The Melvins have been announced as part of the lineup for the New York All Tomorrow Parties Festival this year, curated by The Flaming Lips. Also announced are personal favorites of mine The Jesus Lizard:
Today we’re pleased to announce the second group of announcements for our second ATP New York festival which runs from 11th-13th September 2009 and is co-curated by The Flaming Lips. The first event received widespread rave reviews and the second is shaping up to be just as good.
On Friday 11th September, joining the previously announced Dirty Three performing Ocean Songs, Suicide performing their legendary first LP and David Cross curating a comedy stage, we have:
THE JESUS LIZARD – their first New York show in many many years
THE DRONES – performing Wait Long By The River And The Bodies Of The Enemies Will Float By
On Saturday 12th September, joining the previously announced Animal Collective, Panda Bear, Black Dice, Antipop Consortium, Autolux and Atlas Sound we have:
We will be announcing some of the bands that THE FLAMING LIPS, our Sunday headliners, have announced in the near future.
Sounds like a pretty good lineup overall. Hey ATP guys – make sure The Jese Lizard and The Melvins are on the lineup for the Oz shows next year!
