Here's the Full List of How Much Each Sunset Junction Band Was Supposed to Be Paid

In August Sunset Junction was denied a permit by the Board of Public Works, due to unpaid fees. This left everyone scrambling to get money they were owed, including ticket buyers, vendors, and bands themselves.

Sunset Junction Neighborhood Alliance proceeded to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection, and listed its total liabilities as north of $900,000. Court records reveal how much each act scheduled to perform was supposed to be paid. And so here it is, every single band and DJ, listed from biggest missed payday to smallest. Surprises abound: $22,000 for freaking Clap Your Hands Say Yeah? $20,000 for Hanson? Only $500 for swimsuit edition hero Nick Waterhouse? The full list is below.
