More coherent ramblings later, I’m sure, but for now a batch of pictures from a somewhat lazy day at the Capitol Hill Block Party, as the mercury rose so did the thickness of the crowd converging on Pike Street, especially for mainstagers Deerhunter (a few technical difficulties), Built to Spill (jamming into the sunset), and Jesus Lizard (rocking away after 13 years). Inside, Sleepy Eyes of Death killed it with noise and lights. And on the Vera Stage, Micachu and the Shapes made for enthusiastic afternoon listening, kids went justifiably wild for Starfucker (toppling fences and nearly tipping speakers), and Mika Miko closed the stage with a bang. The night ended with a massive dance party at Neumo’s hosted by Sing Sing.

Today looks even sunnier, warmer, and with an even more action-packed line-up. The doors are open and the music starts at two. The popsicles from the Washington Bus are definitely worth the pop quiz, too. See you there!
