Sunset Junction Festival is Dead, Long Live Echo Park Rising

With little warning Echo Park Rising is in some way trying to replace Sunset Junction, the greatest feat might be it's free and open to everyone. I guess the bands that were booked will play anyway , they have nothing better to do. Check their site for constant updates, but sales, music and fun this weekend near Dodger Stadium. Check out Time Travel Mart and iambit galllery store.
