All Tomorrow’s Parties is returning to the East Coast this September with a new location: Ashbury Park, NJ! This time around, Portishead will curate the annual “I’ll Be Your Mirror” event, which will also include two headlining performances by the group itself, their first East Coast shows since, what, 1998? Jesus.
Portishead have so far tapped Chavez, Shellac, Cults, and The Album Leaf, with more than 30 more acts to be announced. AND OH, I ALMOST FORGOT: THEY ALSO INVITED JEFF MANGUM!
That’s right: Jeff Mangum’s heading to the Jersey shore! He’ll perform Neutral Milk Hotel songs — as he has done recently — but don’t be surprised if he brings along a few new tunes. Maybe he’ll show up nude!
Mangum is playing Friday night at the Paramount Theatre (the smaller, more intimate of the bunch), and only people who purchase 3-day passes will be able to check it out. In other words, pony up the dough. Tickets go on sale this Friday.
