Every year we're drawn to the Coney Island shoreline by the sirens...or at least, The Village Voice Siren Festival. This year they seem a bit more on top of things, announcing their initial lineup today -- a full two months before the show!
This year's fest, their 8th, is being held on July 19th and promises some big names (drum roll please):
AND THE JICKS, BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE,
THE HELIO SEQUENCE, BEACH HOUSE, TIMES NEW VIKING,
JAGUAR LOVE, THE DODOS, ANNUALS, FILM SCHOOL,
PARTS & LABOR, DRAGONS OF ZYNTH, THESE ARE POWERS
and more to be announced!
Other than the names, not much else has changed (unusual when Coney Island is involved); the show will be held from noon to 9 p.m. at the same location, and is free for all.
This year's poster artwork, by the usual artist Paul Antonson, looks a little foreboding, no?
