Since late last fall, the organizers behind ATP New York have slowly revealed the details behind this September’s incarnation of the hipster-leaning music fest. As we previously reported, Iggy Pop will reunite with The Stooges to headline Friday’s Don’t Look Back night of full album performances.
Now comes the news that director Jim Jarmusch will curate the event’s Sunday lineup. Among the first bands that Jarmusch has selected are The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Raekwon, Girls, Wooden Shjips, The Black Angels and Vivian Girls. In addition to those acts, Sonic Youth, Explosions In The Sky, The Breeders and The Books will all take the stage for Saturday’s festivities. ATP New York will take place over the course of Labor Day weekend this September at Kutsher’s Country Club in upstate New York. Tickets, which cost $250 for a three-night pass, are currently on-sale now.
If you can’t make it to Kutsher’s that weekend, than maybe you’ll be able to hit one of these recently announced tours…

Last summer, JellyNYC’s highly successful free summer concert series dubbed the Pool Parties had to move from their original home at Brooklyn’s McCarren Park Pool to the nearby East River Park, as the original venue began the process of being turned back into a public pool. Last fall, there were concerns that the East River Park would not be made available to the concert promoters for 2010, but news recently surfaced that an agreement has been reached to bring them back once again thanks in large part to Brooklyn native Senator Chuck Schumer who helped broker the deal.
