    Oh, it's that time of year again! One of our fave fests of the summer is back!

    Sunset Strip Music Festival (SSMF) organizers have announced the full lineup for the annual three-day event kicking off Thursday, Aug. 16 and culminating on Saturday, Aug. 18 with an all-day street festival. The Doors will be the 2012 festival honorees.

    Among those just announced to perform at the House of Blues Sunset Strip, The Roxy Theatre, Viper Room, Key Club and Whisky A Go-Go during SSMF 2012 are RZA, Hank III, Peter Murphy, Matt Skiba, Mickey Avalon, James Ingram and many more.

    These acts join the previously-announced August 18 street festival artists including headliner Marilyn Manson as well as The Offspring, Steve Aoki, Bad Religion, very special guest Black Label Society, Far East Movement, De La Soul, Dead Sara and The Mowgli's. Tickets are on sale now via TicketWeb. A portion of the proceeds will benefit IMPACT DRUG AND ALCOHOL TREATMENT CENTER, which has been treating individuals struggling with the powerful force of addiction since 1969.

    As in years past, Sunset Boulevard will be closed to traffic Saturday, Aug. 18 between Doheny Drive and San Vicente Boulevard and transformed into a premier concert destination with two outdoor stages, beer gardens, an artist autograph tent, an outdoor VIP rooftop lounge, Silent Frisco’s silent disco, VIP Lounge at On The Rox, food trucks and interactive experiences. The venues within the street festival closure--The Roxy Theatre, Whisky A Go-Go and Key Club--will also host full lineups from more than 50 bands throughout the day.
