Seattle's Capitol Hill Party: Sonic Youth, Jesus Lizard, Lips

The 2009 Capitol Hill Block Party
Seattle's Premiere Celebration of Independent Music - July 24 & July 25

Sonic Youth
The 2009 Capitol Hill Block Party takes over Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood July 24-25. The Block Party is an annual music festival that draws upon and showcases the best indie and underground rock in the U.S., with a special focus on its Northwest artists. Launched 12 years ago, the Block Party has evolved into one of Seattle's most anticipated outdoor parties. With over 40 bands on 3 stages, great food, and plenty of cheap beer, this is by far the best party of the summer.

John Richards - KEXP Morning Show Host exclaims, "There is no other local event that truly brings the Seattle music community together (and not just because of the free booze in the VIP area...well not all because of that), the people behind the music, the artists, local media and most importantly the fans."

"Seattle's biggest plunge into pop culture... The Capitol Hill Block Party is the rock-music community's most prestigious showcase." -The Seattle Times

"The Capitol Hill Block Party is a huge, two-day explosion of bands and a great opportunity to see the most exciting new music from the best music scene in the country all while supporting great non-profit programs like The Vera Project and Home Alive. -The Stranger

Partial proceeds from The Block Party benefit two excellent non-profits: Home Alive, which encourages violence prevention, and The Vera Project, a youth run all ages venue and recording studio in Seattle.

The Block Party continues to be one of the least expensive festivals in the country.
