Sunset Junction continued to chug along on the streets of Silver Lake, California with all the hustle and bustle. However, the hustle and bustle was not anywhere near as busy as it was during the past few years. A lot of factors could have caused the decline in attendees this year. Perhaps the steep price for a single day entrance had gotten far too expensive for those who used to attend a no-fee Sunset Junction back in the day. Perhaps the headliners weren’t as big of names as people hoped they would be. Perhaps a lot of people attended different and smaller festivals that also had both music, food, beer and bands for no fee at all this weekend. There could have been plenty of other reasons people didn’t attend Sunset Junction this year. Nonetheless, we were there to catch some of our favorite local bands.

Though their peace and patchouli vibe can sometimes wear a bit thin to those non-hippies amongst us—and the question of authenticity arises when the singer of an indie dance-rock, Ima Robot, grows a beard and leads a band-styled love-in—Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ early evening set on the Outdoor Stage at Coachella on Saturday was, I gotta admit, pretty fun, despite the fact that the band’s audience was comprised primarily of adenoidal bro-sters, the unholy union of sun-baked and beer-sloshed frat boys with the skinny-jean’d aesthetic of the common hipster. Further, frontman Alex Ebert persevered despite a host of sound problems, turning in a bouncy, ebullient set.
