ATP will be announcing the next set of additions for the Nightmare Before Christmas festival curated by Shellac tomorrow - Thursday 16th August.
Following the announcement, we will be hosting a Shellac themed night at Mason & Taylors, Bethnal Green Road, London. It promises DJ sets from Andrew Hung (Fuck Buttons), Rough Trade DJs, ATP's Barry Hogan amongst others; they'll be playing music from the bands performing at the festival and much more. Entry is free (no need to book in advance, just come along on the night).
This is a chance for you ATP attendees to get together and more importantly if you are looking to find enough people to buy one of the few remaining 4 or 6 berth apartments, come along, give us your details on the night and we'll try to pair you with some other possible ATP attendees. Alternatively you can come along on the night and pay by cheque or cash for a chalet with no booking fee (saving £40-£50+ on the apartment). Please note this may depend on availability on the night - at this point 4 berths are almost sold out.
To celebrate Shellac's preference for Vinyl, we're also asking attendees to bring in their old singles and LPs on vinyl, which they'll be able to trade with others and pick up something new.
To reflect Steve Albini of Shellac's quote that "There are three things in the world that I endorse: Abbey Road, Nutter Butter Sandwich Cookies, and All Tomorrow's Parties" we'll also be offering free Nutter Butter Cookies to early attendees, and we've also got a small amount of Shellac mix CDs hailing back to their 2002 ATP event to give away to early arrivals.
The night runs from 7pm-midnight and you can find the venue at 51-55 Bethnal Green Road E1. More info on the venue at their website.
We hope to see you there!
