This Friday and Saturday we're sponsoring Seattle's 2-day music megablast known as the Capitol Hill Block Party. Umpteen bands are playing with big boys like Vampire Weekend (above), Les Savy Fav, Hold Steady, and Chromeo sharing four stages with local acts like U.S.E., Fleet Foxes, Throw Me the Statue, and tons more. It all kicks off at 4 pm today and tickets (sans service charge!) are on sale for $18/per day at each of our 4 Seattle stores. Art lovers bonus: From 2-7pm on Saturday, Greg "Pnut" Galinsky will be at our 4518 University Way NE location painting custom Vans slip-ons. It's first come, first served with a minimum $10 donation that'll be split between the two charities the Block Party is supporting: VERA Seattle and Home Alive.
