I am very excited that the New York Dolls are headlining the Siren Festival this Saturday. Very fitting to have a quintessential band from NYC (often emulated never duplicated!) do that job and play Coney Island this last summer as we know it. I saw the revived NY Dolls twice last year and I have to say the concert at the South Street Seaport was hands down my favorite show of the summer. Even though they old, they still ROCK THE PANTS OFF the kids more than HALF their age! Speaking of kids,The Black Lips are playing too...yeah!
Other bands performing on the two stages from noon till 9pm are : M.I.A., We Are Scientists, Noisettes, Dr. Dog, The Twilight Sad, Cursive, Voxtroot, Matt & Kim, Lavender Diamond, Detroit Cobras and a few others....this festival is FREE!
P.S- David Jo was THE BEST "King Neptune" (2006) that The Mermaid Parade ever had! ( I mean who WAS that guy they had this year? From "The DIscovery Channel"? Puh-LEE-as!!!!)
