Live at the Capitol Hill Block Party: Sunday

Sunday at the 2011 Capitol Hill Block Party was all about one band for me: Battles. Battles! They’d done a fantastic show at the Crocodile back in May, and I was thrilled beyond belief when I heard that they’d be back in Seattle so soon for the Block Party. Indeed, I was so focused onRead more…

Live at the Capitol Hill Block Party: Saturday

Live Review: Battles with IG88 @ The Crocodile 5/5

Thursday May 5 was a concert I’d been hoping to see for the past three years: the return of Battles to Seattle. I’d been fortunate to see them at the (old) Crocodile Cafe back in 2007, and then again at Bumbershoot 2008 when they were unquestionably the most exciting act for the weekend. Now, afterRead more…
