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. Expect more of the same greatness in 2009, with no-holds-barred programming both musically and otherwise. Capacity limited to just 2800 people! All stages are INDOORS so rain will not be an issue!

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.

Alongside the outrageously good music lineup, ATP are happy to announce additional events happening throughout the weekend:


CRITERION will be presenting a full film line-up featuring classic films such as ACE IN THE HOLE, BLAST OF SILENCE, DAYS OF HEAVEN, FOR ALL MANKIND, GIMME SHELTER, THE HIT, HOUSE, HUNGER, IF..., IN THE REALM OF THE SENSES, MONTEREY POP, PARIS TEXAS, PIERROT LE FOU, PLAYTIME, TWO-LANE BLACKTOP AND VIDEODROME. As part of the Criterion hosted cinema, Jim Jarmusch will be presenting his 1990 film, Mystery Train on Sunday September 13th at the event, and afterwards performing a Q&A. Named after an Elvis Presley hit, Mystery Train interweaves three engrossing stories, all centering around the Presley legend and his beloved hometown of Memphis. As the character's paths collide -- through laughter, fear and fate -- you can practically feel the presence of the King himself in every scene and his legacy impressed on a generation of equally lost souls in this brilliantly structured comedy.

The Flaming Lips film Christmas On Mars and the long waited ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES film will also be screened (for more info see www.ourtrueintent.com).

We’re incredibly excited to announce that artist ERIC WHITE will be producing this event's Dolbee toy, and doing an exhibition for all three days at the event ahead of his show "LP" at Sloan Fine Art, 9/16, NYC. White was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He attended The Rhode Island School of Design and received his BFA in 1990. Following graduation, White spent ten years in San Francisco. Since 2000, he has been living and working in New York. White is known for his painstaking craftsmanship, complex compositions, and distorted figurative style. His work is heavily influenced by dreams and metaphysics (namely the work of Jane Roberts and Seth), and references vintage Hollywood, high art, and low pop culture. He has shown extensively in galleries and museums around the world such as Freight + Volume, Clementine, and Feigen Contemporary in New York, Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris, and The MACRO Museum in Rome. A collection of his work, “It Feeds Itself,” was published in 2003, followed by a book based on his solo exhibition “Who Are Parents?” in 2005.

Ian Svenonius will be continuing his VBS.TV interview series, Soft Focus with Buzz from The Melvins and Suicide and one more band to be confirmed. Ian Svenonius is an American musician, notable as the singer and mouthpiece of various Washington, D.C.-based music groups including Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up, Weird War, and Chain and The Gang. Between his numerous projects, Svenonius has released more than 15 full-length albums and more than 20 singles, EPs, and splits. Svenonius is also a published author. As the proverbial icing on the chat-show cake, Ian Svenonius and friends will be DJing a dance party on Saturday night. Too much fun!

WFMU will be broadcasting live from the event (tune in at http://www.wfmu.org/ !)
