Not Even The Presence Of Soul Asylum Can Prevent Us From Asking “Another Festival? Really?”

May 20th, 2008 // 9 Comments

sunsetstrippostcard.JPGSure, Coachella attendance was soft, the Vegoose festival went under, and San Diego’s Street Scene festival is scaling down, but the city of West Hollywood believes that this is the perfect moment to announce a new festival. Not only will does the initial lineup of the Sunset Strip Music Festival include Soul Asylum, Everclear, and something called “L.A. Guns featuring Jani Lane of Warrant,” it’ll feature a kickoff event hosted by Mark McGrath and a roundtable hosted by Larry King. What more could you ask for? Mark your calendars now!

    Damn, I saw the headline and thought I might go out of convenience. Then, however, I realized that Larry King was the closest this festival comes to featuring something I actually care about.

    so wait is this a new l.a. guns lineup? i’m so confused

    Wow…this should be named Shit Fest.

    I’m not getting this either. When you click the link, the line-up is listed as TBD.

    @Whigged: The lineup was in a press release sent out yesterday.

  6. Whigged

    found it – thx. Ok, so wtf is Jani Lane doing in L.A. Guns since he JUST got back with Warrant a few weeks ago?

  7. Maura Johnston

    @Whigged: and which l.a. guns is he in!?!? so many questions!

    They could get a better lineup by going into the Rainbow and the Cat Club on any given night and dragging out Lemmy, other various GNR alums,some ex- Cult and AIC members, and most of Camp Freddy.

    Note to remaining members of Warrant: it may be time to go back and get that diploma.

    Seriously? Sometimes this city makes me sad.
