Late last year, All Tomorrow's Parties announced that reformed '90s soul-scuzz legends The Afghan Whigs would be playing their I'll Be Your Mirror Festival this year, and helping to curate the lineup. Now we know some of the people who will be joining them.
Comedian Louis C.K., The Roots, troubadour Jose Gonzalez and the Mark Lanegan Band top out the lineup. More will be announced soon. For one thing, if Lanegan is there anyway, it might be time for him and head Whig Greg Dulli to do some Gutter Twins songs.
I'll Be Your Mirror is set for Sept. 21 through Sept. 23 at Asbury Park's waterfront area; performances will take place either in the Convention Hall, Paramount Theatre, or the Berkeley Hotel.
As is always the case with ATP, these shows will be about as intimate as festival performances get, and will feature both a comedy stage, a film festival and the best between song DJ sets you could possibly imagine.
Tickets go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. here. Weekend passes will start at $199 for the weekend,and go up to $249 on March 27. A small number of one-day tickets will also be available.
