Capitol Hill Block Party Sunday schedule brings me to focus even more on local acts in this year’s lineup. Seattle bands such as Kithkin, Haunted Horses and Sisters have my attention – do they ever.
Have fun during the final day of CHBP. Whether you plan ahead or just arrive and be surprised, there’s a lot of great music to hear.
Ever-so-android @ Barboza
Popular Seattle electro-rock duo Ever-so-android released a fabulous self-titled EP last year. I recommend catching them at Barboza, as not only do they sound awesome, (hi, Hope Simpson’s rad vocals) they look intriguing, too!
XXYYXX @ the Main Stage
XXYYXX makes a stop in Seattle before leaving the country for several European shows. The project, (Florida’s Marcel Everett,) makes some pretty sweet electronic sounds.
Kithkin @ the Vera Stage
Sunday’s Kithkin show, the unique and fiery band’s first Seattle show since returning from tour, will be packed. Don’t let that scare you off, just be warned that there will be many happy Kithkin fans. I don’t think they’ll bite.
Haunted Horses @ the Cha Cha Stage
Their biography says it all. Or does it? “A woman who died in 1976 after unsuccessful attempts to perform an exorcism upon her with psychotropic drugs” reads Haunted Horses’ bio on Facebook. The duo of Colin Dawson and Myke Pelly plays excellent hard goth.
Sisters @ the Barboza Stage
Sisters, a duo of Seattle’s Andrew Vait and Emily Westman, released a really, really good single called “Back 2 U,” and based on that alone I suggest this is a show very worthy of your time. Smooth, electronic, kind of soul. . . nice.
Dum Dum Girls @ the Vera Stage
Right after Sisters finishes its show, I recommend you see Dum Dum Girls. The New York quintet is another popular act sure to have a crowd of fans.
