Jim Jarmusch to curate one day of ATP

Director's bill to include Brian Jonestown Massacre, Raekwon

Helmer Jim Jarmusch will curate one day of the three-day 2010 All Tomorrow’s Parties New York in September.

Acts on Jarmusch’s Sept. 5 bill at Kutsher’s Country Club in Monticello, N.Y., will include L.A.’s Brian Jonestown Massacre (subject of Ondi Timoner’s 2004 documentary “Dig!”), rapper Raekwon, Austin psychedelic rockers the Black Angels, and femme New York group Vivian Girls.

Music and musicians have played key roles in Jarmusch’s films since the beginning of his career. Neil Young wrote the soundtrack to his 1995 Western “Dead Man,” and Jarmusch directed the 1997 Young documentary “Year of the Horse.” Actors in Jarmusch pics have included Tom Waits, Joe Strummer, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, John Lurie, Iggy Pop, GZA and the RZA of Wu-Tang Clan and the White Stripes, among others.

ATP, which will run Sept. 3-5, will also feature headline appearances by Iggy and the Stooges (performing the “Raw Power” album in its entirety), Australia’s Scientists (making their first U.S. appearance), Mudhoney (playing “Superfuzz Bigmuff”) and Sonic Youth.

Fest will include film screenings mounted by high-end DVD company the Criterion Collection.
