There's nothing quite like summertime in Seattle and nothing quite like the Capitol Hill Block Party. Founded in 1997, the festival turns 21 this year, and what better way to celebrate than with live music across six stages, multiple beer gardens, and tons of live music. KEXP took to the Pike-Pine corridor on Friday; check out photos from photographers Eric Tra, Niffer Calderwood, and Alley Rutzel below! (Complete sets can be viewed here.)
Starting tomorrow and running through Sunday is this year's Capitol Hill Block Party. In another act of civil servitude, Martin Douglas points you toward the local bands you should definitely check out this weekend.
