- You don't need to stop having fun just because the Block Party is over!
Oh no. It's Monday, all your warm fuzzies from the Capitol Hill Block Party are fading into the harshness of the work week. Well there's no reason not to keep the party going, and continue to enjoy the awesome art and music that Seattle has to offer all those other days of the year.
Here are some fun things to do post-Block Party this week:
Go see some rock-and-roll posters at Ghost Gallery.

You have about a week or so left to catch the amazing 'The Art of Music' exhibit at Saint John's Bar and Eatery on the Hill. Curated by The Stranger's own art director, Aaron Huffman and Ghost Gallery's Laurie Kearney, the exhibit features a collection of posters featuring national and local Seattle bands that were once wheat pasted all over the city.
Watch the documentary Wheedle's Groove.
Not a lot of people know this, but Seattle actually had a vibrant, thriving and funky soul and R&B scene in the seventies. 'Wheedle's Groove' documents it all, from the Central District's hopping late night clubs, to input on the scene by Seattle music legends: Quincy Jones, Sir-Mix-A-Lot, and even…believe it or not..Kenny G.
Check out some live performances in the Olympic Sculpture Park.

- Midday Veil will be at the Olympic Sculpture Park this Thursday
Combine your love of art, music AND being outdoors this Thursday for Seattle Art Museum's Summer at SAM, a series of art tours, music and activities at the Olympic Sculpture Park downtown. Local psych-rockers Midday Veil will be there, with their dramatic, genre-defying sound, and there will also be yoga, zumba, an art tour of the park, and fun art activities like "deco glamming" your own posters.
