Only three more days until the Capitol Hill Block Party!
To prep, I've been perusing the Sparkly Indie Pop Flickr Photo Pool to see what I have in store. Here's a photo of the Past Lives who will be taking the Vera Stage at 8p on Friday (July 24). If you haven't seen them already, this photo should convince you to head to the Vera Stage in time to catch their set.
And for those putting together their "what to see at CHBP" spreadsheet, check out Chelsea's Capitol Hill Block Party preview.

The countdown to the Capitol Hill Block Party has begun! In less than a week tons and tons of the coolest bands will be taking one of three stages in the lovely (and likely warm) Pike Pine cooridor.
To prep, I've been perusing Flickr to see what I have in store. Here's a photo from the Sparkly Indie Pop Flickr Photo Pool of the Dutchess and the Duke who will be taking the Main Stage at 4.30p on Friday (July 24).

Considering the window of weather for outdoor antics is pitifully small in Seattle, it seems we have learned to really pack the few months of sunshine with good times, great oldies and a bunch of great new bands as well. 12 years ago Capitol Hill Block Party began and next week you can take part in its revelry. With a particularly punk-rock lineup, what a good time it will be! With three stages and over 50 bands between July 24th and 25th, not to mention satellite parties to attend, you ‘d really have to strive to not have fun at Block Party. This year the headliners on the main stage are The Jesus Lizard on the main stage Friday night and Sonic Youth on Saturday.
Tickets are still available (but I can't imagine it wont sell out soon - so go get yours soon). And if you're headed there, note that the main entrance has moved to 12th and Pike which should make for a better traffic flow.
