It is from the album Creep on Creepin’ on (album art above).

See you at the Capitol Hill Block Party

I love summer, and nothing says summer like a music festival.  That is why I am so very very excited to head to Seattle for the Capitol Hill Block Party in July.

It will be my first time at the event, my first music festival of the year and my first trip to Seattle in a long time.  I can hardly wait.  I am most excited to see TVOTR (this will be my third time seeing them),  Pink Mountaintops, and the Head and the Heart. And tickets are only $75 for a three day pass, which is a pretty amazing deal… Even rain couldn’t dampen my excitement for this. Weeee!
