The Drums at Hotel Vegan day party March 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)
The Drums at Hotel Vegan

The Village Voice has announced the initial line-up of its 4Knots Festival which happens July 14 at South St. Seaport. Headliners for the free show are The Drums, with Crocodiles (which we already knew), Hospitality, Bleached and Nick Waterhouse being the others. Unlike last year, there will be a second stage as well on neighboring Pier 16 (Pier 17 is where the Seaport Music Festival Happens). Stay tuned for the rest of the line-up.

If you're curious about Nick Waterhouse, the retrofied R&B bandleader plays a late show at Mercury Lounge this Saturday (5/19) and you can download a live album too.

This is actually a pretty good lineup. Drums: Cool, Hospitality: Cool, Bleached: Cool. Crocodiles suck, though.

Looking forward to buying a 4 dollar slice at Pizza Uno and chilling to...The Drums? Or Crocodiles?

No, nevermind. I can't even fake excitement for this.

Now now guys stop fighting. We can all agree that Crocodiles are terrible.

To go from this:

to the current lineup in 3 years is proof positive the recession is still in full swing.

yeah 11:21 if only there was a great band like spank rock it would be great.

This lineup wouldn't be so bad if it were not for the fact that early Siren lineups were incredible. Terrible lineup compared to Siren, but decent for a free show.
