Fight For Your Right – the CultureMob Guide to the Capitol Hill Block Party 2012
That’s right, it’s that time of year again – the sun is out (just), the staff at Molly Moon’s are rushed off their feet, and the Capitol Hill Block Party will be taking over our lives once more for the next 72 hours. Wherever you are in Seattle, it’s hard to miss the three-day, six-stage, 110 artist urban bash that takes over Capitol Hill this weekend. As always, it promises more bands than you can throw a cupcake at, as well as performance art, throbbing counterculture, and the resident art galleries, restaurants, clubs, and stores that populate the neighborhood. It’s little wonder that it was named by USA Today‘s â€œPop Candyâ€ as one of the â€œTwelve reasons to visit Seattleâ€.
CultureMob will be covering all three days of the festival right here, so stay tuned for the latest news, reviews and updates live from Capitol Hill. We also have a selection of previews, so if you’re heading to the Block Party then be sure to check this page, or look for the Block Party tag.
Beyond that, party hard, party smart, party like you mean it. And don’t forget your sunhat.
