Photos: Capitol Hill Block Party Day 3

On the last day of Capitol Hill Block Party it rained. No one seemed fazed. Instead people, danced, laughed, posed, sang, and drank. I ran to Bartells, and bought the last rain poncho. I rushed back to hit the streets along with every photo pit I could get to. Here are those moments. See you next year.

Review: 7/15 Videoasis at Northwest Film Forum

Everyday you immerse yourself in the local music scene, and you know a witty filmmaker. You both love music videos. You are best friends. You laugh together, play, dance, and gab about whatever. Then you create an event that’s all about your favorite music videos. You fuse both your passions into one thing. Such is the tale of HLY SHT event VJs Sharlese Metcalf, KEXP and Bobby McHugh, World Famous. Every few months they throw a party… Videoasis at the Northwest Film Forum. This month’s theme? Their birthday celebration. Not just any though because they enticed their audience with an advertisement, “FREE CANDY.” Sean Morrow deejayed on the balcony. The place was packed and was probably even sold out. Wow! Top that.

Please enjoy the video premiere that my bestest partner in crime Drake of Jurado Films made of the festivities.

Photos & Review: David Gray @ Marymoor Park

David Gray co-headlined with Amos Lee at Marymoor Park in Redmond, Washington on July 13th. Most of the crowd was on their feet and dancing in front of the stage only 20 minutes into his 90-minute set. I’ve seen David a number of times before – coincidently for the first time at the same venue – and he sounded great. And he still has his characteristic head bobble. With 12 albums to his credit, David had a lot of material to draw from, including songs from his latest album, Mutineers.
Joseph – Portland sisters Allison, Meegan and Natalie Closner – opened and also came on stage during David’s set to add their beautiful harmonies to “Gulls.”

The final songs before the encore included excellent renditions of “Please Forgive Me” and “Babylon,” with the audience singing on the latter. The show ended all too soon due to the city-imposed 10pm curfew.

Capitol Hill Block Party is mostly about the music and the neighborhood. Here are some shots of some music people, those who live on the hill, and some who work on Pike/Pine all year long…
