The very recent addition of M.I.A. (along with Cursive and White Rabbits) to the Siren Festival makes the annual concert's 2007 lineup slightly more appealing. I just want to know how she's going to convey (in person) this new 'blast your eyes with wicked craziness and colors' look that's currently populating her new site, cover art for upcoming album Kala, and video for "Boyz".
Just saying... I hope she's headlining the show, playing at night, and that the audience needs to wear sunglasses because the stage is so damn bright and vibrant in an NES menu screen meets early DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince kind of way.
