Sunset Junction Lineup Partially Announced

Beachwood Sparks - The Classic Sub Pop Lineup (Rademaker, Scher, Gunst, Sperske)

Kevin Bronson of the LA Times is reporting that the reunited Beachwood Sparks will be appearing at this year's Sunset Junction. The Beachwood Sparks previously announced a show at Sub Pop's 20th Anniversary in Seattle in July. I probably saw the Beachwood Sparks around 10 times back in the day (1997-1999) - from their early days a six piece with Josh Schwartz to their later days post-Sperske. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like Farmer Dave will be a part of the reunion.

The lineup is shaping up well with Broken Social Scene, The Black Keys, Cold War Kids, Isaac Hayes, Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra and Kinky already announced.

The festival takes place August 23 and 24th in the Sunset Junction area of Silver Lake.
