Ear Notes: Back in the NYC, Baby 

Man, it's been a long ass time since our last Ear Notes installment. A year and a half at least, right? Anyway, the new fatasianbaby.com is still a work in progress and we're not sure exactly what we're gonna be posting* and when, but here's some stuff to tide you over till at least Monday. And man is there ever stuff.

First order of business: The Siren Festival! Hot Dogs, The Cyclone, rock stars, hipsters, blipsters, yupsters, hot dogs, and sand castles. What more do you want. Well, actually, I could go for some more public toilets, but we hope that will come with the much-hyped Coney Island redevelopment. Anyway, FAB recommends checking out Atlanta natives The Black Lips along with Dr. Dog, Matt & Kim, The Detroit Cobras, and of course, New York Dolls. Shit starts going down at Saturday at noon. For full lineup and information, go to the Siren Music Festival web page.

Tonight we have a bunch of shows that will probably be some shade of awesome.
Neko Case is doing a free show at Summerstage with Eric Bachmann.

Marissa Nadler is part of an extensive lineup at the Church of Messiah in Greenpoint as part of Heeb Magazine's Diamond Days Festival.

The aforementioned Black Lips and Turbo Fruits, one of many great rock bands coming out of Nashville (yeah, you heard me. Great rock bands in Nashville) these days, will be playing at Silent Barn.

Hometown indie heroes Bishop Allen will be doing a free show at South Street Seaport with Canadians Rock Plaza Central.

And Gogol Bordello will be at Irving Plaza, which FAB has recently learned is now called The Fillmore New York at Irving Plaza. Bleh.

Saturday night, if you're still kicking after hitting Coney Island, head over to the Bowery Ballroom The Ponys, Jay Reatard, and Turbo Fruits.

Later in the evening, The Juan Maclean will be doing a DJ set over at Studio B in Brooklyn.

Sunday Sunday Sunday!
Brazilian Girls will be playing a free show in the afternoon at Summerstage.

Band of Horses (Hi Joan!), Annuals, and Oxford Collapse will be at the hipster hoedown at McCarren Pool. FAB thinks this is one of the strongest Pool Party lineups all summer so definitely throw on your dodgeball outfit and head on over. If you're not familiar with Raleigh, North Carolina's Annuals yet, you can read all about 'em here.
*It remains to be seen how much coverage we'll be able to give the awesome Atlanta scene, only for lack of time and energy.
