This year, we proudly celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Siren Festival. In the history of the our free Coney Island corndog bonanza, no band has ever played Siren twice. This was a conscious decision on behalf of our fearless festival founder and organizer (who we’ve kindly rewarded with her own SOTC category), who long ago decided that if this crazy all-ages, free show thing ever reached ten years, Siren would rehost some of its best performers.
Let’s not pretend. Yes, we work for the company that sponsors this thing. Yes, those sorts of situations can be precarious. But if you can’t share our genuine enthusiasm and note our public critical track-record for adoring the following bands, we just can’t be friends.
Matt & Kim (Class of Siren, 2007)
Ted Leo (Class of Siren, 2003)
Pains of Being Pure at Heart (SXSW VVM party, 2010)
Harlem (Pre-frosh 2010)
DJs + more to be announced!
Free! All Ages! Rain or Shine!
