Since 1999, All Tomorrow’s Parties has been providing the U.K. with one the more stellar, unique, exclusive, and successful music festivals around, the latter characteristic which can be seen in the recent offshoots of the festival (see: ATP New York and Nightmare Before Xmas. So, needless to say, as the festival finds itself having just completed its 10th incarnation, it’s time to celebrate. And what better way to celebrate, then with the release of a DVD.
On September 23rd, Warp X will release the aptly titled All Tomorrow’s Parties. Billed as a DIY concert film, the DVD promises to include footage from past ATP performers like Battles, Sonic Youth, BelleaAnd Sebastian, Patti Smith, Animal Collective, Grinderman, Iggy and the Stooges, Portishead, Mogwai, Slint, Grizzly Bear, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Gossip, Daniel Johnston and The Boredoms. Some 200 filmmakers, fans and musicians were involved in the project, with Jonathan Caouette serving as director and Vincent Moon as cinematographer.
Ahead of the DVD release, the film will be shown at select theaters on select dates across the U.K. Check out the film’s MySpace for the complete listing. Check out below for a trailer of the film.
