2009 Siren Festival Announced

04/28/2009 12:32 PM |

Do you realize the Village Voice’s Siren Festival is now in its ninth year? It seems like just yesterday that the first year’s bill, featuring Enon, Superchunk, Guided By Voices, Man or Astro-Man? and the John Spencer Blues Explosion, was announced. This morning, they released the initial lineup for this year’s festival, taking place, as ever, in Coney Island, on July 18th. The headliner would have fit perfectly alongside all those bands from year one, but I’m certainly not complaining.

The Voice’s post after the jump.

It’s a 90-degree day in April and there is nothing we’d rather be doing than thinking about rollercoasters and beaches and sun and Coney Island hijinks and rubbing butts with half-naked strangers who should really be wearing more than that, come on now. So we’re downright ebullient to announce the official details on this year’s Siren Festival, which will, as always be free, all ages, and rain or shine. It’ll take place on Saturday, July 18 and likely involve a crowd-surfing drummer. Without further adieu:
