Capitol Hill Block Party 2008

Posted by dancehallhips on April 15, 2008

If you ask me, Capitol Hill Block Party might be Seattle’s best bang for your buck when it comes to festivals. I’ve been the last three years, and have never regretted go, nor has my pocket book. I’m a little surprised at how early the line-up has gone up though, and the coverage it’s gotten already. Not really a “block party” anymore, but a mad dash for tickets. I know last year people were coming from all over to see Girl Talk. Thanks to CHBP I’ve had the chance to see Sir Mix-A-Lot sing “My Posse’s on Broadway”…a block away from Broadway, and a legendary Murder City Devils reunion show, just to name a few. So without further ado, here’s the confirmed lineup thus far:

Friday, July 25th
Vampire Weekend
Les Savy Fav
Girl Talk
The Dodos
Jay Reatard
Pwrfl Power
Past Lives
Black Eyes And Neckties
Champagne Champagne
Plus many more!!!

Saturday July, 26th
Surprise Guest!!
The Hold Steady
Kimya Dawson
Darker My Love
The Builders & The Butchers
The Hands
Valella Valella
The Physics
Man Plus
Little Party And Bad Business
Plus many more!!!

That better be a damn good ‘Suprise Guest’ because Friday’s hands down the better day.

My guess, is Public Enemy. Hah!
