Bloodshot Records. Hideout. Bands. Beer. Food. Why aren’t you there already? Bloodshot takes over Hideout for the famed Block Party to celebrate its fifteenth anniversary and, let’s face it, this is pretty much a guaranteed good time and you got nothing better to do this weekend anyway. There’s a kids area, some races or something and a drunk spelling bee. Plus…The Waco Brothers, Alejandro Escovedo, Deadstring Brothers, Scott H. Biram, Scotland Yard Gospel Choir, Moonshine Willy, Bobby Bare Jr., The Blacks, Jon Langford & Sally Timms and Sanctified Grumblers. The Hideout September bash has been my personal “say goodbye to summer” event for the last few years now, and I can’t think of a better way to prepare for the wrath of fall and winter. (Tom Lynch)
