Capitol Hill Block Party

This year's Block Party is—and I say this not because The Stranger is sponsoring it, but because it's true—the best Block Party ever. They heard your cries for more Girl Talk! They brought in notoriously entertaining live acts like the Hold Steady, Les Savy Fav, and Jay Reatard! And they made it even bigger by adding the King Cobra stage! Check out the sexy, sweaty pullout in this week's issue for the complete schedule and write-ups on every single band—and remember to chase your beer with water. It's not fun to party with heatstroke. (Pike St and 11th Ave, 1 pm–3 am, $18, some stages all ages/some stages 21+.)

Say "YES" to War on Iraq

by Dan Savage
October 2002

"War may be bad for children and other living things, but there are times when peace is worse for children and other living things, and this is one of those times."

"In the meantime, invading and rebuilding Iraq will not only free the Iraqi people, it will also make the Saudis aware of the consequences they face if they continue to oppress their own people while exporting terrorism and terrorists. The War on Iraq will make it clear to our friends and enemies in the Middle East (and elsewhere) that we mean business: Free your people, reform your societies, liberalize, and democratize... or we're going to come over there, remove you from power, free your people, and reform your societies for ourselves

@1: Agreed. The line of hand-holding, mascaraed 9-year-olds who also attempted to push me (and another dozen folks) over when we entered on the Broadway-side entrance, yeah ... it made me feel every day of my 24 years. Glad their Buds didn't spill.

@1 That was an awful sight...worse than an MTV special. Like a bus from an Issaquah highshool unloaded on stage.

But Jay Reatard F@&*ing ROCKED:)
