Silver Apples tour Europe, rock ATP, and still wish a pox on you after 42 years

Silver Apples tour Europe, rock ATP, and still wish a pox on you after 42 years

Legendary 1960s psychedelic electronic freaks Silver Apples are lovingly swaddling their oscillators in, um… oscillator cases, and preparing for another whiz bang performance at All Tomorrow’s Parties. This go-around takes place in Asbury Park, New Jersey where Mr. Silver Apples himself Simeon and his synthesizer, also named Simeon (I did not make that up) will be joined by the psychically teleported spirit of 1973 Bruce Springsteen, the smiling faces of Portishead (who curated the festival, and do, on occasion, smile) and hundreds of lucky, lucky ATP I’ll Be Your Mirror US Edition attendees. ATP takes on NJ during the September 30-October 2 weekend, but if you’re not one of the chosen few currently staking out good spots to pass out under the boardwalk, you need not fret any longer, because Silver Apples are coming to Europe!!!!! (Oh, you don’t live in Europe? Forget I said anything.)

Simeon and his Simeon will be rockin’ faces at Public Assembly in NYC a few days after ATP wraps up, giving attendees just enough time to recover from their ATP hangovers. (Trust me: it will take four days.) Then it’s off to Paris, where they’ll travel together, side by side, just a boy and his synthesizer, to take on festivals in France, Germany, and England. They’ll be swinging through the swingin’ hotspots all across the continent, and even venturing into Russia, where it’s rumored they’ll open for TATU. (JK, that won’t happen. TATU will open for THEM.) If you’re not going to ATP, you don’t live in NYC, and you can’t winter in Europe, well get out your credit card and jump on a plane, because the two Simeons are living legends. Consider this required listening and get back to school.
