Details: The third and final day of Capitol Hill Block Party brought a live set by American DJ/Producer Diplo at the Main Stage. Real name Thomas Wesley Pentz, Diplo is an artist you’ve heard, even if you didn’t realize it. He’s worked with Beyoncé, Usher, M.I.A., among others, and he won a Grammy for “Where Are Ü Now.” Also on the Main Stage were British DJs Snakehips, rapper Danny Brown and indie singer-songwriter Julie Byrne. Over at Neumos, He Whose Ox is Gored played a hard rock set, and the Vera Stage hosted Perfume Genius; original rapper/performance artist Mykki Blanco; Torres (we’re happy to add that Torres’ new album, Three Futures, is available on 9/29); and pop duo Diet Cig. New Seattle band fronted by Pearl Dragon, The White Tears & Pearl Dragon is Dead had a spot on Barboza’s lineup.
