Line Out All Your Block Party Memories (and Then Some) Are Over in Line Out

You’re probably still hung over, but Line Out is already overflowing with photos, videos, and reviews from this weekend’s Block Party.
Wanna see what you missed?
On Friday afternoon, the Saturday Knights started the weekend off by destroying Jason Lajuenesse’s bass drum.
Matt & Kim followed them up by being the happiest band on the planet despite the fact they are now stranded in Seattle.
Later that afternoon rumors started to spread that the Blood Brothers are calling it quits, but they still put on a killer show.
And at the end of the day, Girl Talk played to an excited, sweaty, and oversold crowd. They were turning hundreds of people away at the door, but Jeff Kirby was one of the lucky ones to get in. (BTW, I’m glad you didn’t drink that mystery beer, Jeff.)
Saturday started out with some survival tips from Donte Parks, and Eric Grandy’s thoughts on Friday. And then PWRFL POWER charmed everyone (including Jonathan Zwicikel) with his songs about chopsticks and a funky tribute to Green Day.
Over in Neumo’s, a bong and a Big Mac battled in the mosh pit during Sunday Night Blackout’s set, and just 30 minutes later, the Whore Moans treated the crowd to a fashion show. What’s hip this summer? “Cool dad on vacay.” Ryan from the Whore Moans demonstrates.
There’s a bunch more to come over the next couple days too—interviews with bands, more photos, the infamous Crayolas, and, as everyone stars to recover from their hangovers, sunburns and/or exhaustion, probably some more reviews and thoughts of the weekend. I’m too tired to do it now, but I still want to rave about how great Against Me! was, and tell you about how Ben Gibbard told me I don’t like music. Well, basically.
For now, there’s also this, my favorite 20 seconds of the whole weekend. This is what happens when a bunch of (drunk) people get bored in the beer garden while waiting for the after-party to start. I’m so glad I had my camera.
