Fly Moon Royalty ‘pop off’ at Neumos in the new year

Fly Moon Royalty. Three common words which, when arranged in this specific order, become memorable.

It’s fortunate that the neo-soul duo that performs under this name is charismatic and sassy enough to live up to the title. Case in point: When asked what her New Year’s resolution was, lead singer Adra Boo simply said, “to pop off.” It wasn’t clear if she was referring to her music or her social life. Hopefully both.

The Capitol Hill Block Party opened Friday to a large crowd in what has become one of the biggest music events in the Northwest. This year the festival is expected to attract more than 30,000 attendees to Pike Street throughout the weekend. It’s the 17th year for the popular urban event, and a forecast of sunny weather made it crowded. On Friday the festival was sold out by six, though single-day tickets remain for Saturday and Sunday.

More than a hundred bands will play on five stages over three days on Pike Street, and in nearby venues. The biggest crowds are expected on Sunday, when The Flaming Lips headline.

On Friday night, local band Telekinesis played on the main stage to a crowd of several thousand. The band is the creation of singer Michael Lerner, whose well-crafted alternative rock songs were a perfect counterpoint to the hip-hop and dance music that are the Block Party’s bread and butter.
