Festival Fever: All Tomorrow’s Parties @ Kutsher’s Country Club, 9/3-5/10

All Tomorrow's Parties New York
Labor Day weekend is coming up, and that not only signals the end of summer, but also a half dozen festivals vying for your attendance. Perhaps the biggest bash is All Tomorrow’s Parties which takes over Kutsher’s Country Club in Monticello from Friday-Sunday with an A-list of alt-rock royalty, including Iggy & the Stooges, Sonic Youth, Mudhoney, the Breeders and lots, lots more.

All Tomorrow’s Parties on your computer

It’s like sooooo alternative.

Yes, All Tomorrow’s Parties invades Monticello this weekend with a mind-boggling array of uber-cool indie bands. Some are definitely old-school. Some are mondo-happening right now. And some are so cool that you probably haven’t even heard of them yet.

Folks like Crystal Castles, Shellac, Animal Collective, the Dirty Three, Black Dice, Deerhoof (and, of course, Deerhunter), No Age, Boss Hog, Sleepy Sun, Circulatory System, Panda Bear, the Jesus Lizard … oh the list goes on.

Curated by the Flaming Lips, the three-day alt-fest starts today, but if you can’t get away to the Catskills for the weekend, there is another alternative.

You can listen to it on your computer.

The super-fine folks at WFMU will be streaming tuneage from the fest from 6pm-12midnight on Saturday and from 5pm-12midnight on Sunday. They are also planning to run bonus sets and additional live stuff from the fest on Monday from 12noon-5pm.

OK, it’s probably not quite the same as getting your brain smashed in by the Boredoms, but it ain’t bad. And, of course, it’s free, too.

Fall Festival Fever

Yes, it’s sad but true.

Summertime has come … and gone … for another year.

But now ain’t the time for your tears. Outdoor music in Nippertown doesn’t just shut down after Labor Day. In fact, there’s still quite a cornucopia of festivals coming our way for the autumn season.

Here’s a quick look at some of the highlights of what’s coming up in the next couple of weeks on the fall festival circuit:
