Music Fests, Oh My – CHBP & Timber! This Weekend

It’s a big weekend for music, Seattleites! Capitol Hill Block Party is going to be in full swing, for those who love big crowds and… challenging parking. Three day passes are currently sold out but there are still single day tickets available so you may still be able to see The Flaming Lips, Girl Talk, Pickwick, STRFKR, Purity Ring, Telekinesis and other favorites form the NW and beyond. Also, this weekend marks the first annual Timber! Outdoor Music Festival out in Carnation, WA, for those who love campfires and sleeping on the ground. Timber! is a brand new festival from the fine folks who brought you Doe Bay Fest, so expect something more intimate and more natural than the urban alternative this week. Don’t miss anticipated sets from The Fruit Bats, Helio Sequence, Lemolo and Ivan & Alyosha, among others… So really, there’s something for everyone!
