Once again, WFMU makes camp at Kutsher's resort in the heart of the Borscht Belt, as we hook up with the All Tomorrow's Parties festival and broadcast live! The three-day long event in Monticello NY runs from September 11-13th and if you caught last year's simulcast from the My Bloody Valentine-curated fest you know that having WFMU is the next best thing to being there (though while we carried a myriad of live sets, we may have fallen short in relaying the experience of having one's nails done in the Kutsher's spa). This year's lineup is co-curated by the Flaming Lips, and WFMU's simulcasts will happen Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 12 and 13. We're still working out assorted artist permissions (stay tuned to the blog and our home page, and once again we'll alert everyone as to which sets may be downloadable later on), but the performance roster this time out includes Suicide, the Feelies (each performing their first albums) Jesus Lizard, Animal Collective, Boris, Boss Hog, the Melvins, Deerhunter, No Age (w/Bob Mould performing Husker Du songs with them) Boredoms, Deerhoof, Grouper, Oneida, Caribou Variation Ensemble, Anti-Pop Consortium and more. We'll have interviews, full sets, probably some remotes from the lake's rowboats, and WFMU will be heading up a DJ night in the Kutschers lounge on Sunday night! More info on how to attend ATP here (rooms at the resort we are told are now sold out however). Hope to see some WFMU listeners there!
