The Black Lips addition to the lineup is an interesting one. In Christopher R. Weingarten's Oral History of ATP, published by the Village Voice back in Sept. 2009, festival organizer Barry Hogan didn't mince words when it came to his feelings about the group after they were reportedly caught stealing alcohol from someone's chalet at the festival:
"Killing Joke and the Butthole Surfers will never play ATP again, and they can both suck my balls. And you can put that in print. The Black Lips will never play again - they're assholes. They broke into a chalet and started stealing stuff."
Apparently they've made amends, because there they are on the lineup, "officially pardoned by ATP."
More acts will be unveiled a little further down the line. Get your tickets.
