.
Autechre one sadly or went to the ones with the acts you mentioned. I'm thinking of times seeing Edan DJ to half a dozen people and then the floor fills up when the next DJ comes on playing old garage rock tunes, or the reaction to Fuck Buttons techno direction at ATP vs the Fans2, or the meagre crowd for Various Production DJing. From memory, there was only a small group of people at the front dancing for Hot Chip and !!! too. Maybe it's just the ones I've attended (or I'm comparing it unfairly to other events I've been to) but it's always one of my annoyances; I'm always up for some decent dance music after hours but there's either no atmosphere or like you say, the same DJs playing the same tunes. Judging from the initial picks this time, it'll likely be different this time around which is all good.
that's because it was awful?
also, !!! were on at like 6pm or something. they should've been on late. I remember Holy Fuck, Battles and Aphex getting the crowd going in the late slots.
but I think Hot Chip you've maybe got to excuse on grounds of it being both rammed and beyond boiling. Aphex Twin got a good crows, maybe took a while to warm up, mind, but it all clicked into place.. ditto Holy Fuck, Squarepusher, Glass Candy, Omar Souleyman, MANY MORE.
I think there is the issue that it's not a dance festival per se, and I guess at 6pm there might not be people wanged off their tits desperate to dance. I agree that some of the less electronic festival can have the Crazy Horse as the sole dancing outlet, but I think generally if you put a dance band on at 11pm+, the crowds will come.
It used to be really busy, especially on the last night, and the DJing used to be fun - Indie Hits, sure, but done well. Maybe it's because the music goes on later now? I dunno. It's a shame. I liked the late night Crazy Horse times.
the DJing stops a little earlier, and the fact that the final band of the night is rarely the headliner. Couple these with the fact that I also think that the festival is getting older, and you end up in a situation where people head back to their chalets after the headliner for an early night.
(plus there are more venues than just the Queen Vic, and people's apartments are a little less communal and more spread out, which doesn't really help to prevent the place feeling a little empty).
You get people slumped around the centre stage looking like it's a chore to stay up and then crazy scheduling like an hour of Stars of the Lid before Battles. I wish they would put on DJs between the later acts (like Field Day) to create an atmosphere and really think about who people want to see at 1am.
I've said it before but watching a band and 'watching' a DJ are totally different things, the latter is more sociable, it's okay to talk to your friends and the attention isn't focussed on what's going on on the stage. That's what people need after midnight. So often I've wanted to see something at 2am but there's nothing to do for an hour and a half, Legal Man is playing in Crazy Horse again and, lo, we call it a night. Us ATP oldies (32) are a fickle bunch.
Also there will never be as much dancing at ATP as, say, Bloc. How many people are dancing beyond, say, 8-10 metres from the stage for any act at ATP? Even the most danceable guitar acts. That's no reason to shy away from putting electronic or hip-hop stuff on. Maybe the post-midnight slot on centre stage could be curator-free?
but, it's same weekend as The Great Escape and that tends to fit a bit more to my tastes so it's a no go for me, just hope Angel plays in London whilst over here.
off the top of my head, 4.
GANG GANG DANCE
ARIEL PINK'S HAUNTED GRAFFITI
I think only Broadcast, and maybe Black Dice have played more than one before) but who cares? Now find me a festival that's been going for 10 years with completely different lineup each time.
you should of said something.
why would I shout 'have'?
that Omar S is the Detroit DJ.
and others who've mostly played once, in some cases many years ago in different eras. Yep, 2/3rds of acts making debuts at a festival that's run about 40 times in the last decade. If that's repetition, I'd like to see a music festival that can re-invigorate at a better rate than that.
You've got a point about Shellac/Sonic Youth/etc appearing too frequently, but it just doesn't stretch to the overall claim you're trying. But that's okay because you're only interested in aggravation rather than evidence.
Lukowski's right. The Frogs played the Breeders one. Plus the 7 I listed above (Spectrum were at the MBV one)
though Animal Collective and Black Dice have played US ones as well as one UK one apiece.
Broadcast, Ariel Pink, Gang Gang, Meat Puppets and the The Frogs have all played one each.
Think other 12 acts all first timers.
Broadcast played the 2001 Tortoise one and the Groening one last year.
Though I don't remember seeing them.
my standard response to the words 'animal collective'
but the rest of the lineup is a total non-meh extravaganza.
i just get sad when AC are involved in things because I imagine dayglo Skins fans and students who have just got into 'alternative' music. </snob>
then i lold
and then suddenly they made an accessible album and suddenly EVERYONE had an opinion on them and suddenly they weren't cool they were SKINS AND DAYGLO
but at the end of the day, if you're going to write off this entire festival based on one band and a lame assumption, you probably are less fun to party with than someone in some wacky plastic sunglasses
loads of annoying youngun plastic sunglasses hipster talk-through-every-band's-set 'like' animal collective. my concern is that this demographic will see animal collective's name, buy tickets and act like cunts throughout the weekend. i'm not writing off the festival - i quite like animal collective's music. i like ATP.
not even Pitchfork.
but only so I can take photos to put on Facebook of me harassing acts I heard about through NME.
My ATP cynicism has dissipated slightly. An Animal Collective fest was never going to be full of obvious picks (apart from GGD and Ariel Pink) so it's good to see what kind of shape it's going to take.
I like them but I dont love them. Will have to see what the Primavera line up looks like.
Also what this "I'll be your mirror" thing, next summer somewhere in the UK ?
there's already people taking it too seriously
although it costs so much i guess you have to
then i remember that it's about a million degrees outside in the summer in barcelona. and i buy tickets to go to minehead in december.
for FIVE MINUTES
i dare you
Infact it is freezing at night when you're by the sea and it is windy. You end up sleeping all day and miss the sun. And it's in May, and not as warm as July.
Because I'm in favour of that career change if so, and wholeheartedly hope they don't go back.
i'm definitely happy with this. Love AC and Ariel Pink, like Gang Gang Dance, Spectrum, Broadcast and Dent May, and Meat Puppets are playing one of my favourite albums of all time. no complaints.
Think they'll stick to AC. Avey Tare said he doesn't intend to perform his new album at all.
AC + ATP on these boards is like a red rag to a bull.
For my money this is one of the best opening salvos they've put together for a while, and I'm often sad ATP don't have more in the way of late night 'proper' dance music - Omar-S and Zomby (if he shows) are pretty amazing picks, great to see Vladislav Delay on there, and if they're any indication it'll be an excellent mix. I know Noah Lennox is really into a lot of Kompakt stuff, and if Vlad Delay and Lee Perry are there it's possible they might get people like Moritz von Oswald Trio and Rhythm & Sound, which would be delightful. Alongside the likes of Black Dice, Broadcast and Gang Gang, that's a pretty incredible selection, imho.
POSITIVE COMMENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON A DIS ATP THREAD
The miffling isn't as bad as I first thought when I skim read the last few posts.
this looks fantastic already, more quality dancey stuff than ever before. I can't wait to see who else is going to be added, hopefully some hip-hop stuff as well.
That's £180 saved next year then.
because I want to go on holiday.
this is one of the best, most interesting and fun announcement line ups I have ever seen at ATP... or any festival for that matter... thank fuck it wont be a weekend of exclusively guitar music.
I've not got any complaints about Animal Collective either.
Except maybe that I saw them live once and the experience was akin to watching the extermination of my entire family and everyone I love one-by-one in barbaric, gruesome detail. Wasn't much fun.
Animal Collective bring up hatred in my that I didn't even know existed. Just writing this has given me some kind of ulcer. Horrible music for horrible people.
But as I said; no complaints.
this guy is my new favourite poster ^ it's all in the delivery.
Thi is probably the biggest achievement I've had in 4.5 years.
but this looks pretty fun so far. out of the remaining Paw Tracks stuff I realllllllllly hope they bring Tickley Feather over.
i'd that's a pretty interesting first set of additions. not yet mind-blowing (as people says they're a lot of their contemparies (Gang Gang, Prince Rama etc.) as opposed to their influences who i'd like to see more of...but where they have stepped up to the plate, it is pretty exciting.
are seriously great. 2 of my all-time favourite records. Rest of it looks interesting, so far, but probably not more than that.
think i will be giving that one a miss....
still, sure it will be fun, but... having seen a lot of the bands on the lineup its nor really doing it for me
have to find some other festival for next sumemr then
OR actually have a holiday for the first time in years....
...not particularly impressed.
Always have a great time, but can only justify getting a ticket if there's some wheat in the chaff.
...saves me sticking £30 into that fucking stupid Deal or No Deal fruit machine in the 18+ gambling area this year I suspect.
Or are they just curating and not playing?
I have never been to ATP so internet please don't be a dick, a nice answer would be lovely.
and maybe play a warm up sow in london as a result
Isnt that just cooking instructions for bacon?
Animal collective are defintiely playing a set.
Not billed as uk exclusive performance, so i guess a tour will happen as well.
maybe even recording
I grinned when I saw the ATP email and the headliners, then went straight to this thread.
TOGETHER AGAIN. Is enough to make me piss my pants. Group Doueh was possibly my greatest ever live experience. Would love to see IUD. Zomby would be amazing. Anyone on who won't be great on the line-up so far? I hope the line up gets a little obscurer and surprising as it goes on though.
However, it's still as pricey as a dick free of cheese. I'd be flying over too but wow, I'm pretty certain it would be a pretty sweet weekend!
Thanks also for clearing that up guys
They just need to add some stuff like Moritz Von Oswald Trio (might as well seeing as Sasu already there) or NSI. and a couple more DJs I rate then I'm all over it.
The only real question is why do people even bother booking Zomby? As far I know he's NEVER turned up to a show an played a proper set.
He's cancelled on AC before though.
but he's just a frequent no-show. Look how mature he is when ribbed about it too- http://www.self-titledmag.com/home/2009/06/19/this-week-in-twitter-drop-the-lime-and-zomby-get-bitchy-owen-pallett-has-breakfast-with-a-black-metal-demigod-and-much-much-more/
(I still love him though.)
Can we talk about the gigs you miss? I think people would be interested to hear you talk about it.
Yeah, it’s nothing in particular. I missed a few small DJ sets early on and then dubstep internet communities started to chastise me as some kind of patriarchal non-DJ figure. But it might be that a promoter had fucked up or I’ve missed a flight. Shit happens every day, it’s nothing really. I mean I might miss a dental appointment, but the nurse doesn’t go on a forum and flame the issue.
And the Animal Collective shows in New York?
I played a festival in Oslo the night before and just fell ill, you know. I was admitted to the local hospital with an infection in my stomach. That was painful, actually. The internet went wild with speculation as they do, but it’s really a lot more normal in real time.
The nurse isn't paying for the privilege of looking at your teeth, is she? What a dickhead.
i'd never miss one.
It's just that the ones he doesn't get more highly publicised (obviously)
Not just amazing curators but amazing selection of artists too. Everyone should check out Prince Rama if they haven't.
apart from Animal Collective, you could've made up every single one of the band names listed so far and i wouldn't know the difference.
shall i hand in my dis membership or get cracking? i can't really be arsed with new bands anymore, i like the ones i've got.
although I'm sure for a lot of people it'll be a dream come true. Sad there isn't another May ATP this time around, but I guess at least I can save my money for another festival next summer.
I love checking out new shit
hope I get to go.
hope zomby turns up and panda bear isn't added to the bill.
The last two years I have been to both ATPs in May and Primavera. It's just too expensive so I reckon I'll put my cash towards a better hotel for Primavera.
but if Aoki Takamasa and Tujiko Noriko arewn't booked i will be a very sad panda. Ogurusu Norihide once toured with them as well didn't he, so can we have him too. THANK YOU. BYE.
also, on the basis of the Person Pitch list i'm hoping Moodymann, Robert Hood and Sting are all involved. oh and get Wolfgang Voigt doing some weird-ass piano stuff a-la his last record. Oh my days, best atp ever!
STOP PRESS: On sale time pushed back to 1pm Friday to avoid the take that and foo fighters fans in the morning
I just went GOLD. Now I need to find some people to come to Animal Collective with me...
