The Schaeffer Eye Center Crawfish Boil has let slip another act for the 2010 lineup: the B-52s. The Athens, Ga., band is best known for its quirky rock hits “Rock Lobster” and “Love Shack.”

The B-52s will play April 30 May 1. The two-day music festival previously announced its first act, Alice in Chains.

Update: The Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis also lists the B-52s for that same night. That might mean that the B-52s aren’t scheduled to play at the Crawfish Festival until May 1, or not at all.

Update March 18: Confirmed. Despite the mock-up graphic above, the B-52s will play at 6:20 p.m. May 1.

The festival takes place April 30 and May 1 next to the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex [satellite view]. No word on ticket prices yet.
