FROM THE NEWS NEST: Countdown to Sunset Junction With KNOW YOUR BAND!

August 08. 2011 | By Trina N. Green

Oh my, but summertime is the most musically awesome time of the year in Los Angeles-town.

Sunset Junction, the annual eastside music fest in the streets of Silverlake, is just three weeks away (August 27th & 28th) and promises to be another eclectic and exciting two days of music, and I’m not just saying that because I’m a Silverlake resident. If you’re not familiar with the bag of cool about to happen, you can get the deets and line ups right here. The Belle Brigade, Bobby Womack, Dum Dum Girls, Cary Brothers… and, yes, that’s THE Hanson on the schedule and yes, I looove them!

This year Sunset Junction will boast six stages on both days of the fest. To make things a little more interesting leading up to the event, they want you to get your game on!

It’s called KNOW YOUR BAND: Go to Each day they’ll post a new trivia question related to a band playing at Junction. First person to answer the daily question correctly wins. Wins what, you say? Tickets to Sunset Junction, music, t-shirts, random other surprises and swag from the rad bands playing this year. Booya, baby.
