All Is Quiet on the Western Front

Posted by Jeff Albertson

Breaking news: A minor scuffle just happened in the middle of the Pike Street and Broadway Avenue intersection when a fleeing shoplifter was tackled and pummeled by a security guard from QFC. In a matter of seconds a swarm of Seattle Police cruisers were on the scene -- lights flashing and sirens wailing. Police had the suspect cuffed and stuffed in a matter of seconds.

Officer McDonald, first initial M., from the Seattle Police department assured me the minor tussle was in no way related to the Capitol Hill Block Party. Officer McDonald would not confirm that the weekend's festivities have been quiet, nor would he even say the "q" word (his words, not mine) but he did sound relieved and agreed that so far the party has been uneventful.

Phew. So far so good.

As you were.

Oh yeah, on the main stage right now the Brooklyn-based band the Hold Steady is killing it with their riff-heavy classic-rock jams.
