Capitol Hill Block Party
July 23-25, 2010 
Pike Street & 12th Ave
Seattle, Wa

dead-weather-jack-whiteOver the years, the Capitol Hill Block Party has evolved from a grassroots weekend showcase of local talent to a three-day party boasting national acts and high-profile corporate sponsorships like Miller, Dickies and AT&T.  

Popular opinion on this evolution is divided into two distinct camps: 1) those who bemoan the corporatization of a community event and long for the days when you could get 10 dollar tickets at the gate to see your friends’ bands play and 2) those who think it’s gonna be damn cool to take the bus to Capitol Hill and see Jack White and the Dead Weather play in the middle of Pike street. 

No matter which camp you fall in, the following point is inarguable: there’s a ton of kick-ass music happening smack dab in the middle of our city this weekend, outside. And it’s supposed to be gorgeous. 

In fact, there’s more than 60 bands playing on three stages over the three days. Among them are Pitchfork buzz bands like Holy Fuck and Beach Fossils, national acts doing the festival circuit like Atmosphere, Blond Redhead and MGMT, and great local bands like Eastern Grip, Unnatural Helpers and Champagne Champagne.

Our crew will be "live Tweeting" the event from www.twitter.com/nadamucho and we’ll share our thoughts here throughout the weekend.
