Portishead's ATP: I'll Be Your Mirror just got way fucking cooler: Thinking Fellers Union, Reggie Watts, and more Jeff Mangum

If a handful of Jeff Mangum performances, the Ultramagnetic MCs, Portishead, Shellac, and plenty more artists weren’t enough to convince you that the Portishead-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties: I’ll Be Your Mirror is going to be dope, then maybe the newest round of announcements from the festival will.

First up, it’s been confirmed that Jeff Mangum will play an extra show on Sunday. Mangum agreed to the extra show as long as music critics the world over agree to stop referring to him as reclusive. ATP has also announced that a whole new super-special type of ticket to the festival has been announced to accomodate the newly announced show: what used to be called “Three Day Jeff Mangum Passes” have now been broken down into “Three Day Jeff Mangum Sunday Passes” and “Three Day Jeff Mangum Friday Passes,” depending on which one of the days you want to see Jeff, although I recommend Friday because Mangum is always worn out by the end of the weekend and usually just spends Sunday reading the paper and napping.

If you’re not a Mangum fan and couldn’t give a shit about reclusive musicians, ATP has also beefed up the artists playing on Friday and Saturday of the show. Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 (making their return to live performances), Factory Floor, Awesome Tapes From Africa DJs, as well as comedic acts Reggie Watts, Hannibal Buress, and Rory Scovel have been added to Friday. Saturday sees the additions of Marc Ribot’s Ceramic Dog and Colin Stetson, while Sunday is still waiting for more confirmations but they’ve gotta be better announcements than Jeff Mangum if they’re taking this long to reveal them. Perhaps it’s Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa risen from the grave to perform their collaborative album Zappin’ the Drix?
