    Afghan Whigs reunion will incite just as much if not more excitement than Jeff Mangum for certain people. This really is a big deal.

    And I agree with Courtney about the epectations for what kind of a sexy- smokey, whiskey-fueled weekend this has the potential to be.

    They should get Lucero to do a Tennessee DLB set

    Greetings,

    Thank you for your inquiry at The Empress Hotel. We are accepting reservations for the weekend of September 21-23. The rate is $229.00 per night, based on double occupancy. There is a charge of $25.00 per extra person. We require a 72 hour cancellation policy.

    If you are interested in reserving a room, please contact the hotel direct at 732-774-0100.

    Thank you

    Empress staff
    Hey Empress...go fuck yourselves. Instead of gouging repeat customers, why not show us a little something/something for our loyalty. It's no matter, I was going to stay at the Berkeley this year anyway.

    But, seriously...a nearly 300% price increase over last year is just bloody rude. A little uplift is fine, but this is just a butt-reaming. We ought to trash that place this year.

    There are several other options in the area worth looking into. If I was booking, I would go for Mikell's Big House before the Empress, just due to proximity. The Hotel Tides is supposed to be very nice too.

    Because you are so nice, you're missing the point. The Empress will be trashed this year. Fuck them.

    I don't see what is so bad about them responding to market demand by raising prices. I mean, sure it's annoying for customers, but that's what capitalism is all about. If you don't like it, vote with your dollars and don't give them your business.

    Exactly. It's like with In The Aeroplane Over The Sea being some sort of lost unheralded classic except all those people were wrong and all us people were absolultely right.

    :P

    What planet do you guys live on? Whigs won't sell out theatres around the world in under 2 minutes, maybe in London, but that's it. That said I am excited about this and think it has the potential to be the best American ATP yet, but I'm also being resonable, this may be a hard sell to lots.

    It will be small I'm sure.
    But just like with the Suede reunion: not everyone will get it, but the right people will get it. :P

    My room was $100 a night for nice clean room with 2 full size beds & harbor just outside my window. The drive to the venue was less than 15 minutes with traffic lights.

    Got in on Friday & woke up to a community festival being held in the parking lot of the harbor behind the hotel. Vendors selling fresh catfish, crabcakes, (the most amazing) hush puppies & other good stuff. If I go I'm staying there again. Also had a large bar & grill in front of the hotel where they supposedly filmed everyones favorite reality show from time to time.

    I was in no state to drive myself home on any of the nights of ATP. But a community festival sounds pretty awesome.

    Luckily I had a designated driver because I was in no shape to drive all nights back either but a cab ride there would not have been very expensive.

    God almighty my grammar really sux sometimes.

    GeezrRckr, it's also closer to being 'in-season' so the prices are probably up because of that... food for thought

    Spiritualized will be releasing a new album... Seems like as good a time as any for them to stop over

    The last time I saw Spiritualized which was at Street Scene was a major disappointment. No sonic wall of Floating in Space but instead they sounded like a really bad Primal Scream cover band.

    only had really heard Gentlemen before this announcement. I went back and check out their other albums. I think this might be my new favorite band

    Looking very forward to the return to Asbury Park and would like to get in on some Berkeley action again if folks are interested in sharing.

    I don't know what my room arrangements are going to be next year, but sharing is good and I would be down with doing so with folks who are civil and will keep the party elsewhere.

    Hahaaa, that was a pretty fantastic coincidence, but I would gladly accept the mezanine bar or lobby as a happy alternative.
