Regarding the Sunset Junction Music Festival, there is more line-up news: "Health, the Happy Hollows, Radars to the Sky, the Henry Clay People and Gram Rabbit are a handful of the locals said to be playing the festival," reported Kevin Bronson at Soundboard, LA Times' music blog. Sacramento eight-piece !!! will also be playing (more headliners and news on the festival can be found here).

On a Hollywood gossip note, critics are not so into Scarlett Johansson's new album (big surprise). But on the brighter and happier side of things, Mandy Moore is playing Hotel Cafe this Friday. As of this morning, tickets are still available.
