The organizers behind All Tomorrow's Parties have a knack for finding charmingly dilapidated venues for their music festival, from a grand resort that time forgot to a seaside boardwalk in the midst of revitalization. Moving from Kutcher's Country Club in Monticello, N.Y., the festival will be spread over three venues in Asbury Park, N.J., this weekend. The suddenly active yet still reclusive Jeff Mangum is on tap to perform twice, as are Saturday's curators in Portishead.
Right now, Bob Boilen and I are at ATP to record a number of sets — though, sadly, we were unable to obtain permission for the aforementioned headliners. The performances will be archived on the site this coming Monday, Oct. 3, but in the meantime, we'll be tweeting (Bob Boilen as @allsongs and myself as @totalvibration) and putting up photos on our Flickr page all weekend.
Here are some of the artists we'll record, with more to be announced:
Thinking Fellers Union Local 282
Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog
You can find the full schedule and set times at ATP's website. (Note: Mogwai has canceled its Sunday performance.) By the way, if you're at the festival this weekend, the organizers have told us that the preferred Twitter hashtag is #ATPIBYM.
You can also listen to a selection of music from all of the artists attending the festival. These are studio records. Concert records from many artists will start going online the first week of October.
