This being my first time at Capitol Hill Block Party, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. And considering that my first impression was Friday’s frat boy fest, I’m surprised I survived the weekend with all my limbs and dignity intact. Surrounded by a considerably young crowd, even I – at 24 – felt old.

Not to say that the lineup on Friday wasn’t fun – it was. The mainstage brought the likes of Telekinesis, Danny Brown, STRFKR, and Girl Talk, so it was as if all the energy from Sasquatch was put in a pressure cooker with some glow sticks and toilet paper – and that’s was Friday was. A lineup laden with hip hop and electro, the excitement never stopped; thankfully for me, Friday was the only day like that.

A couple of other standouts that day filled Neumos – Grave Babies and Fly Moon Royalty. They’re totally different genres, but equally as entertaining. That could be the theme for the weekend, and Seattle really: all kinds of music, all with their own audience within the city and the festival.

Stay tuned for more from Block Party!
