If You Missed a Band at Siren, Have No Fear, They Just Might Be Coming Back
Nate "Igor" Smith Japandroids
Now that Siren Festival is over, the sundry bands who played the Voice's Coney Island hotdogging extravaganza can announce their next New York shows without worrying about your proscratinated attendance. So if you did, perchance, miss an act you meant to see--either because you loitered too long somewhere or drunk mooks kept cutting you in the bathroom line (we actually opened the unlocked Port-a-Potty door on one of these assholes and it was sweet revenge) or, pray tell, you didn't actually go to Siren because you were busy taking care of homeless AIDS patients (the only acceptable excuse)--most of these guys will be back in the fall. Built To Spill, as we already told you, are headlining Webster Hall for two days in October. But The Raveonettes, Japandroids, The Ohsees, Micachu and the Shapes, Monotonix, and A Place To Bury Strangers have also declared their intentions to return to our fair stages. Dates and info below.
The Raveonettes will play Webster Hall on Oct 14 and the Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 18. Tickets onsale tomorrow at noon.
Micachu and the Shapes will be playing with Chairlift on September 5 at the Bowery Ballroom, though Bowery Presents hasn't officially announced the show.
Thee Ohsees, Thursday, October 8, Mercury Lounge, with the Fresh and Onlys [Tix]
Spank Rock may or may not be playing a bridge or an after-hours spot near you.
And once again, Built To Spill are gonna be at Webster Hall.
