For the third year running, KEXP brought exclusive sessions during the Capitol Hill Block Party live from the Caffe Vita Bean Room. Handsome Furs, The Head and the Heart, Fucked Up, Austra, My Goodness, and The Posies were among the 13 bands playing on our secret stage. Unfortunately, capacity was limited, so not all who wanted to got in, but fortunately for everyone, our cameras were there to capture each performance. Here’s the first round of videos, with The Head and the Heart stripped down to just three members, Champagne Champagne stepping up their game, The Posies reminding us why they’ve always been Seattle’s power-pop darlings, and Austra spellbinding the crowd with their hypnotic dance moves. Stay tuned for more!
