S.M.S. Goes To the Siren Music Festival

S.M.S is going to NYC or more specifically Coney Island for this years Siren Music Festival. The free music festival is put on by the Village Voice, an NYC news/entertainment publication. This years lineup doesn't quite compare to major music festivals, but is impressive nonetheless. My personal favorites on the lineup are Built to Spill, A Place to Bury Strangers, The Raveonnettes, and the Japandroids. A Place to Bury Strangers is a great NYC-based band with Joy Division style vocals and an incredibly loud and psychedelic set. The Raveonnettes are a Velvet Underground influenced Danish-Duo who are making some great distortion-laden pop songs. The Japandroids are a Canadian rock band with an awesome name. They have been getting a lot of hype from places like Pitchfork and All Songs Considered.
The Lineup

Unfortunately the festival is the same day as a show at Other Music by Tortoise who just released a great new album.
