Show Preview: The 2012 Capitol Hill Block Party on Capitol Hill, Fri. 7/20

The 2012 Capitol Hill Block Party takes control of key sections off Broadway this weekend. An annual summer tradition, this year’s shows take place July 20th, 21st, and 22nd. That’s this Friday, Saturday and Sunday if you’re not a date person. For those of you who might have no idea which bands to see, the Block Party’s site shares details on all bands and DeliRadio put together a nifty station to hear random acts. Right now I am listening to Seattle’s Crime Wave. Sounding pretty good. I’ve got a few suggestions, but wherever you end up it sounds like you will find something entertaining – 100 bands! A full schedule is available here. First up: Friday.
