Good news for New Yorkers afraid of venturing out beyond their tiny island into the godforsaken wilds of New Jersey: ATP’s 2012 stateside I’ll Be Your Mirror event has been moved from New Jersey’s Asbury Park to Manhattan’s new Pier 36 venue, located along the beautiful East River. Taking place over the originally scheduled weekend of September 21-23, I’ll Be Your Mirror is being co-curated by the frontman of the newly reunited Afghan Wigs, Greg Dulli, and by the good people at ATP.
Because of the change in venue, some originally scheduled acts have been forced to drop out, most notably Louis C.K., but a number of acts have also been added to the bill to hopefully soften the blow of the loss of the beloved comic schlub. Along with C.K., Sharon Van Etten, Reigning Sound, and Factory Floor are out, Phillip Glass & Tyondai Braxton, Janeane Garofalo, Demdike Stare, Lightning Bolt, and a whole host of other acts are in.
Full refunds are available to those who were just on board for the Louis C.K. action, but the fest hopes that the move back to civilization will keep people interested in attending. They also emphasize that New York actually has hotels to stay in.
More acts are set to be announced and tickets are available now.
