Atlanta, Georgia’s reigning kings of flower punk The Black Lips will be putting their game faces on to participate in Converse’s "Band of Ballers" basketball tournament in Atlanta on Saturday, May 1st. Joining the fray will be teams comprised of other key players from the local music scene including, but not limited to, Jim Jones, Shawty Lo, Pill, Of Montreal, OJ Da Juiceman, Jay Electronica, Donnis, Sean Price, and Jermaine Dupri.

The band will be receiving $5,000.00 for their participation in the event, the whole of which they will be donating to the Auditory Verbal Centre Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to the rehabilitation of deaf children, some of whom have been outfitted with cochlear implants in order to play music. More info on the charity can be found here: http://www.avchears.org/
 
The Black Lips are challenging the other players to do the same with their participation fees.
 
Here is a hilarious video to promote the bands' involvement in the tournament. Check it out here:

Tickets giveaways will also be occurring through V103 Radio and various Atlanta music blogs.
