FREE: Siren Festival on Coney Island

Few places in New York are as mythic and storied as Coney Island. From the Wonder Wheel to the Cyclone, to Nathan’s to the the beach itself, the place is unlike any other in the city and that’s only one reason why you should check out today’s Siren Festival.

Produced by the Village Voice this free, all-ages day long showcase is featuring Built to Spill, Spank Rock, the Ravonettes and many more, plus an after-party where the amazing Francis and the Lights is set to perform; do NOT miss them, they are sick and you wanna be able to say you saw them before they get crazy big.

The show is FREE and the schedule is here, so get on the train and feel that salty breeze in your face as you listen to some awesome music, eat a hot dog and enjoy summertime at one of the New York-iest places in New York.

Like most kids, Ashley grew up in New Jersey. Unlike most kids the Friedman's televison set acted as a third parent, imbuing young Ashley with the stern moral values of Claire Huxtable, the dramatic tendencies of Brenda Walsh and the earnest hopefulness of the blond kid on Silver Spoons. After graduating from Sarah Lawrence Ashley made her way to the Park Slope area of Brooklyn where she can currently be found reading foreign fashion magazines, scouring ebay for vintage heels, eating out in restaurants and otherwise stretching her meager income as far as it will go in NYC.
