Public Enemy Added To ATP America's I'll Be Your Mirror Festival, Performing Fear Of A Black Planet In Full

Yeah, the title of this post summed it up and should have made the whole lot of you simultaneously yell "HOLY SHIT," but let's break it down anyway.

As reported by Pitchfork, the upcoming All Tomorrow's Parties (ATP) America: I'll Be Your Mirror Festival slated to take place in nearby Asbury Park, NJ from September 30 - October 2 is already packed to the brim with performances by festival curators Portishead, indie legend Jeff Mangum (Neutral Milk Hotel), Mogwai, Deerhoof, and more. Well it looks like there was a bit more room for mindblowing greatness, as seminal hip-hop group Public Enemy is not only on the bill, but they'll be performing their genre-defining 1990 classic Fear of a Black Planet in full.

They'll be throwing down on Sunday at the Festival - check out the latest ticket options here and the video for "Fight The Power" below the jump, which I last saw a month or two ago at the Museum of Modern F&*king Art (MoMA). You'd better believe Fucking Nostalgic will be onsite for a special ATP report when it all happens.
