SSDD

As always, the lineup includes a few cool local Seattle bands, and it’s a good way to check out some of those bands if you’re coming to the fest from out of town. One is SSDD (aka “Steal Shit Do Drugs”). They include former members of The Intelligence, The Dutchess & the Duke and more, and they just put out a new EP First Comes Money on Help Yourself Records this week. They make garage punk that’s pretty catchy and clear-sounding as far as garage punk goes, but still driving and full of attitude. Stream their new EP below.

So Pitted

Another cool Seattle punk band that isn’t is playing Capitol Hill Block Party, and have a hometown show with Happy Diving and Never Young a few days beforehand, is So Pitted. Their latest release is this year’s 1 EP, which is a little murkier and freakier than SSDD. They’ve had their praises sung by other Seattle bands, like Chastity Belt. They also recently played a Sub Pop-curated show with White Lung, and ended up on one of the Sub Pop staffers’ year-end lists in 2014. You can stream their newest EP below and download it (name your price) here.
