Today, the city officials voted to allow the Capitol Hill Block Party to continue running for three glorious, beer-drenched, music-infused days, despite some neighbor's objections that the three-day event was "too disruptive for businesses."

"We're super happy that the community supports the event and all three days," said Block Party producer Dave Meinert when reached by phone. At the meeting, Meinert and his colleagues were praised by the city's special events committee for their extensive public outreach.

The Block Party is scheduled for July 22-24. Ticket sales and breaking band bookings will be announced on Line Out in the coming weeks.

And the youths rejoiced. And it was Good.
