Matt Groening (of The Simpsons) tapped as ATP 2010’s other curator

In news that you just can’t make up, All Tomorrow’s Parties has tapped Matt Groening, as in the guy who created The Simpsons and Futurama, to join the previously announced Pavement as curators of next year’s All Tommorow’s Parties.

Groening will choose the lineup for weekend #1 of the festival, which takes place from May 7-9, 2010 at Butlins in Minehead, England (Pavement will handle weekend #2). And, as Prefix points out, if you put much stock in past history — Groening previously curated an ATP event in Los Angeles in 2003, where he chose Cat Power, Sonic Youth, The Shins, Daniel Johnston, and others to appear — the bill will probably turn out alright.

None of Groening’s selections have been unveiled yet (keep an eye here), but tickets will go on sale beginning this Friday, October 16th via
