I attribute some of that to alcohol, and a lot to 10+ years of expectations based on stories of their shows in the 70s. There was no way they could recapture that; instead, they laughed in the old Suicide's face, and I now appreciate that.

Drunk & angry Bryan totally made my night. I wished that he had stayed longer to talk instead of storming off muttering things about how he was gonna give them a piece of his mind.

Funny thing is, the next day I kinda did give Martin Rev a piece of my mind, and he was incredibly awesome.

Drunk Bryan's exit from Suicide was probably just as violent and punk rock as what he had expected to see on stage. I was 100% certain that he ran off to go puke in the lake.

bmack86

This year, everyone remind Bryan that he didn't watch all of the Jesus Lizard because of how much he drunk. That was an oops and a half.

The date got taken down from ticketmaster. i really hope they move it to be a Saturday, not a friday. There is no way I can get to New York for that otherwise

Icemouse
06-02-2010, 06:10 PM
Also since that date wasn't officially announced maybe they're waiting for a certain announcement before releasing it...

Also Jamie states he doesn't think the main stage can hold the entire orchestra, then later states the second stage is likely getting moved?? HMMM!

You're nuts!! There is a ton of space for a headliner on all 3 days and no date is anywhere close to booked solid. Friday is nowhere near full either. I'm almost guaranteeing Doolittle.. They're with fuck buttons, deal is already here, and the band is to be in Philly a few days after the event

whiney
06-03-2010, 12:20 PM
They could start the day with Spiritualized a la Sufjan last year.

I'm just saying I'm gonna say super doubtful because with Stooges, Sonic Youth, EITS and Breeders I'm guessing there's not enough cash for TWO more headliner announcements since that Jarmusch hole is prolly gonna need filling before they bring a 30-piece orchestra up in there

Again, prove me wrong!

whiney
06-03-2010, 12:21 PM
I'm almost guaranteeing Doolittle..

You know how much the Pixies cost? You're out of your mind!

wmgaretjax
06-03-2010, 12:26 PM
Both are within the realm of possibility. Crazier things have happened at many a ATP. Although I would not personally be thrilled with either of them...

mountmccabe
06-03-2010, 12:32 PM
Yeah, on some level I would love to see Pixies play Doolittle but I don't see how it'd fit with Friday as currently constructed. The Stooges, the Scientists and Mudhoney form a nice, neat chain. Maybe Sleep could be seen as the next step in that chain but it is at least a side step... but regardless they fit in perfectly.

Pixies do not make sense with that set. Doesn't mean they couldn't be enjoyed and maybe such rock shows should not have that sort of clarity but shit.


And I would be shocked if Sonic Youth were not the Saturday headliner.

wmgaretjax
06-03-2010, 12:39 PM
i would be surprised... but not shocked. it would be a money thing... not an ego thing... getting in the way of that happening.

whiney
06-03-2010, 12:42 PM
And I would be shocked if Sonic Youth were not the Saturday headliner.

I agree with this 100%

Icemouse
06-03-2010, 04:10 PM
i agree that that Doolittle would be a money issue, but just the timing of everything and the fact that Deal is already playing the fest, AND the fact that they're touring not only with a band who is playing the fest, but is on ATP/R makes me think that something came together to make it happy. Honestly I would be 1000000x happier if ATP was the first promoters who got them to do Surfer Rosa.

And we'll see about saturday. I wouldn't be surprised if they were, but I wouldn't be shocked if they weren't. When I said headliners I meant to fill up the top 4 spots(headlining and just preceding stage 1 and same for stage 2)

andymcdandy
06-03-2010, 04:32 PM
They may not be very popular yet, but I would love to see Gauntlet Hair. Even though they don't have an lp yet, their 7" is FANTASTIC. It be great to have their first American Festival be ATP. And I hear they're very good live too.

bmack86
06-03-2010, 05:38 PM
I'd definitely support Gauntlet Hair being there. What a badass band.

wmgaretjax
06-03-2010, 07:22 PM
agreed.

whiney
06-03-2010, 08:51 PM
i think the last thing a band that new needs to be doing is playing festivals.

andymcdandy
06-03-2010, 10:24 PM
i agree to a certain extent. neon indian's third show was at monolith last year and it was really good. but i still agree that i don't wanna ruin them early.

wmgaretjax
06-03-2010, 11:25 PM
i think the last thing a band that new needs to be doing is playing festivals.

i would agree for large festivals... something like ATP is small enough that I don't think it's a huge deal.

bmack86
06-03-2010, 11:29 PM
ATP doesn't come across as a festival so much as a meeting of like, appreciative minds who love the music that's being played. I think Gauntlet Hair would be a very good fit for that sort of festival.

You know who I'd rather see than Cold Cave? Xiu Xiu.

Xiu Xiu is fantastic live when they are on, and pretty frustrating when they are off... Although I haven't seen them since the lineup shakeup. They would be a great add.

Xiu Xiu has had much more staying power than Cold Cave as well. I mean, srsly, has anyone listened to Love Comes Close at all this year?

If that's the case, I'd be so happy. I'd be ecstatic if the Clean were there (and I'd hope that'd mean the Bats play a set as well). If they brought the Chills over, I'd lose my shit. If I had gotten a text today saying that was the case, I would probably have had to pull over and scream in joy.

ATP celebrate 10 years with a birthday party on Saturday, September 4th hosting a day of past ATP curators, ATP Recordings artists and friends. To complete the line-up for this day our new additions are headed up by HALLOGALLO, a very special new project headed by Michael Rother and featuring Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth), Aaron Mullan (Tall Firs) and Ben Curtis (Secret Machines, School of Seven Bells). Hallogallo will perform the music of Rother's 1970s Krautrock legends Neu! - their recent debut show in Barcelona was rapturously received. Also confirmed are cult heros SHELLAC who appear as ATP's House Band, FURSAXA, SIAN ALICE GROUP and TEXT OF LIGHT (featuring Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo). Steve Albini of Shellac is also confirmed to host his Card Games Room over the weekend. Here's that day's full line-up...

Jim Jarmusch will curate Sunday, September 5th and a new addition to his previously announced choices comes in the shape of garage rock band THE GREENHORNES. Unfortunately the previously announced Brian Jonestown Massacre have had to cancel their appearance. Here's how the day is looking so far with more to be announced...

if y'all aren't excited about Michael Rother from Neu! i don't know what to tell you

MrAmeche
06-08-2010, 06:52 AM
So at this point I'm assuming whatever it was that caused ATP to send out the "buy tix now 'cause this will sell out instantly" email never materialized? We've had two rounds of additions since then.

Much as I'm psyched to see Shellac yet again, Fursaxa and the Neu! thing, I can't imagine these adds will pull in many folks who don't already have tickets. And losing BJM offsets a fair amount of the good news this time.

Note that the Saturday lineup is now "complete," so if there are any more adds they'll be Jarmusch's or Friday stuff (comedy?).

Still, I'm quite happy with the lineup personally. I'm just processing some disappointment over the fact that nothing discussed here the past few weeks actually materialized.

apostle2
06-08-2010, 06:54 AM
it's the fact that it's another add for Saturday, which most people were already sold on, rather than an add for Sunday, which is obviously missing some of its big pieces.

whiney
06-08-2010, 07:06 AM
So at this point I'm assuming whatever it was that caused ATP to send out the "buy tix now 'cause this will sell out instantly" email never materialized?

i'm guessing yes, because obviously what the fest was (and is) missing is a headliner for Sunday.

i'm interested to know if the the big sellout headliner actual DROPPED OFF THE BILL or if it's a case of just being super-complicated and working out details

also, i wouldn't be sad about any of our ideas for saturday not materializing since i think that 90% of them were batshit crazy fantasy football dreams and there was already at least three bands on saturday that can sell out any venue in New York on any given night

whiney
06-08-2010, 07:08 AM
Personally, this Neu! news is some of the best pieces of news I could of got, and certainly no complaints about Fursaxa and Sian Alice either.

I've also been to both NY ATPs and still haven't seen an entire Shellac set, so maybe this will be the year!

MrAmeche
06-08-2010, 07:22 AM
90% of them were batshit crazy fantasy football dreams
I'm not talking about that. I meant Dead C, Raincoats, EMERALDS, Tom Waits kinda stuff.

TallGuyCM
06-08-2010, 07:23 AM
I think Tom Waits could be considered part of the batshit crazy fantasty football dreams.

MrAmeche
06-08-2010, 07:28 AM
Maybe so. It just seemed, given his relationship with Jarmusch and the this shit is about to sell out once we add X announcement, there was a decent chance he would be X. Or maybe I just wanted to believe that despite all realistic evidence ...

MrAmeche
06-08-2010, 07:32 AM
Also, regarding Neu!, I'd probably be more excited if Rother himself hadn't recently been quoted saying, "I want to translate some of the basic principles of our music into a live performance ... However, Neu! cannot be recreated. Neu! was Michael Rother and Klaus Dinger. And that's over."

whiney
06-08-2010, 07:38 AM
i'm basically talkin about the crazy saturday dreamin about the Pixies and the Clean/Bats double shot and Godspeed and Pavement.

I was (rightfully) going on the assumption that Sonic Youth/Breeders/EITS meant Saturday's budget was essentially spent, and the "big announcement" was a SUNDAY thing

Another underwhelming announcement, 2 sonic youth side projects, the house band, and an ATP/R band. Also a headliner drop from Sunday. Seems NY may be having issues this year. I'm still stoked about the lineup, but it's the announcements that are the bummer. Why are Friday and Sunday getting no love?

Agreed. Especially after they told us this one was supposed to be BIG and cause the event to sell out fast.

Exactly. We've been waiting months and I'd like to be able to generate interest amongst my fencepost friends to fill up my room and this just isn't gonna do it. Now with only 3 months left I might have to start booting them out to try to fill up with others even though the full lineup isn't even out. Shocked we didn't get comedy!

Also I'm super excited Shellac got announced again, but I was really hoping ATP could pull big black together as a way to keep albini around and not have the same band 3 years running. Always next year :)

just so everyone can see it a little better - Saturday:
sonic youth
hallogallo
fursaxa
sian Alice group
light of text
shellac
explosions in the sky
the breeders
fuck buttons
tortoise
the books
bardo pond

We're looking at a bunch of things for the Sunday but nothing is 100% right now; it's being worked on; we sent that email a while back because we weren't sure of the weekend ticket/day ticket split at that point and a lot of people were and are picking up rooms with the intention of buying weekend tickets later - so we wanted to give fair warning that it might not be possible depending on how sales go. They're still a lot faster than last year which is obviously good.

As you may have guessed locking in the Sunday stuff is taking longer than expected - there's a few things floating around right now so hopefully it'll be tied down soon.

OK, so first we got this from ATP:

>We thought it would be advisable to inform you that we will be
announcing a group of new acts for the festival in the next few days,
and as sales are already moving a lot faster than last year, if you
want to guarantee being able to get enough weekend tickets you may
want to buy them sooner rather than later.

then, when folks seemed surprised the next lineup announcement didn't include a huge name, Jamie responded with this

>There's something else being worked on that's taking longer than expected, that was why we sent out that email.

but now it's being chalked up to
>we sent that email a while back because we weren't sure of the weekend ticket/day ticket split at that point and a lot of people were and are picking up rooms with the intention of buying weekend tickets later - so we wanted to give fair warning that it might not be possible depending on how sales go.

Seems to me either something big dropped out or, if the original email was never about a specific act, we all got kinda duped. Guess that's on us, but someone in the know could have clarified sometime over the past three months. Though obviously, from a cynical point of view, doing so wouldn't be in ATP's best interest.

jamie_atp
06-08-2010, 08:45 AM
The original email actually said:

"We understand that a large number of you have bought your rooms with the intention of buying some or all of your weekend tickets at a later stage. We thought it would be advisable to inform you that we will be announcing a group of new acts for the festival in the next few days, and as sales are already moving a lot faster than last year, if you
want to guarantee being able to get enough weekend tickets you may want to buy them sooner rather than later."

So it's not really a change of story. At that point it did look like things were going to happen faster announcement-wise; and rather than tickets sell out and a lot of people be angry because they'd bought a room and not tickets we thought it best to let people know what was going on. Obviously things have taken a bit longer and we do apologise if anyone feels misled by that; it wasn't our intention.

Comedy should be announced along with the last set of bands. I've heard a few names for Sunday all of which would be cool so fingers crossed everyone.

MrAmeche

I don't know why anyone would say the Clean/Bats doubleshot would have been a long shot, considering Hamish lives in New York full time and Bob has a house there. Still, Hallogallo is an awesome call, and Shellac is always a good time. We have huge expectations for this, but those are some awesome choices.

And fuck off whoever is calling Hallogallo a Sonic Youth side project. Just stick around long enough to hear some of the songs and you'll wipe that condescension right off your ears.

jamie_atp
06-08-2010, 09:01 AM
For most of the fests we go through the fun of having 4 or 5 or 6 big names that look like they're on the verge of confirming and then they drop out; but we keep on working on things. Maybe you're right and less posting from us would mean less insane speculation from you guys ;-)

I saw the first Hallogallo show last week in Barcelona and it is AMAZING. Any Neu! fans will not be disappointed, people were going crazy. Michael was totally happy with it and Steve and Aaron did a great great job. Calling it a SY side project IS crazy - these guys were really honoured to be involved.

Shellac house band thing is just a joke really as we always have them.

I have to echo another member's concern. I don't think I'm the only one who is going to have a difficult time convincing casual listeners to spend 400 on so much obscurity. The past NY festivals (and all of their European counterparts) do a wonderful job at balancing the big with the small, a dynamic that's pretty heavily skewed towards the latter with what's been released thus far.

But enough: let the speculation re: comedy begin. Can I get a call for the recently reunited Human Giant?

When did the Clean become a big deal for anyone else? Because I never hear anyone talk about them on here, and I would go absolutely batshit if they played, but it's not like the Clean are exactly a huge deal in most people's books.

If that hadn't been the case, I think I'd be every bit as excited for this year. I mean, Sleep, Stooges and Hallogallo alone.

Saturday '08 was my favorite ATP NY day ever, and this year's Saturday lineup compares quite well on paper. Friday has Stooges/Sleep, so that obviously won't suck. And Sunday ... well, apart from Sunn/Boris there's nothing I NEED to see that day, which is a major letdown from the past two ATP NY guest-curator days. The fact that The Greenhornes are listed fourth shows the relative weakness of Sunday '10. But before I come right out and say Jarmusch was a poor choice as curator, I'll wait to see wait else gets added.

i'm really surprised about all the complaining about the line up so far. Especially from anyone who has been to an ATP before. i mean, the thing i learned is what you think is going to be great, often turns out to be not so great (for me last year those bands included crystal castles, atlas sound and caribou) and then other bands that you had no or low exceeded expectations (for last year akron/family, oneida, el-p and black dice) and then, some are as good as you hoped they would be (again, last year... panda bear, jesus lizard, no age).

it's a hard concert to judge by line-up because it's not totally about the line-up. it's about having an open mind, hanging out with like-minded people and just enjoying a well-done, high-quality experience.

with that said - i agree, the line up (so far) is a little less "hype" buzz then last year. for sure. but that's not to mean there are not tremendous acts on the bill. i was so excited about the michael rother project when i read about this morning.

sonic youth! tortoise! fucked up (sorry i grew up a hardcore kid - i'm excited), dungen... the names might not be at the tippity top of pitchfork's current "cool" list, but they make for a nice diverse line-up in my opinion.

again - just my opinion

And I'm sure that I'll watch a handful of the bands that I'm less excited about, and I'll enjoy them thoroughly.

So, I was thinking back to 2008 and remembering that my favorite set, Harmonia, was my favorite because there were two stretches where Michael Rother stretched out into his NEU!-style guitar work and it was so beautiful and perfect that I broke into tears, thinking this was the closest I'd ever get to hearing some of my all time favorite music live.

Yup, today's adds make me very happy. I guess I'll need to check out Fursaxa.

That NEU! project HALLOGALLO is going to do some more touring right?

Right?

They could book bands all the size of White Hills and I would still go.
I'm with you brother, but apparently not all folks feel that way since year 1 sold out and year 2 didn't come close. I personally can't imagine missing this thing - it is absolutely about the atmosphere and crowd as much as the acts.

Neu!(!)(esque)(!). They should add Faust and Cluster and Klaus Schulze and have Brian Eno be a surprise secret guest and have a giant krautrock blowout.

Maybe next year, as much as I'd hate it, ATP should experiment in releasing all of the artists at once. Maybe just make an initial announcement with a curator first and don't announce anything else until it's finalized. Honestly I always feel underwhelmed by every announcement but I always look back and I'm just blown away when you see it all there in front of you.

I mean you might see through the many months one announcement on a blog about Hallogallo headlining or Sonic Youth headlining or Iggy Pop doing Raw Power but by the time you hear the next, if you aren't as involved as us, you've probably forgotten the last round. It might be better for sales, but I dunno... I'm not an expert, I guess

EDIT: Also, I'm kind of surprised Hallogallo wasn't Sunday, now that I think of it

the reason the fest was a miserable logistical experience this year is the fault of the gate-crashers, not the fest organizers.

Baseball definitely would be more fun than poker. I suck at card games, but can throw a pretty sweet curve ball.

Anyone have thoughts on the comedy? I'd still love to see coco. Doesn't have to be comedy, I just want to see him walking around. I'd love to see some conan-interviews-Frankie Don outtake footage

dorkfish
06-15-2010, 07:18 PM
Well, if they're not repeating Patton or David Cross, it'll probably be someone of that similar ilk. Conan seems like an expensive longshot (unless Jarmusch gets Jack White involved and Conan jumps in on the cheap).

Courtney

I kind of feel bad even typing this, but honestly I don't care about the comedy lineup. I mean, I'm happy for others who enjoy it, but it's just not why I go to ATP at all.

My comedy curator prediction: Aziz Ansari. But I'm also in the don't-care-much-about-comedy column. I'm much more interested in Sunday adds at this point.

i would guess prolly Mirman since he's already been to both NYC ATPs and does an excellent job curating comedy nights in the city

I don't think Cross finished a single joke. It was like watching a car crash happen in slow motion, yet we couldn't turn away.
