Like a pre-teen who just got a hold of his first Playboy, looking at the list of bands playing the Silver Lake Jubilee makes us hyperventilate. The festival, located on Myra Avenue between Fountain and Santa Monica and cutting across Sunset, goes down this weekend from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. For a measly five bucks (that is donated to the Los Angeles Arts and Athletics Alliance (LAAAA), a community non-profit) you can see over twenty bands a day. That's a 25 cents per band. Even in a recession, you can handle those prices. The question is of course, what should you see? With such a plethora of names and genres, how do you know where to go? Fear not! We have put together a list of a dozen bands per day that you simply must see. As usual we've included a list of tunes so you can judge for yourself and more importantly set times of when they go on!
