The energy flow of a bustling arts district swiftly transitions every few months now on the hill. For the art or music provocateurs curiosity kills as to what memories are in store for reconstruction. CHBP, a key contributor, originally a do-it-yourself gathering turned multimedia experience, launches its initial lineup for its 20th annual day party!
The CHBP squad states they have secured a lineup including “CHVRCHES, experimental electro-pop group Crystal Castles, and local electronic duo ODESZA.” Jason Lajeunesse, Capitol Hill Block Party’s owner and producer reflects on the series: “Reaching a 20 year milestone really speaks to Capitol Hill’s commitment and support of music and art. The city is growing at an alarming rate, so the fact that we are able to continue championing national and local music talent in the middle of the streets, on this scale, is pretty remarkable.”
