Yeah Yeahs Yeahs and Grizzly Bear are to curate the third edition of ATP’s ‘I’ll Be Your Mirror’ shindig at London’s Alexandra Palace.
The 2013 bill looks a shade less varied than previous years – Portishead’s bill boasted GY!BE, PJ Harvey and Company Flow – but it’s still a fine selection. Saturday May 4 sees the Yeah Yeah Yeahs sign up for an exclusive London show, and they’ve invited along Swedish loop manipulator The Field and wonderfully twisted lo-fi dude Dirty Beaches. The Bad Seeds’ Mick Harvey will perform a set of Serge Gainsbourg covers, and Anika, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Black Lips and King Khan And The Shrines will also head along for the ride.
Sunday May 5, meanwhile, will see Grizzly Bear on headlining/curatorial duty. Tortoise is their big steal, and they’ll also welcome a performance from veteran songwriter Van Dyke Parks. Real Estate, The Walkmen, I Break Horses and Cass McCombs are also on the bill.
