the monthly BEAT: Silver Lake. Sunset Junction Street Fair cancelled.

Earlier this month, we told you about the annual Sunset Junction Street Fair that should have been this weekend in Silver Lake, but has now been cancelled.

Apparently the festival organizers owed the city a bunch of money from last year and had not come up with enough for this year.

It's a shame to see a tradition (since 1980) die. Check out Randy Lewis and Margaret Wappler's Los Angeles Times article about the community's mixed emotions about the news.

Have a look at past lineups here.

Alternate suggestions for weekend fun: see Our Idiot Brother at the ArcLight (who doesn't love Paul Rudd?), check out Seventy 7 Lounge (check Twitter for entry password), read a good book, if you still haven't seen Midnight in Paris, see that instead of Our Idiot Brother.
