Frightened Rabbit @ Siren Music Festival
The ninth annual Village Voice Siren Music Festival took place on Saturday, and I made the trek out to Coney Island primarily to see Frightened Rabbit. I last saw the band perform at Le Poisson Rouge back in February, and I was excited to see them play again, but this time outside.
I did manage to get a really good view of the stage— perhaps this was because I was let in through a side entrance that was later blocked off. Lead singer Scott Hutchison seemed to like Coney Island, though I think the thunderous sound of the Cyclone roller coaster going by every minute or two sort of caught him off guard. While most of the band members did not let the 80-degree heat stop them from wearing their signature plaid button down shirts, they did decide to break out the sunglasses for the occasion.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s my 13,000 word essay about the day.
