Capitol Hill Block Party 2013 ready to rock
Capitol Hill Block Party 2012, by Bettina Hansen / The Seattle Times.
Capitol Hill Block Party — the annual music blowout in the heart of the Pike/Pine neighborhood — gets under way at 4 p.m. today.
The gates open at 3 p.m. on East Pike Street and 12th Avenue. More than 100 bands are slated to play on a half-dozen stages before the festival closes Sunday night, and some tickets are still available.
It’s a good bet that the music will be good (see Andrew Matson’s preview and his top picks) and that the traffic will be terrible.
