Shoot the Freak: Siren on Coney Island

Shoot the Freak: Siren on Coney Island

For the 8th consecutive year, The Village Voice hosted thousands of New Yorkers for a free day of music on Coney Island. The Siren Music Festival is something I’ve heard about for years, and couldn’t miss the chance to attend this year’s event on Saturday afternoon. Especially because legendary Coney Island is about to face some massive renovations. Here are some photos from the day:

(A view of the crowds at the Stillwell Stage.)

(Annuals, a great band from North Carolina, tore through an early set with songs from their splendid album Be He Me, as well as some cuts from their upcoming LP.)

(Baltimore’s Beach House brought their hazey dream-pop to the sun-drenched audience.)

(The view of Coney Island Beach, and the famous boardwalk.)

(The Helio Sequence, one of Portland’s finest, wowed the crowd near the end of the day with a blistering set mostly of songs from their great new album.)

(A prominent sign in Coney Island touts the famous annual hot dog eating contests each 4th of July. The countdown begins for next year.)

Thanks to Tony Ortega and Robert Wilonsky for the special hook-ups.
