Recapping -- Two weeks ago, the 28th annual Sunset Junction Street Festival (MySpace) took place in Silver Lake. And while much of the fallout has focused on the admission fee and affected businesses, Saturday's lineup at the Bates Stage featured several buzzworthy artists from the indie music scene, starting with three locals covered previously here -- Radars to the Sky (MySpace), The Happy Hollows (MySpace), and Castledoor (MySpace) -- followed by Bodies of Water (MySpace), Jonathan Rice (MySpace), The Entrance Band (MySpace), Langhorne Slim (MySpace), and Menomena (MySpace), and ending with Broken Social Scene (MySpace) and Cold War Kids (MySpace).

With Rice performing in the afternoon, his girlfriend Jenny Lewis (MySpace) managed to catch his set from within the crowd in near anonymity.

As for upcoming shows, Bodies of Water's is tomorrow at The Echo (MySpace) -- and Duke at You Set The Scene is giving away tickets. As for Rice, he will presumably be with Lewis, who is performing on Thursday at Spaceland (MySpace) in Silver Lake and Friday at The Echo, in promotion of her sophomore album Acid Tongue, which streets on the 23rd.

Special thanks to Bodies of Water, Johnathan Rice, and Spaceland Productions.
