In anticipation of CHBP (which is just two weeks away!) I am excited to say that we can’t wait to see lofi folk singer/songwriter Angel Olsen. Her most recent album Burn Your Fire for No Witness was on heavy rotation this spring, especially on my show “No Boys Allowed”! Her melodic and profoundly personal songs are both haunting and cleansing, especially evident on track "White Fire". Her debut album Half Way Home contains heavy hearted lamentations alongside odes to beautiful friendships. The personal nature of her work sometimes is unsettlingly revealing yet as a listener I am thankful for the ability to relate.
Olsen is sure to put on an amazing show at the main stage on Sunday, July 27th at 2:15pm.

The annual Capitol Hill Block Party is coming up on the weekend of July 25th through the 27th with a truly awesome lineup of bands and artists. One of these bands is the local band Stickers. Formed in Seattle in 2010, Stickers has been making noise punk and playing shows in the D-I-Y tradition ever since. Refusing to follow the mold of a standard rock band, Stickers uses unconventional instruments such as a saxophone to add to the abrasiveness of their sound. When asked to describe their sound on on their website, the band says they are simply “four young shredders getting off on the thrash.” One has to agree when listening to their three releases, including their EP Brother Keith, which sounds like a great combination of catchy punk and no wave experimentalism.
If you are looking for a show that will be as entertaining as it is loud, check out Stickers on Sunday July 27th at the Cha Cha Stage at 4:45 PM! Also stay tuned for the band’s upcoming first album Swollen, which will be released on End of Time Records on August 12th.
