Jim Jarmusch To Curate ATP

Music has always been important to filmmaker Jim Jarmusch. Singer-songwriter Tom Waits played a lead role in Jarmusch’s Down by Law, and two of Waits’ songs were on the soundtrack. It was Jarmusch, not Tarrantino, who first tapped Wutang Clan master producer RZA to score a film, Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai. Now Jarmusch is making waves in the music world; he will curate the 2010 All Tomorrow’s Parties (ATP) Festival in Monticello, New York featuring performances by Raekown, Fucked Up and the Vivian girls amongst others.
