Currently the weather isn't looking so great for tomorrow's Siren Festival. The image accompanying the forecast looks downright terrifying, but the actual forecast seems alright. We ain't scared of no thunderstorms!
Look at it this way, a little rain will thin the crowd out and make the lines shorter. Not to mention cool us all off. Now let's get to what really matters, the lineup. Here's our plan for the day...
Realistically, we won't arrive until 2pm. We learned our lesson from last year when we arrived very early and ended up falling asleep against a wire fence during Death Cab's set.
2pm: Ambulance LTD.
Not being fans of the Dears or Morningwood, we will most likely take part in the free beer tent for about an hour. This will be a mistake, but we won't find this out until we're drunk and passed out during Spoon at 7:30pm.
At 4 and 4:30 we have Q and Not U versus Diamond Nights. Tough call, we'll try to do both - fail - and end up watching whatever is closest.
5pm: Dungen, no question.
6pm: Brendan Benson and 7:30Spoon.
Last year Gothamist got to meet Ben Gibbard. Will we get Britt Daniel to put his sweaty arm around us? Only time will tell. Stay tuned.
