The Village Voice Siren Music Festival 2010: In a flash

Okay guys, I PROMISED to update you guys on what went down at the Siren Fest!
&  here are the highlights and photos (courtesy of Klatoba King:)

I absolutely loved all the bands. It was great to see a free concert filled with great talent from underground bands. We all know the Vans Warped tour was on the same day, but I picked right.
One of my first concerts and my first siren fest, It was a blast. I loved supporting smaller known bands because quite frankly, we are all talented. It's just that some people have to work a little bit harder to become well known. And what I always tell smaller bands, like how I told Dom, remember us little people-when you become so widely known, you're playing at Madison Square Garden and the Nokia theatre, where the tickets take me weeks to save up for- who supported you from the beginning.
Because your fans are who will always be there.
But anyway, where was I?
I loved the connections to the rhythms with complete strangers who came here and love what they're hearing. It's a feeling so amazing, I can only describe it so poorly. When a crowd of moving bodies move in sync to the vibrating sounds from the speakers, everyone just...connects. I loved the feeling of an enthusiastic crowd. Music makes everything a thousand times more exciting.
And I was glad to be a part of the unforgettable excitement.

Thanks to Dionys and Klatoba for attending with me!

* swam in the Atlantic with Matt (Kim can't swim) and got the most amazing hug from him.
Yeah. the most amazing night of my short, 15 year old teenage life.
