Plebian Paradise is back.
Everyone’s least favorite music festival is back and possibly better than ever! Keeping with a tradition that dates back hundreds of centuries to exactly this time last summer, the preview for Capitol Hill Block Party will be written in the style of everyone’s favorite book series. In reality, there exists an almost incalculable amount of possibilities that could happen once you enter the festival gates on Friday afternoon (get off of work early). However, I am from the future. I have already seen your festival going experience unfold days in advance and now I am going to share it with the entire world six other people. Read about it now in blog form and perhaps you can alter your fate (maybe you don’t want to do that because my writing is stellar and you want my words to be your life). Enjoy? (all complaints can be sent to email@example.com)
You leave work early on Friday afternoon even though your dictator of a boss gave you an eyebrow raise that indicated you might want to reconsider your decision. “In the future you’ll pay for this in blood,” you hear your boss mutter under their breath as you walk out the door. As the sunlight hits your eyes upon your escape, you finally realize that freedom is not free after all (How many ounces of blood will your bloodsucking boss take from your veins? Time will tell).
You arrive at the festival gates at a quarter-til-five, leaving you only a few minutes to make a decision on how to start your weekend. Your options are BOAT at the Vera Stage and….well, that’s it. Festival planners have given the native Seattle band the ultimate monopoly on everyone’s favorite drinking start time. You missed BOAT’S Daytrotter Session and haven’t seen the band since their album release show at the Tractor. Your inner nerd is screaming with glee because you’re about to be reunited with a band who truly understands you.
