    Looks like a shut-down was averted; set times and stages announced:

    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/musi...led-.html#more
    First, the bad news: When soul artist Charles Bradley likely whips an unsuspecting Sunset Junction crowd into a communal dance frenzy, the sun and heat will be at their midday peak. The good news, however, is that Bradley won't interfere with some of the city's finest local acts, such as vintage rockers the Dum Dum Girls or pop duo the Belle Brigade, which will also take part in the second and final day of the Silver Lake weekend event, set to begin Aug. 27.

    Though the Sunset Junction festival is three weeks away yet, Pop & Hiss has an early look below at the stages and set times for this year's lineup. Tickets are on sale now for an advance price of $20 per day, and are available online, at Origami Vinyl in Echo Park or at 4121 Santa Monica Blvd. At the gate, tickets go up to $25 per day (for those who buy online, however, service fees essentially negate the early-bird price).

    There's plenty of music to be had over the two-day festivities, though, as six stages will offer a mix of local and national programming. Headliners this year include soul legend Bobby Womack, dancey indie-rockers Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and alt-rock weirdos the Butthole Surfers.

    Area venues the Satellite and Hotel Cafe will curate a hearty dose of the lineup, and El Cid will house a "locals-only" stage each day. Set times after the jump.

    Yeah, that was quite shocking to me as well. The last time I went was in 2008 or 2009 (can't really remember exactly), and there were only 2!

    The Melvins --> Butthole Surfers on Saturday is a good pairing, but the real winner for me is on Sunday: The Soft Pack-->The Growlers-->Dum Dum Girls-->Gayngs, and then the choice between Bobby Womack and a Peaches DJ set.

    400 Blow - Helmet - Melvins - Butthole Surfers is a great 4-band line up for $25. I'm a bit bummed that Art Brut directly conflicts though, i really like their new album. Good call on Sunday. If i end up going I imagine I'll be wherever you are.

    Sly & Robbie were really good there a couple years ago and the cops/security let everyone smoke. Prices seem to keep going up. Thought it was like ten bucks before.

    I have only been once before, I thnik it was 2002, maybe it was the first or second one. It only cost $5/day and I saw Bluebird, Mondo Generator, Mudhoney, Sonic Youth, Pansy Dvision, and Sleater-Kinney. That shit ruled. You could buy beer from stands and walk around with it too - do they still allow that?

    Went to see the NY Dolls reunion show (remember them dedicating 'Lonely Planet Boy' to Johnny Thunders. I most likely cried as they played it.) in 2005 and, yep, the cost was $10:

    it's not cancelled.... yet.

    they didn't get their permit. But also said they'd fix it w/in 24 hours.

    edit: it's looking pretty grim.

    Story here, and yes, they owe a lot of money. Maybe the city is thinking a stage is going to collapse from all the wind.

    They're probably have to get the money from the mob and then the collapse will be an "accident". J/k.

    it's not just the money... The fest on a whole is causing issues w/ local residents and business owners. It's basically become too big for it's own good.

    Sunset Junction permits denied for 2011
    August 22, 2011 | 2:09 pm 19111

    By a 3-1 vote, the Los Angeles Board of Public Works has denied the Sunset Junction Neighborhood Alliance operating permits for its 2011 street fair, putting the three-decade-old event in serious jeopardy just days before its scheduled start Saturday.

    Citing nearly $400,000 in unpaid fees for both the 2010 and 2011 festivals, some of which the festival's organizers disputed, this afternoon the board approved a motion to deny the permits. The board did leave open the possibility that if festival founder Michael McKinley could raise the estimated $141,978.57 in fees owed for the 2011 fair, the board could reconvene Wednesday to reassess the permits.

    The ruling ended a morning of impassioned testimony by local residents, artists and musicians, at-risk youth helped by the Sunset Junction Neighborhood Alliance's outreach programs and business owners claiming a negative impact from the ever growing festival. Much of the public comment centered on the festival's role in establishing Silver Lake as a place for artists and diverse cultural life as well as its charitable work, but also its growing pains as it more recently began fencing off the fair and charging admission, riling many longtime local residents.

    Much of the board's comments recapped the fees the festival owed for policing, street closures and other services, including $256,484.14 from last year's fair.

    "You're asking us for good faith here, and last year we gave it to you," said board member Andrea Alarcon. "You didn't pay. It's quite disrespectful that you paid legal counsel, entertainment and found sponsors, but you haven't paid the city.... You've been doing this for 30 years. You knew the process."

    McKinley and his counsel questioned those figures, alleging much smaller bills for street music festivals in Venice and Eagle Rock and a vague system of applying for fee subsidies for noncommercial events. But he did not dispute that all assessed bills for 2010 and 2011 had yet to be paid.

    The board seemed sympathetic to the nonprofit Neighborhood Alliance's mission, and for the festival's impact in Silver Lake. "I say if they can come up with the $140,000 by Wednesday, we should give them a chance," said board member Valerie Lynne Shaw. The board did leave open the possibility that if the alliance could come up with the full advance fees owed for 2011, it would reconsider granting permits.

    Left with the prospect of finding that money -- McKinley claimed to have $50,000 in liquid funds at the moment -- the organizers left City Hall scrambling for new options. "All we need is a loan for a week," said Junction booker Jennifer Tefft. "We'll have every penny of this after the festival."
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    there was another artical saying Silver Lake didn't start charging until 2008 and that was about $60,000 that was waived. One of the reasons for their dispute is the massive increase in the fees. That sucks that this may kill the festival.

    I paid every year I went starting in 1997 but back then it was $5. It went up to $10 in 2002 but it was Sonic Youth and Mudhoney and well worth it. However it wasn't long until it was $20 and now $22, and no longer a community based event but basically trying to cash in on the raging festival culture with high priced touring bands. I had more fun the past few years at some of the competing events on the periphery than I ever had at Sunset Junction.

    (However I was gonna go this year after a layoff of 5 years for Melvins/Butthole Surfers/Helmet).

    Yeah, I'm so much more disappointed that it's this year's lineup getting shafted. The past few haven't been overly interesting, but they had a really strong stage on Saturday.

    Sunset Junction says it can pay 2011 fees; festival's fate unclear [Updated]

    Organizers of the Sunset Junction festival say they have secured firm commitments for the more than $141,000 they need to pay the city before officials will consider issuing permits for the event this weekend.

    "Sunset Junction organizers have acquired the 141k to pay the fees that the city is requesting for the 2011 festival,” festival booker Jennifer Tefft announced today in a Facebook post. “There's a public hearing tomorrow morning at 9:30am to decide the fate of the Junction. Its not canceled yet! Don't make other plans for the weekend!! Will keep you all posted."

    It remains unclear if they will have the funds in hand when the Los Angeles Board of Public works meets again Wednesday.

    [Updated, 5:10 p.m.: "There were some gifts from supporters, but the large amount was from an anonymous donor, " Tefft said when reached by phone. "About two-thirds of it was from an organization that loves and supports the festival."]

    On Monday, the board denied the festival's operating permits, citing more than $400,000 in unpaid fees for the 2011 and 2010 festivals. But they said they might agree to reconsider their decision at Wednesday’s meeting if the festival paid them what is owed for this year.

    Board president Andrea Alarcon said she hadn't heard from festival organizers about how their fundraising efforts were progressing.

    "It's all over the Internet that they found the money, but at some point they need to touch base with me," Alarcon said.
