The Capitol Hill Block Party — Seattle’s favorite one-day actual block party-turned three-day corporate-sponsored music festival — is returning to a fenced-in Pike Street for the 17th year this weekend.

Friday’s lineup boasts headlining indie-rock veterans Spoon, who haven’t released an album since 2010s “Transference” but have a new one called “They Want My Soul” on the way that comes packed with a wannabe slacker-pop summer anthem “Do You.” Brooklyn DIY keyboard/drums dance-pop sweethearts Matt & Kim will also bring their energetic, feel-good live set to the main stage.
