Sunset Junction Street Fair

The artist line-up for this year's Sunset Junction is shaping up quite nicely, with Eels, Redd Kross, The Elected, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club conveniently scheduled on the same day. The 26th Annual Sunset Junction Street Fair, which takes place on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, August 26th and 27th. The hours are 10-11 both days. In addition to an abundance of things to buy, do, and eat, Sunset Junction offers a wealth of live music. Eels and the other aforementioned groups are playing on Saturday, as are Isaac Hayes and Great Northern. It turns out, Great Northern are a favorite band of a friend with especially great taste in music, so I'm eager to check them out. Sunday's line-up includes The Cramps and Hank Williams III.

Ticket prices are up this year, but they're still a bargain. $12 in advance (plus a minimum $3.24 service fee), and $15 after 4:00. Tickets are available now through Ticketweb.
