ALL TOMORROW’S PARTIES – THE FILM

ALL TOMORROW’S PARTIES – THE FILM (photo)

Posted by on

The concert festival, All Tomorrow’s Parties, began in 1999 in England in answer to lame, corporate sponsored events (at say Reading or Glastonbury). It’s brilliant locale is some kind of very British Holiday camp, at Camber Sands, East Sussex. Since ’99 it’s expanded to the US and if you were lucky, perhaps you were at Kutshers Country Club, Monticello, New York last year. But ATP is cool beyond it’s idyllic locations, it’s curated by a different artist/band each year so not only is it diverse but you get to check out what bands people like Devendra Banhart or Vincent Gallo like freaking out too. ATP notably hosted the return of My Bloody Valentine in ’08 and had Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds programme it’s debut in Australia earlier this year. Welly, welly, welly, well!

A documentary on this now legendary festival screened at SXSW and just premiered in the UK yesterday at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. It’ll have a wider multi-platform release September 23. Battles, Sonic Youth, Animal Collective, Grinderman, Iggy and the Stooges, Portishead, Mogwai, and Grizzly Bear are featured among others. Others like ATP veterans Belle and Sebastian, whom an irritated Spanish roommate of mine once likened to “the sound of shopping for broccoli on a Sunday.” I hated him for saying that cause it made me feel like a pussy for liking them. Oh well, they do kind of sound like that.

Check out the trailer, a loving, unabashed rip off of Stanley Kubrick’s trailer for “A Clockwork Orange.”

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.

With all the holiday meals, there may be some…embigenning.
