The Village Voice has announced some of the bands that will be playing at this years Siren Festival. We've enjoyed going to these for the past few years, and are always excited to start hearing about who's going to play. Here's what they've got so far:

Stars
Tapes 'N Tapes
The Stills
The Cribs
Celebration
She Wants Revenge

Aside from those last two, that's the foundation for a pretty good lineup. Actually, we don't really love the Stills either. We're psyched to finally see Stars on the bill though. And who doesn't love a little Cowbell by Tapes 'n Tapes? Listen: cowbell.mp3
