Warp Films and ATP have programmed a unique UK cinematic/live tour of the documentary ALL TOMORROW’S PARTIES screening together with a live concert from Brooklyn based art-rockers Les Savy Fav plus a DJ set by ATP founder Barry Hogan, from 23 October 2009, prior to the DVD release on 2 November 2009.
Condensing 800 hours of footage from 200 contributors including fans and musicians that have attended recent festivals, All Tomorrow’s Parties is the result of a project to document the legendary cult music festival from it’s beginnings. With key contributions from co-director Jonathan Caouette (Tarnation) and cinematographer Vincent Moon (The Take Away Shows, Arcade Fire) and featuring amongst others: Belle And Sebastian, Grizzly Bear, Sonic Youth, Battles, Portishead, Daniel Johnston, Grinderman, David Cross, Animal Collective, The Boredoms, Mogwai, Slint, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Gossip, GZA, Seasick Steve, Iggy and the Stooges, F**k Buttons, Shellac, Patti Smith John Cooper Clark and of course Dirty Three.
The film’s been described as “a rousing, kaleidoscopic celebration of the seaside indie-rock festival” (Time Out), and together with Les Savy Fav’s jaw dropping stage antics, audiences will experience what happens when experimental film and music collide in these one off special events. The ‘one night only’ theatrical tour, with Les Savy Fav, will visit Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds and London from Oct 23 – 28, with special events also taking place in Brighton, Bristol and Hull.
