Sunset Junction 2008
It's hard to believe that it cost 20 bucks to get into Sunset Junction these days. Was it worth it? Yes and No. The festival food in itself is worth it to me, gyros, polish sausage sandwiches, any meat you can think of on a stick! Also, Broken Social Scene were playing and that is worth it, but the technical difficulties made it unbearable. It wasn't the band's fault but rather the stage hands. Microphones kept going out while the band was in the middle of a song. All in all I felt ripped off. So... not worth it. Sunset Junction continues Sunday with !!!, The Germs, Black Keys, Kinky, Jeffrey Osborne, and Stephanie Mills playing. Also, don't drive! Take the Metro 2 or 4 bus from downtown which drops you off just steps from the entry gates. Get off at Sunset and Maltman. You can also take Metro Red Line to Vermont/Sunset, or Vermont/Santa Monica stations and walk it.
What's up with Sunset Junction and lube?
