malkmus Stephen Malkmus, Broken Social Scene, Dragons of Zynth to Play Siren FestivalEven on dreary days like today, we can smell the old-hot-dog-and-rotting-garbage-breeze blowing in festival season this summer. At Coney Island, the Village Voice’s 8th Annual Siren Music Festival on July 19 is one main events, with a decent line-up this year. Pitchfork alerts us that Indie rock god Stephen Malkmus (Pavement reunion, please!) and the Jicks, Canadian noise rockers Broken Social Scene and CMJ Music Festival darlings Parts & Labor and Dragons of Zynth will be playing, along with Beach House, Times New Viking, the Dodos, Annuals, the Helio Sequence, These Are Powers, Film School, and Jaguar Love.
