Mixtape: Shoreline Sirens [Side A]

Film School @ Siren Music Festival (Photo by Josh Kuckens)On July 19, 2008 an incredible selection of musical talent assembled under the shadow of the famed eighty-one year old Cyclone rollercoaster at the storied community of Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York.

This mixtape is a salute to the Siren Music Festival put on by the Village Voice, a free all day/all ages music celebration that got its start in 2001 as a way to help revitalize this historic community and celebrate the Voice’s coverage of local & national music.

We’ve graciously had one of the photographers at the event, Josh Kuckens, offer up a few images to be posted here, this specific image being “Film School”, an artist from both San Francisco & Los Angeles.

Make sure to check out the rest of his photos, including a full sized version of this one, here. Also you can check out side B of this mixtape over in our festival comp. section.
