On July 18, the ninth annual Siren Festival will once again transform the People’s Playground into the Rocker’s Rec Room.
Indie rock legends Built to Spill — an Idaho-based band acclaimed for its 1990s records “Perfect From Now On,” and “Keep It Like A Secret” — will headline the Village Voice-sponsored rock concert, which will take over West 10th Street next to the Cyclone.
Setting the stage will be the electro-infused Philadelphia rap group Spank Rock, whose progressive — and lewd — tunes have become critical favorites and nightclub bangers.
The show will also include sets by the Danish duo the Raveonettes, who have churned out low-fi gems since their 2003s debut, “Chain Gang of Love,” which features 13 catchy tracks all recorded in B-flat major.
Organizers predict that about 100,000 music lovers will make it to the all-day show, which will include Japandroids, Thee Oh Sees, and A Place to Bury Strangers.
Siren Festival (Surf Avenue at West 10th Street in Coney Island), July 18; noon to 9 pm. Free. For information, visit www.villagevoice.com/siren.
