It's getting hot. Must be time to talk about: Sunset Junction 2008. On this year's bill: Broken Social Scene, the Black Keys, Cold War Kids and Kinky. Yessir, I'm bringing lots of sunblock this year.

Since 1992, garage impresario Zombie Joe has bombarded the San Fernando Valley with outre fare. "Tell-Tale Heart" raises the mind-bending bar.
