Capitol Hill Block Party today announced a partial lineup of performers for its 22nd annual music and arts festival, scheduled for July 20-22 in the heart of Capitol Hill in the Pike Pine corridor. Headliners include indie-folk singer Father John Misty, electronic DJ Dillon Francis and hip-hop group BROCKHAMPTON.
Father John Misty
As a music journalist for a decade and a half, I see a lot of live music. But every once in a while, I catch a concert that gives me a special feeling of knowing that I have seen music history and something sonically special. This was one of those moments. A few years ago here, it was Lana Del Rey who captivated her sold out show. This summer, it was her male musical soul mate Father John Misty.
Trudging into the Independent on yet another cold, appropriately misty San Francisco night, I was quite honestly exhausted and wishing I was in my bed. While I had been wholly captivated by Father John Misty at Outside Lands last month...my bed was so warm. However, I made the adult decision to stay and enjoy the show. Thank God I did.
