Villiage Voice Siren Festival 2007

Interesting line-up. The New York Dolls are a fitting headliner and the Black Lips, Noisettes, and Elvis Perkins definitely should be there. But We Are Scientists? What is this, 2005? The Detroit Cobras? Rachel and co. are always fun but they are very marginalized and what is this, 2003?

This is the last year of Astroland (probably a good thing) so this will be a special Siren fest. It will be time to reflect on years past. Some of the line-ups have been extraordinary (2002, 2003, and 2004 were practically legendary) but it's been slacking & lacking the last few years. Maybe the Dolls and the Lips will give it a much needed kick in the ass.
