Portishead to curate ATP New York; Metal legends team up in California; Yelawolf hits D.C.
- An autumn version of the popular All Tomorrow's Parties festival will take place in Asbury Park, N.J. and be headlined and curated by Portishead, while also featuring a very rare performance by Neutral Milk Hotel frontman Jeff Mangum. Chavez, Shellac, Cults, and the Album Leaf are also scheduled to play the Friday date of the festival, with Saturday and Sunday lineups to be announced later.
- In other non-D.C. mega-concert news, the opposite of Portishead/Jeff Mangum will go down in Indio, Calif. on April 23 when heavy metal overlords Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax will share a bill. \m/ \m/ \m/ \m/
- The Library of Congress recently received the largest single audio donation in its history, more than 200,000 master discs from 1926 to 1948, including music from the likes of Louis Armstrong, Billie Holliday and Ella Fitzgerald.
