After playing the Village Voice's Siren Music Festival with his band, Jazz Beard Jr., R. James Bagget says he was shocked at Amy Phillips' "sarcastic tone and lack of genuine enthusiasm" in her preview of the event that was published in the Voice. "(I)t is profoundly ironic that one of the Voice's main competitors (Time Out) ran a much larger and more laudatory preview," he writes in his letter-to-the-editor.
