"Punk rock singer-songwriter Ted Leo and his band spurred fans into fits of unison clapping and extravagant crowd surfing (one guy held up a beach umbrella while being passed around like a prison bitch), while performing "The Sons of Cain," "Even Heroes Have Die," and "Where Was My Brain?". During one song, Screaming Females lead singer/guitarist Marissa Paternoster (who performed at Siren earlier in the day) joined the Pharmacists as a guest vocalist. The short-lived duet was a treat considering the fact that I missed the Screaming Females set." [Yeah Develop]
Matt (and friends) cooled off in the ocean

As you can hear in one of the videos I posted yesterday, Matt invited the crowd to join him for a swim in the ocean after his and Kim's headlining set at the Siren Festival in Coney Island on Saturday. As you can see above (and below) it really did happen.

In related news, Matt & Kim have just announced two headlining shows at Webster Hall (October 26 & 27). Tickets are on sale now.

More pictures of the swim, along with all the bands who played on the main stage, below...

yeah, being enthusiastic about your music and giving a shit about your fans definitely makes someone a douche.

I am not a super fan of Matt & Kim's music. That said, after seeing them at the Pool Parties 2 summers back, it's hard to deny that they are a really fun band to see live. They put on a great show, have a great time, and uyou can tell they genuinely love being on stage. Their enthusiasm is infectious. If you don't have a good time at a Matt & Kim show, you are probably one miserable sonofabitch.

is it required that you wear those knock off cheap ray bans in order to be a hipster. I wish a blue whale came by and have eaten them all. GAY!

Better luck next time, ocean.

Blech, it's the same shit every time with Matt & Kim.

1. Act like you can't believe you're on stage in front of all these people "OMG YOU GUYS!"
2. grin a lot

repeat.

Blech, it's the same shit every time with BV comment section.

1. Pass judgment on others you consider to be beneath you.
2. Grin a lot, you're so cool

repeat.

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2010 12:31 PM

where the harlem pics?

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2010 12:42 PM

it is fascinating how much Matt & Kim smile. I wasn't into the music (excpet the hooks they covered) but they do have a lot of energy and are enthusiastic......still, it's weird to smile constantly.

The sharks were all watching Holy Fuck.

quick question... does anyone honestly think that the "meh" and "hummus" jokes are funny?

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2010 1:38 PM

WE WENT TO PRATT AND ARE SO WACKY YOU GUYS!

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2010 1:57 PM

^ Never liked the "hummus" thing. But a good "meh" is welcome.

Why are there so many hateful douche-bags on here? Jeez... it's depressing to come across this site. You people really suck and must live some depressing lives.

Ok, so if Swans and GBV are touring this Fall, why the f--k are we wasting our collective time with these nonsense bands??!

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2010 2:33 PM

That pic on top of the bass drum is pretty cool.

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2010 2:38 PM

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2010 2:56 PM

the sound mix on main stage was awfull... way too much bass drowning all the guitars... the second stage sound was fine...

I agree there should be a SWANS-only version of BV.

@2:05

It's easier to stomach if you think of everyone on here as trolls. At this point everyone is a satire of a "BV commenter". It's almost funny to read the comments if you can make yourself think like that. Otherwise, it's totally despressing.

BV: One of the premier troll sites on the internet.
