KEXP's Hood To Hood

Apparently West Seattle wakes up early - or at least KEXP is hoping so, since they’re kicking off their ultimate block party at 7:30 a.m. But what they have ensured is that the lineup, fittingly filled with West Seattle natives, has something for everyone, from the Chief Sealth High School marching band and superhero-rapping duo Victor Shade to troubadour Damien Jurado and shoegaze-popster Erik Blood. If the music draw isn’t enough, the festival also includes DJ sets at venues across the ‘hood, plus musical family activities at Cupcake Royale for the kids. And with King County Water Taxi offering free trips to the show from Pier 50, your excuses not to find your way to West Seattle are seriously dwindling. With Erik Blood, Damien Jurado, Victor Shade, Head Like a Kite. NICK FELDMAN
