Stage times for the now annual trip to ATP have been listed here!
First and most obvious tough choices, night one… Calexico and the Walkmen (only one winner really, seen Calexico a 100 times), but otherwise, it doesn’t look too bad. I’ve left off the smaller stages below, but there’s some good stuff on those also. Who do we need to research? any tips from anyone on who not to miss?

5pm-5.45pm – AVI BUFFALO – nice melodic stuff, a nice slow start really.
