Capitol Hill Block Party this weekend!

The 2008 Capitol Hill Block Party, an annual music festival that draws upon and showcases the best indie and underground rock in the US, takes over Seattle’s South Capitol Hill neighborhood July 25-26 with it’s best lineup yet. Launched 11 years ago, the Block Party has evolved into one of Seattle’s most anticipated outdoor music festivals. With over 50 bands on 4 stages, great food, and plenty of cheap beer, this is one of the best parties of the summer.

John Richards -KEXP Morning Show Host exclaims, “The Block Party has become the place that people go to discover any band worth discovering in Seattle. With an added push towards better up and coming and some established alternative and independent bands in the mix, its truly a great experience for anyone who attends. Its also has become the one event that really brings the Seattle music industry together, albeit in the VIP section and somewhat intoxicated.”

Partial proceeds from The Block Party benefit two excellent non-profits: Home Alive, which encourages violence prevention, and The Vera Project, a youth run all ages venue and recording studio in Seattle.

The Block Party continues to be one of the least expensive festivals in the country, with tickets only $18 in advance and a 2 day pass for only $34.
