Greenhornes, Girls Close Out All Tomorrow's Parties

Watch our video of the best songs from Sunday's lineup

With headlining acts including the Stooges, Sonic Youth, and stoner-rock pioneers Sleep, All Tomorrow’s Parties in New York focused less on trendy young bands and more on heavy, brooding guitars. One of the festival’s best acts was the Greenhornes, who curator Jim Jarmusch booked to play one of their first shows in five years on Sunday. The Cincinnati garage-blues trio went on hiatus in 2005 when drummer Patrick Keeler and bassist Jack Lawrence joined Jack White in the Raconteurs (Lawrence also later played in the Dead Weather). We discuss the band's forthcoming album Four Stars (our October 26th) in the video above, and show their performance of their eerie 2002 song “There is an End."

Later in the day, Girls played a set of girl group-inspired pop drowned in distorted guitars. Watch “Morning Light,” where frontman Christopher Owens takes a slide to his vintage Rickenbacker.

We also caught up with comedian Hannibal Buress. Buress wrote for Saturday Night Live last season and just announced he’ll write for 30 Rock this fall. He performed a hilarious surprise set on the main stage to replace GZA, who switched set times at the last minute. In our video, Buress corners festivalgoers, discusses 30 Rock and recalls a puzzling ATP moment earlier in the day: ‘This girl asked me if I was excited to see GZA and Raekwon. I’m like, ‘Why can I only be excited about them? Cause I’m black? She was right, though.”
