The third Silver Lake Jubilee is gearing up for its Memorial Day weekend shows, with a focus on ticket sales and outreach.

Festival leadership will host a community Town Hall at the at Silverlake Independent Jewish Community Center at  1110 Bates Ave. Wednesday night.

Hoping to maintain good will in a neighborhood that still remembers the Sunset Junction Street Fair, they'll map out the festival's new layout.

It includes free "Block Party" area with a community stage and other entertainment as well as community groups.

The organizers will also explain the paid-entry area discounts of up to $6 available to residents in the 90026, 90027, 90029 and 90039 zip codes and to Metro commuters.

Producer Jack Martinez says he expects about 15,000 people to attend the Jubilee this year, which features largely local musicians, writers and craftspeople.

Earlier Wednesday, Echo Park Patch caught up with Martinez at the corner of Silver Lake Boulevard and Parkman Avenue.

He was hanging with local artist Dcypher, who was again painting the wall there for the Festival, as he did last year.

Dcypher spent Tuesday up the street, doing the same for the wall outside the El Cid Restaurant.

As mentioned above, there will also be community stage in the free Block Party area, with youth writers and rockers a highlight.
