They’ll be singing "Me and Giuliani Down by the School Yard (A True Story)" at the Siren Music Fest in Coney Island on Saturday, July 19.

Based in Brooklyn by way of Sacramento, Calif., !!! (pronounced Chk, Chk, Chk or any three repetitive sounds, according to the band’s Web site), the band responsible for that anthem, is just one of the seven that will perform on the festival’s main stage from 1 pm to 9 pm, while more perform on the Stillwell Avenue stage at Astroland Amusement Park.

Bring sunscreen, water and a cap to take in this marathon of talent: The Pattern at 1 pm, The Kills at 2 pm, !!! at 3 pm, Sahara Hotnights at 4 pm, Hot Hot Heat at 5 pm, The Datsuns at 6 pm and Modest Mouse at 7:30 pm on the Main Stage.
