Sure, 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!
