The KushKrew’s 2018 Capitol Hill Block Party Recap

2018 Capitol Hill Block Party recap – It was three days of great music, food, and vibes. CHBP is one of the happiest festivals out there.

Day 1

Day one was highlighted by the announcement of Goldlink’s cancellation. Goldlink’s misfortune was a blessing in disguise for obsessive Seattle hip-hop fans like myself. Sammy “Huckleberry” Lachow himself was called in on short notice to fill the 6:30 PM main stage bill. In true Lachow fashion, he showed up exhausted and hung over from a night of partying and debauchery, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Lachow was joined on stage by Jake Crocker who held down the DJ decks, and Saint Claire who provided violin rifts and backup vocals.

After Lachow, I watched Sol do his thing on the main stage as well. Sol is one of the most consistent performers from Seattle. His sound is always smooth and beautiful, and his message is poignant and inspiring. The highlight of his performance was his homies that became his back up dancers during “If You Don’t Call.” They gave the set a silly boy band vibe that the crowd got a kick out of.

Ending day 1 was Dillon Francis. Rocking a backward dad hat with a Gucci jacket, Francis threw down for 90 minutes of unadulterated EDM fun. As much flack as EDM DJs get today (much of it warranted), Francis is a real one. He created a special VIP edit just for his CHBP set and the crowd was thrilled.

Day 2

Day 2 was more low key for me, once I left the comfort of the Cloud Room lounge, I hung out at Vera Stage to catch Paris Alexia. Paris Alexia is a multi-talented musician that sings, raps and plays the keys. Paris Alexia ha a great sound and drips swag and unbridled confidence.

I caught Chet Porter at the Vera stage as well. Porter seemed very appreciative and grateful for his chance to perform at CHBP. He played an incredibly bubbly dance music set that had the whole crowd vibing with his innocent and happy sounds.

Day 3

As is common with festivals, the last day always takes the longest to fill up. Why? Well, people party too hard during the first two days and are slow-moving once Sunday arrives. Lucky for me, I don’t drink much (anymore), so I entered the festival early, feeling fresh, and felt like I had the entire place to myself.

The first set I attended was Ryan Caraveo. The Seattle spitter was greeted by a crowd filled with his hardcore fans. A set filled with lyrics covering topics about doing what you want and chasing your dreams; it was hard to feel like you couldn’t accomplish your wildest dreams after his set.whole crowd vibing with his innocent and happy sounds.

After I killed a couple drinks at the Comet Bar, I made my way to Neumos and saw a few acts that had me smiling and dancing along including DJ. Ross Grizzly and Katie Schecter.

Cashmere Cat brought his interesting sounds to the main stage. He drew a large crowd by the time his set was rolling and it was the first time the main stage filled up during day three.

Two Feet’s set was defined by simplicity. Him, his guitar and his friend with a drum machine put on the best musical set I’ve seen all year. Deep emotional guitar rifts brought Two Feet to his knees as he melted the crowd with his music. He has a style of guitar playing that’s completely his own. He makes turns a common electric instrument into a powerful musical tool, used to deliver his emotions to the audience.

Two Feet felt right at home on stage and he played through his entire catalog of music in about 50-55 minutes. Two Feet is still so new to this level of musical exposure, he didn’t even have enough new music to cover a 60-minute set. Did he panic? Not one bit. Two Feet replayed his two best songs, “Fuck You” and “I feel Like I’m Drowning” and the crowd absolutely loved it. Two Feet is a born rock star, and I was honored to see such a talented artist in the early stages of his career. I can’t wait to see how his career blossoms.
