Sundance cafe lines up acts


NEW YORK -- Gavin DeGraw, Goo Goo Dolls frontman John Rzeznik and Train singer Pat Monahan are set to perform for the 10th anniversary of the ASCAP-produced Music Cafe at this month's Sundance Film Festival.

The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers also has booked songwriters Mike Viola and Dan Bern to perform their country and rock parodies from "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story."

ASCAP already has scheduled breakout performer Ingrid Michaelson, rock veterans Patti Smith and Tim Finn and more than two dozen additional acts for its anniversary celebration.

Along with Smith, artists DAM, Abeer, PR and Mahmoud Shalabi will appear in conjunction with their Sundance feature "Slingshot Hip-Hop." Others in the Cafe lineup include Peter & Gordon, Missy Higgins, Butch Walker and Motion City Soundtrack.

Other ASCAP artists featured in two rockumentaries at the fest are David Crosby, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills and Neil Young ("CSNY Deja Vu") and U2 ("U2 3D").

The Music Cafe will be held every afternoon from Jan. 18-26 at the Star Bar in Park City.
