It's not quite a year away, but the performers for next year’s “All Tomorrow’s Parties” festival in Monticello, NY, on September 3-5 (Labor Day week-end) have been officially announced…at least for the first day.
Following a trend that is quickly becoming a popular, albeit lazy, occurrence in live concerts, the first day of the festival will feature bands playing some of their more popular albums in their entirety. Day one headliners, Iggy and the Stooges, will be playing all the tracks from their classic noise-punk album Raw Power. The three main supporting acts, Mudhoney, The Scientists, and reunited Sleep, will also be performing Superfuzz Bigmuff, Blood Red River, and Holy Mountain, respectively. This replaying of band’s classic albums is part of a series titled “Don’t Look Back.”
Adorned with a cover photo of Kurt Cobain, the newly released Grunge photo book chronicles the pivotal scene that dominated the music in the Pacific Northwest during the late eighties and early nineties. The photos, comprised from Sub Pop photographer Michael Lavine’s personal collection, provide an unabridged look at the bands that dominated the pivotal scene in American music as well as a look at the group of young fans disenfranchised by an over-commercialized music scene. Lavine contributed to the alternative Sub Pop aesthetic by providing the album art photos for Nirvana, Mudhoney, Dwarves, Screaming Trees, and others.
