Kudos to the L crew for whipping up one of the more entertaining (and informative!) multiple-artist Q&A gambits in recent memory: “It’s 95 degrees. It’s humid. You’re playing an outdoor show. Shorts on stage: Yes or no?” Don’t act like you don’t want to know how Ted Leo answered this question.
In the affirmative! Specifically, “a crusty pair of cut-off black jeans being acceptable from time to time.” Coupled with Peggy from the Pains of Being Pure at Heart’s apparent abiding love for cargo shorts, this could wind up being one of the more sartorially harrowing Siren Festivals in recent memory. And that’s assuming Matt & Kim wear pants at all.
