      Lou Barlow To Perform Elliott Smith Tribute at ATP Pacific 2003

      [Posted Friday, November 7th, 2003 06:00:00 Pitchfork Central Time]

      Marnie Christenson reports:
      The Los Angeles-area edition of this year's All Tomorrow's Parties festival
      (dubbed ATP Pacific 2003 by its organizers), which takes place this coming
      weekend aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA, has announced that a
      tribute to Elliott Smith will fill the spot left vacant by the late artist.
      The tribute, which will be led by Folk Implosion /Sebadoh
      /all-around-indie-rock-drifter Lou Barlow, takes the stage on Sunday
      between sets from Mission of Burma and The Mars Volta. In addition to
      Barlow, the tribute band will consist of musicians who had played with
      Smith in the three years since Figure 8 including Goldenboy's Shon Sullivan
      on guitar, 764-HERO's Robin Peringer on bass, Sense Field's Scott McPherson
      on drums, and Earlimart's Ariana Murray on keyboards. They plan to cover
      six Smith tracks and a Minders song. For the latter, Minders frontman
      Martyn Leaper will join in (the Minders were one of Smith's favorite bands).

      Lou Barlow was also among a handful of musicians who paid tribute to Smith
      Monday night at a memorial benefit at the Henry Fonda Theater in Los
      Angeles. Barlow performed an acoustic version of "Division Day" at the
      show; Beck performed "Ballad of Big Nothing," "Clementine", and "Alameda";
      Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis sang an acapella version of "I Didn't Understand"
      from XO and was joined by the rest of her band for a rendition of "The
      Biggest Lie" from his self-titled record. Also appearing were Beth Orton,
      John Doe of X, Papa M, Radar Brothers, and Alaska!. The concert was
      recorded for a possible tribute album.

      Proceeds from Monday's tribute were donated to the Elliott Smith Foundation
      For Abused Children. If you couldn't count yourself among the lucky few who
      witnessed the event and therefore contributed, you can donate via check or
