Siren Festival is hot, crowded, and the sound always sucks. Plus the Voice is run by a bunch of douchebags. This year’s line-up sucks too. We recommend this FREE event at Summerstage instead.
Celebrate New Orleans
3pm at Central Park SummerStage (Rumsey Field at 72nd St)
The glory of New Orleans’ music is on display today, beginning with a brass band that cranks to 11 ‚Äî tubist Phil Frazier and headliner Kermit Ruffins co-founded the wily and playful ReBirth Brass Band, so when ReBirth turn the party out with their contemporary sousa-funk, don’t be surprised if Ruffins joins in. A favorite son of the Crescent City, he’s a trumpet-playing superman, a professional barbeque entertainer whose group swings like there’s no tomorrow. The underappreciated Donald Harrison is also on hand ‚Äî as comfortable in the fantastical garb of a Mardi Gras Indian as he is playing alto with Art Blakey ‚Äî as are the crowd-riling, high-stepping Lady Buckjumpers. Perfect for everyone who isn’t hearing the Siren song
And if you aren’t burned out on music and as drunk as we plan on being, check out Ruins at a Todd P event in Bed Sty.
