Afghan Whigs, Louis C.K. and The Roots also on the bill
Columbus indie rock veterans Scrawl (check out my recent review) will appear at the New Jersey edition of the esteemed All Tomorrow's Parties (ATP) festival, subtitled I'll Be Your Mirror, on Saturday, Sept. 22. England-based ATP charges one headlining musician with the task of assembling the rest of the lineup. This time the curator is Greg Dulli, whose reunited Afghan Whigs will co-headline the fest with comedian Louis C.K. and hip-hop superstars turned late-night TV super-duperstars The Roots. Other lineup highlights: softspoken Swedish singer-songwriter Jose Gonzalez, Cleveland ambient experimentalists Emeralds and Detroit motown garage blasters The Dirtbombs.
Sunday, Sept. 23's festivities, curated by the ATP staff, include an appearance by recently reunited indie legends The Make-Up, also-reunited punk ragers Hot Snakes and shoegaze cult favorites Autolux. Friday's lineup is coming soon.
Tickets for the three-day fest go on sale Monday for $199. The fest will take place along the Jersey shoreline in Springsteen's hometown of Asbury Park.
