All Tomorrow’s Parties (ATP) is happy to announce its return to Kutsher’s Country Club in Monticello, New York for the 2nd annual ATP New York festival. The event will be held Sept 11-13, 2009.
Last year’s festival, co-curated by My Bloody Valentine, was a critical and cultural success with rave reviews from media and fans. This year’s Fest will be co-curated by The Flaming Lips.
Friday will feature a first New York show in a long time by The Jesus Lizard and newly announced, ATP favourites Iron and Wine. They will join the Don’t Look Back shows also taking place on Friday: The Feelies performing Crazy Rhythms, New York’s finest Suicide performing their first LP, Dirty Three performing Ocean Songs and The Drones performing Wait Long By The River… The evening will be rounded off with the Comedy Stage hosted and curated by the one and only David Cross.
