Even with big name acts like Conor Oberst and Built to Spill announced by the Sunset Junction Festival organizers this week, it doesn't mean the festival is happening. "We've asked the organizers to come back with a written proposal that addresses the concerns raised by local residents and businesses," said Julie Wong of Councilman President Eric Garcetti's office. "If they don't, it's unlikely they will be permitted." But imagine they do get permitted, here's more of the line-up: Nico Vega, Nortec Collective, War Tapes, Arrested Development, Rumspringa, Warpaint, Miss Derringer, Gran Ronde, Fool's Gold, Local Natives, Nico Stai and Love Grenades. Add to that this rumour: "I’m also hearing that ’60s proto-punks the Sonics are on board to play the festival," says Kevin Bronson on his blog Buzz Bands. (thanks to torrmoz for the tip)
