Did I go to the Capitol Hill Block Party this weekend? Well, yeah. Duh. I'd recap, but really, Three Imaginary Girls wrote a better review than I could, so read that instead.

I will say that the standout band at the show was Penn.-based The Shackeltons. Both (Sm)Ashley and I thought they were so great that we ditched the Block Party a little early to catch them again at The High Dive that night. You can check out their MySpace page, but most of The Shackelton's appeal is their live show. The lead singer is incredibly dramatic and engaging, and they've got an AMAZING 16-year-old drummer that makes his small, 7-piece drum kit sound like a warzone.

Speaking of The High Dive, guess who's playing there Saturday, August 18?
