A sad weekend for Eastside hipsters and music lovers just got a little sadder. The band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have announced that their Sunday show at the Echoplex isn't happening, and it's all that damn Hurricane Irene's fault. Here's the official note from the band:
People of Los Angeles, Due to the fact that all of our flights have been canceled, there is no possible way for us to make it to LA to play our show at the Echoplex. We were really looking forward to coming out west and seeing all your lovely faces! Between Sunset Junction and Irene it's been a rough couple of days. We'll make it back to LA soon, we promise.

Several bands and venues scrambled together some last-minute gig arrangements this week after Sunset Junction organizers failed to secure a permit for the annual street fair and concert, and thus Echo Park Rising was born. Take that, Silver Lake! Your neighbor-hood to the east is making things happen.
