Girl Talk, Chromeo Play Capitol Hill

With Sup Pop's 20th Anniversary Party finished and the 2008 Decibel Festival still a couple months away, Seattle looks to to another kind of multi-day party for the interim. The Capitol Hill Block Party, now in its 11th year, is an annual music showcase that gathers indie and underground bands in the U.S., with a special focus on Northwest-based artists.

The 2008 edition, to take place July 25 and 26, will feature four stages, live performances broadcast on Seattle's KEXP radio station, and a lineup that includes Girl Talk, Chromeo, Les Savy Fav, Vampire Weekend, Mika Miko, Common Market, and many more.

Tickets are probably the cheapest you'll find for any outdoor festival this year, with advance passes being a mere $18 and two-day tickets priced at $34. Partial proceeds will go towards violence-prevention non-profit Home Alive and The Vera Project, a youth-operated, all-ages venue and recording studio.
