The first truly hot weekend of the year boasts one of the highlights of the summer: the third annual East End block party, where the long haired and black-clad faithful gather to bake under the sun, quenching themselves with beer. As tradition has come to dictate, the two-day lineup of bands is heavy on punk and metal, including sets from Redd Kross, Danava, Quintron, Lord Dying, Witch Mountain, Thrones, Nucular Aminals, and Sons of Huns. Come for the music and beer, and stay for the novelty of doing this in the parking lot instead of the basement.


Things kick off tomorrow at 1, so be sure to wake up in time and make yourself presentable.
