All Tomorrow’s Profiles…Your Guide To ATP AP: Shellac

  • There’s too much to say about this group of musicians so I’ll keep it short.
  • Steve Albini, Bob Weston, and Todd Trainer despise the record industry and corporately funded festivals…which is why ATP is the only festival the guys will allow themselves to be involved with.
  • Albini (Big Black, Rapeman), a former journalist (graduated with a degree in journalism from Northwestern University), current record producer (Electrical Audio in Chicago, also worked on Nirvana’s In Utero), Independent Music advocate, and Sub Pop Records revolutionary (he opened the 1986 Sub Pop 100 mixtape) is the front-man.
  • The band curated the ATP event in the U.K. in 2002 and played first all three days so as to prompt patrons to stay for the entire day to see the lesser known acts on the bill.

NOTE: Shellac performs Friday evening at the Convention Hall at 8:30 p.m.
