1 Show Preview: SRG's CHBP (and MORE!) Schedule

WHAT'S NOT WEAK THIS WEEKEND - a rock show roundup from SRG

Yay, it's summer!  And for Capitol Hill's denizens, that means you're going to have a bitch of a time getting anywhere this weekend, as the neighborhood's artistic community throws its annual Block Party.  It's as big as ever this year, with a range of bands every bit as diverse as you might expect to see perform in such a boho borough as the Hill.  We all know that heavy music doesn't exactly appeal to the fattest cross-section of casual showgoers, you might be wondering if there is anything worth banging your head to at this hipsterfest.  Fortunately, the answer is an emphatic YES.  The organizers deserve some props for providing rock fans an escape from the Molly-addled college kids wriggling in the streets to the unicorn farts of Flaming Lips, or along with some pablum electronica star oonce-ooncing away on the main stage.  In fact, there's plenty for us to do!  See below for a day-by-day recommendation list to get your rock on.

9:00pm – Dog Shredder (Barboza Stage)

But wait, there's more!  Just a cheap cab ride, or brazenly drunken stagger down the hill is this show that SRG Brother Nik organized -- because he's just a that kind of mofuckin' genius!

SRG and Good To Die Present:
Helms Alee | Rabbits | Qui | The Great Goddamn @ The Black Lodge

It's actually pretty hard to imagine that any of these bands were passed over for the Block Party this year, but luckily for us Seattle heavy music freaks, they were (though in truth, Rabbits was not, as they are playing the Cha Cha stage at 5:45).  This is easily one of the most WORTHY bills we have ever put together at SRG.

As an added bonus, just next door, at the Victory Lounge is this:

Great Falls | Into The Open Earth (CA) | Thac0 @ Victory Lounge

All will be timed to play during set breaks at the Black Lodge and vice versa, so that's 7 amazing bands for around $10 total.  You won't find a better value (or many better bands) anywhere this weekend.
