A nice little email from someone needing some info reminded me that it's getting closer to Sunset Junction time. What is Sunset Junction? A wonderful street fair held in Los Angeles every year, with tons of food and scores of great bands. It also just so happens to a block away from my house - you can see the ferris wheel from my living room windows.
It's a great time to visit LA. Hot as hell, but worth it for the music. Some of the bands playing this year include On the Speakers (rising from the ashes of the late, great Creeper Lagoon), The Like, The Donnas, The Vacation, Camper Van Beethoven, X, Autolux (rising from the ashes of the late, great Failure), Ben Kweller, and IMA Robot. And they still ain't done with that lineup.
It's happening August 21st and 22nd. Margaritas at my house!
