Capitol Hill Block Party
For three days every summer, the already bustling music and nightlife hub of 10th & Pike on Capitol Hill transforms into a giant outdoor festival, sensibly named the Capitol Hill Block Party. Here, you get all the action of an awesome summer music festival with all the amenities of the city right outside (as well as inside) the gates. The Block Party showcases both international acts and local performers, veterans as well as up and comers, with previous years featuring bands ranging from Vampire Weekend to the Jesus Lizard, Shabazz Palaces to Sleater-Kinney.
The Capitol Hill Block Party is raging from July 22nd to July 24th at Neumos, every day from 1pm to 2am. Check out Flavorpill for more information on this event and all the other cultural happenings in your city.
