ATP I'll Be Your Mirror USA moves to NYC (9/21-23)



In very "WHAT THE WHAT?!" and "HAPPY FRIDAY THE 13th, SUCKAAAS" news this morning, it was announced that All Tomorrow's Parties' (ATP) upcoming I'll Be Your Mirror USA 2012 festival has been moved from Asbury Park, NJ to Pier 36, NYC. In a press release this morning, ATP announced:

"Pier 36 was the intended home for I'll Be Your Mirror beginning in 2013 - but due to unavoidable logistical concerns (along with a lack of available fan accommodations in Asbury Park), ATP has decided to move there for this year's event.

We hope that the new venue will make for an incredible event and open up many other accommodation options to fans who were unable to find rooms in Asbury Park," comments ATP's Barry Hogan. "We sincerely apologise to those inconvenienced by the move and hope that any problems caused may be minimised by the relatively small distance between the two locations. Anyone who is unable to attend due to the move or due to the cancellation of Louis CK can claim a full refund by contacting their ticket agent between now and July 31st." 



Perhaps trying to ease the blow (no Louis CK?!), several new additions to the lineup have been announced, including: Philip Glass & Tyondai Braxton, Janeane Garofalo, Lightning Bolt, Lee Ranaldo, Chavez, Kurt Braunohler, Afterhours, Joseph Arthur, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Album Leaf, The Psychic Paramount, Braids, Tall Firs, Blanck Mass, Endless Boogie, Demdike Stare and DJ Jonathan Toubin.

You can read the full press release with mixed emotions on ATP's website, and tickets are still available ova here. The full updated lineup is below, with still more to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

  2. After melting only slightly in the breezy heat, the Crocodiles got the show going again, kicking everyone into gear with their brand of noisy, distorted pop. The duo-turned-quintet from San Diego played an excellent set, chock full of fuzzy guitar riffs, droning vocals, and gritty, angsty lyrics.
