Last year life Downtown was a good bit busy on October 7th, as both the Grand Avenue Festival and the LA Weekly's Detour Festival took place simultaneously. This year both events return, but on different weeks. Though you wouldn't know it by checking out the DCBID's site -- "Info Coming Summer 2007" -- the Grand Avenue Festival kicks things off on September 30th, running from 11am to 5pm.

The following Sunday, October 6th, the Detour Fest returns. The just released line-up includes: "Bloc Party, red hot dance act Justice, Satellite Party, Kinky, the Comedians of Comedy, Turbonegro, Teddybears, Moving Units, the Raveonettes, Shout Out Louds and Autolux." I can say that I've heard of Bloc Party and Kinky, but that's it. I'm pretty out of touch, though.
