Whoa, I can’t believe that I’m actually excited for a music festival and I’m in America. Granted, it’s not a totally “SOLID” line up, at least it’s better than Coachella 2004 was, Lollapalooza 2004 wasn’t, The Warped Tour ever was, Ozzfest, or any other American music festival for that matter. American’s just don’t know how to rock man. So until they let me book my own fucking festival of 100% radical ass kicking bands, this ATP gig will have to do. Plus they told me I’d get free tickets if I wrote this thing… Anyhoo, this weekend, down in the LBC (if you’re not a Snoop Dogg fan, that stands for Long Beach California biotch), they’re throwing a big two day rock show called “ALL TOMORROW’S PARTIES” (yeah, it’s named after The Velvet Underground song) amd Modest Mouse picked all the bands this time around (Slint’s picking bands for the London ATP sometime next year). On Saturday November 6th you can see: LOU REED (Yeah he’s old and weird now but it’s still Lou Reed and you know he’s gonna fuck up some Velvet songs), THE BLACK HEART PROCESSION, WHITE MAGIC, LUNGFISH, J MASCIS + THE FOG, MODEST MOUSE, & THE BUFF MEDWAYS FEATURING BILLY CHILDISH as well as EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY, THE WALKMEN, WOLF PARADE, SUFJAN STEVENS, WHITE HASSLE, & WILLY MASON . And on Sunday November 7th you can see: THE CRAMPS, THE SHINS, STEPHEN MALKMUS AND THE JICKS, BUILT TO SPILL, EAGLES OF DEATH METAL, CONSTANTINES, THE FLAMING LIPS as well as LOVE AS LAUGHTER, THOSE PEABODYS, RADAR BROTHERS, MAGIC MAGICIANS, & PEACHES. Is anyone else excited about this? Am I alone here? Who else is going? Speak up Lou Reed fans. Oh, go check out the ATP website by clicking HERE.
