Greetings from ATP NY!

Well, technically I'm about a 15 minute drive away, hooked up through complimentary wireless at a Days Inn in scenic Liberty, NY. Just finished a four-hour solo drive from Boston, and roughly three hours from now, down route 17 at Kutsher's Country Club in Monticello, Bardo Pond will take the stage as the very first performer of the inaugural All Tomorrow's Parties NY festival. Between now and the finale, 35 bands (and 4 comedians) will be split between two stages, with fest closers My Bloody Valentine finishing things off in the early hours of Monday morning. My ears are rested and ready.

The killer schedule...
