Stillwell Stage photos by Dominick Mastrangelo

Siren Festival

"To close out the night, fans had the option of checking out Matt and Kim at the main stage or Holy Fuck at the alternate stage. The choice was clear, I went with the latter, and they easily turned out to be my favorite performance of the night. Their weird, intellectualized sound came to the forefront for the masses to witness firsthand and it's quite the process. With film reels rolling and making glorious sounds, lead singer Brian Borcherdt sporadically took the mic, shoved it between his teeth, and danced just as hard as any of the onlookers. It was clearly the most-lively show of the night. Holy Fuck as a satisfying headliner for the bill was a question on many people's minds, so the band had some expectations to live up to, but they totally thrived on those exact expectations and exceeded them tenfold. Even though the event was fully sponsored/curated, Holy Fuck performed in all aspects with the heart of any DIY performer." [Neon Musical Insight]

Our first set of Siren Festival pictures had a bit from both stages. Then came the main stage with some bonus shots of Matt & Kim in the ocean. We conclude with all the bands from the Stillwell Stage, with some more of Ted Leo from the main stage, and one more bonus shot of Matt & friends in the ocean, below...
