Band of Ballers 2010

of Montreal will make a very special appearance in Atlanta on May 1st. As you may know (but most likely not), Converse has been hosting a special streetball tournament for musicians for a couple of years, and of Montreal is one of the many bands/DJs/crews on the list this year.

As you can see in the video below, they mean business. I'm quite concerned that no-one on the team is over 6ft, but I'm sure the costumes (or lack of - uh, Jamey?) and the glitter makeup will give them that special edge (though I wouldn't put it past the Black Lips to puke on their opponents, and who can top that)

Here is the official poster for this special event :

The rules seem simple enough : 3 on 3 (who's going to sit it out, uh?), Bracket style, Half-court, play to 10 and win by 2. Do they have a chance at this? Well it is time for them to prove that all the sports talk and the push-ups were not just for show.
If you can't afford a ticket, the Smoking Session is giving away 5, so head over there to enter the competition and show TeoM (that would be Team of Montreal) some love on May 1st.

Time for Kevin to deliver his "jumpshot with sparkly nails" and "freak their minds."
