The very talented folk singer and recent BlackBook feature subject Sharon Van Etten is one of many ecstatic squeal-inducing additions to the ATP I’ll Be Your Mirror Festival this September. This morning, the festival, this time around curated by Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli, announced a hefty chunk of its lineup, and the people saw it, and it was good.
In addition to Van Etten and Dulli’s own celebrated group, he’s chosen some crazy exciting acts to share the stage: Louis C.K., The Roots (plus a DJ set from ?uestlove!), fellow rock ‘n’ soul ensemble the Dirtbombs (performing Ultraglide in Black, which you should probably listen to right now, because better Friday morning music you will not find), riot grrrl icons Scrawl, The Mark Lanegan Band, The Antlers, José Gonzalez, Dirty Three, Emeralds, Vetiver, Quintron & Miss Pussycat, Charles Bradley & The Extraordinaires and Reigning Sound.
The ATP team round out the lineup announcements with The Make-Up (who will be getting back together JUST FOR YOU GUYS at I’ll Be Your Mirror), Hot Snakes, The Magic Band, Autolux, Thee Oh Sees, Factory Floor, Death Grips and I Break Horses, with many more likely to be announced.
Tickets for I’ll Be Your Mirror go on sale on Monday, and there are still tickets left for the Mogwai-curated, Gen-X-nostalgia-packed IBYM London show in May, which features the Melvins, Archers of Loaf, Mudhoney and Slayer performing Reign In Blood. Rock on.
