Big, big weekend ahead for those who love crowds and eye candy. The Sunset Strip Music Festival will have ‘em dancing and rocking in the streets (and already has– it started Thursday), while the Hester Street Fair will see design buffs flocking to Hollywood for outdoor shopping and gorging (food trucks!). Other amusements this weekend also feature music, food and art, mostly all three and more at the same time. A.D.D. be damned, multi-faceted fun awaits!

SSMF with X!!!! No rock band represents Los Angeles like X, and that’s not just because they wrote the definite ode to the city! The Doors have an equally strong tie to the city and both bands are longtime collaborators. Both bands will be represented at the festival, but tonight’s X show at the Roxy featuring Ray Manzarek tops the heap. See website for Saturday’s street fair line-up.
DING A LING offers its usual weirdness: a watermelon eating contest and a pony bounce (maybe) plus music by Glen Meadmore and his Rodeo Bunboys, plus members of Alternate Territory and The Radioactive Chicken (photo above), DJ Don Bolles and more.
