Black Keys, Broken Social Scene draw huge crowds to LA's Sunset Junction
Rousing sets by The Black Keys, !!! and Broken Social Scene were the main attractions at Sunset Junction Street Fair, held in the Silver Lake neighbourhood of Los Angeles this weekend (August 23 and 24).

The street festival, now in its 28th year, brought huge crowds to the sweltering streets of Silver Lake, which were filled with carnival rides and shopping booths in addition to music.

Broken Social Scene garnered a huge response from the Saturday night crowd, despite their battles with sound troubles. “Our first gig ever was at the Silverlake Lounge, so this means a lot,” frontman Kevin Drew told the audience, who roared back in response.

!!! delivered arguably the most energetic set of the festival, with frontman Nic Offer continuously hopping and spinning around and thrusting his hips throughout the set.

During 'Must Be The Moon', Offer climbed the scaffolding on the side of the stage and offered up some pole-dancing moves to the delight of the crowd. When performing a new song, Offer asked, "Are you paying attention?" and later said, "Thanks for letting us try it out."

The Black Keys closed out the festival with a mellow yet competent set, which included a cover of Captain Beefheart's 'I'm Glad'.

"It's kinda cool out here, this is a nice block party," said singer Dan Auerbach, bringing another Sunset Junction to a close.

The Black Keys played:

'Girl Is On My Mind'
'Set You Free'
'10 A.M. Automatic'
'Same Old Thing'
'Stack Shot Billy'
'Everywhere I Go'
'Strange Times'
'Your Touch'
'The Breaks'
'I'm Glad'
'Till I Get My Way'
'No Trust'
'I Got Mine'
