As the sun set on KEXP's 2016 Hood to Hood broadcast from the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, the party headed a few miles away to the Skylark Cafe where DJ Troy Nelson was hosting an evening of local music. It's a good thing the show was All Ages, because we had the winners of this year's youth-oriented EMP’s Sound Off! competition in the house -- Renton crew Dre’zy & Too Smoove. The cutest sleuths of Seattle, Detective Agency, had the case wrapped up for fun, garage-y indiepop, and local sextet Fine Prince closed the night with their dance-y electropop. Check out our photo roundup below, and pretend you were there, celebrating West Seattle's victory!

And if you want to make sure your neighborhood gets the party in 2017, now's your chance. It just happens to be time for the 11th Annual Hood-to-Hood Challenge! Donate now and make sure your 'hood gets a head start before this Friday's Summer One-Day Drive. Will West Seattle rise again? Follow along and find out!
