Last week, after a dramatic battle, the city denied permits for the Sunset Junction Street Fair, scheduled to go on this past weekend. Local businesses rushed to put on the replacement No Function Junction and to make room for displaced bands--the Butthole Surfers rescheduled for the Echoplex and Hanson and the Melvins canceled (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah appears to have gotten stuck in New York). Echo Park Patch has this video of the Saturday in Sunset Junction (with appropriately plaintive soundtrack, natch)--people ate brunch, bought vintage stuff, and did magic on the street. Seems like a pretty typical Silver Lake weekend, except of course for the Angelyne appearance.
