Looks like that's it.
Also confirmed are ATP fan favourite HANNIBAL BURESS who joins the Friday comedy line-up, and a second performance from ex-Sonic Youth member LEE RANALDO - his previously announced Friday night performance will now be a special 'Hanging Guitars' show, and he plays an extra full band show featuring Steve Shelley on drums on the Sunday. EDAN THE DEEJAY also returns to ATP for one of his inimitable DJ sets on the Friday.

Today in the lead up to the ATP I'll Be Your Mirror festival in New York City this September 21st - 23rd, ATP launch an instagram scavenger hunt where you can win tickets to ATP, three nights accommodation at the Ace Hotel during the festival, Greg Dulli curated books, Criterion Blurays and DVDs.
This Friday the 14th of September we will be announcing the films and books chosen by Greg Dulli as part of his curation of the festival. Two of the books will be discussed at the festival (hosted by Lapham’s Quarterly), and the films will be shown in a cinema at the festival alongside other programming by The Criterion Collection and ATP.
For the scavenger hunt, we have left copies of some of the books and films featured at the event at various shops and businesses around New York City. Clues as to the locations of where we have placed a book or film are below. Just work out the location, and ask inside the business to discover if your guess is correct. Be the first to Instagram a photo of the book or film to us at @atpfestival with #ATPNYC and the shop name, and then keep that item as a prize..
The person that is the first to send in a photo, announcing a film or book as part of the line-up enters into a drawing to win 2 tickets to ATP, a room at The Ace Hotel for the 3 nights of the event and a bumper pack of books and Criterion films in the festival.

Annnnnnnnd Chavez is out, JEFF the Brotherhood is in.
What happens if it rains? The main stage is indoors, and although the second stage audience area is outside all performances will still go ahead as the stage itself is undercover.
I miss Asbury Park already.
According to ATP the second stage is under the FDR bridge. While a bit better, it still concerns me.
EDIT: Had to rethink my LES geography.
A small stage under the FDR probably won't be that bad. Any idea how many people they're expecting at this thing? the FDR is 6 lanes wide down there so should provide some pretty substantial coverage, just get towards the middle and you should stay dry in the event of rain. If it's anything like this past weekend, though, you won't have to worry about it.
Edit: Looks like 20% chance of rain this weekend, so you guys should be fine.
