A lot of you are heading to the Gorge this weekend for the 3-day festival Sasquatch and I dont blame you if I wasnt taking off for a 4 day vacation in the sun I would be at Sasquatch as well. The line-up is great this year, you’ve got everyone from Foo Fighters to Death Cab to Modest Mouse for those interested in the mainstream. To round it out you’ve got my favorites RATATAT, Major Lazer, Chromeo, Yeasayer, Flogging Molly, and Aloe Blacc. And really thats only the beginning you’ve also got Seattle best groups all lined up this weekend from Macklemore to Mad Rad.

Ive attended many a Capital Hill Block Parties and its a festival I love and hate. I love love love my city of Seattle and having 3 days in the sun surrounded by amazing music and the diversity of this city is RAD. Especially with the Block Party being right in the heart of Capital Hill one of our most eclectic neighborhoods. But with that being said… also comes thousands of people crammed into a couple blocks sweating all over you stumbling between stage to stage only to try and sneak into one of the venues and find its even hotter inside and shoulder to shoulder there as well. But there is no way to have a BLOCK PARTY without having all of the cons right there with the pros.
This year is no let down in the music department either. Here is the partial line-up and presales go on sale this Friday at 10am.I cant wait to see TV on the Radio and Ghostland Observatory both amazing bands that should be headlining this year.
