They better clear some jail cells for a bunch of drunk hipsters tonight. On the heels of 80 DUI incidents and 792 hit and runs in LAPD's Northeast Division this year, officers will hold a sobriety checkpoint at Sunset Boulevard and Echo Park Avenue tonight from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. Expect some traffic in the area, especially in light of Thom Yorke's show around the corner at the Echoplex.

Other Traffic this weekend includes the Hollywood Bowl area tomorrow night for Gustavo Dudamel's first public concert as conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. On Sunday morning, the L.A. Triathlon will shut down streets between Venice and downtown.
