weekend outlook: blocking

Compare & Contrast: Block Party vs. Bloc Party

A public service announcement regarding homophone clarity: those who hear about Block Party on Capitol Hill this weekend should know that it isn’t one of this Spring’s hot British buzz bands taking over the middle section of the Pike/Pine corridor starting at 11:30 on Saturday. Instead, it’s the neighborhood’s biggest annual event that doesn’t revolve around proud marching gays with aspirations of re-settling in Seattle Center.

That’s right — it’s the annual Capitol Hill Block Party! Presented by the Stranger, the party is so packed with great bands from the Pacific Northwest that highlighting a few favorites like Built to Spill, the Thermals, Aqueduct, and Band of Horses just seems crazy because the lineup is so good that the list of hyperlinks would go on forever. Beyond the band there are other diversions like dildo ring tosses and the chance to buy DIY crafts from all of your friends at I ♥ Rummage.

With all of the fun going on, how can you even think of missing it? If local festivals would only be as kind to webloggers as last summer’s big political conventions, they might even get someone to “live ‘blog” from the party.
