The Silver Lake Jubilee has come and gone, but Silver Lake's other major music festival is coming in August. The people behind the Sunset Junction Street Fair (now in its 30th year!) have been rolling out their line-up piece by piece and most recently added some bigger name acts, including Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. Other notables include Fitz and the Tantrums (LAist predicts them as the next up and coming band), Meshell Ndegeocello, Shiny Toy Guns and Saint Motel. The event is on August 21st and 22nd.
