Jim O'Rourke will curate, perform for ATP Japan; Tiny Mix Tapes editors' heads collectively implode then explode

Today just got a little lot brighter.

ATP announced this morning that Jim O’Rourke has been selected to curate this spring’s I’ll Be Your Mirror. The event, named after the brief Velvet Underground B-side, had its inaugural run last summer with headliner Godspeed You! Black Emperor and was so successful they’ve decided to give it another go.

While the initial line-up has yet to be announced officially, ATP did share that O’Rourke is scheduled to perform at the event — and that’s enough info for us. O’Rourke moved to Japan several years ago and has continued to regularly perform, record, and release music while living overseas. O’Rourke’s last LP of new material in his own name was 2009’s stellar The Visitor (TMT Review), though he’s unloaded a plethora of material — archival, sorta-new, and collabs aplenty in the last couple years.

I’ll Be Your Mirror is scheduled for April 14 and 15 at Studio Coast in Shin Kiba, Tokyo, Japan.
