After announcing the initial line-up and dates for next year's All Tommorow's Parties New York fest just a few weeks ago, the ATP organizers must be overcome with the spirit of giving -- they announced today that The Flaming Lips will curate the final day of ATP NY 2009.
As curators, the band will perform and select around 15 bands and artists to play on their hand-crafted day, Sunday, Sept. 13. ATP is sticking to the 2008 format, with Don't Look Back sets on Friday as well as comedy, an ATP-curated day of bands on Saturday and of course, The Lips' bands of choice on Sunday. The ATP curators also announced today that Autolux and Black Dice have been added to Saturday's line-up.
Tickets and rooms at Kutshers (and another nearby hotel) are now on sale. Weekend passes will run you $235 each in addition to a booking fee. Rooms cost $150 per person.

Friday (09.11.09) Don’t Look Back and Comedy:
