Capitol Hill Block Party 2012: SpaceGhostPurrpPosted by Bebe Besch
Merch tents and the main stage were being torn down after Neko Case’s set finished at the Capiotl Hill Block Party on Day 3, but there were still a few sets left to be run. Neumos and Barboza held packed sets for the rest of the night as the final CHBP goers who still had energy left filled the small venue spaces. Ra Scion filled out the narrow venue of Barboza and Trash Talk was a non-stop stage diver’s dream up above inside Neumos.
From the exact opposite corner of our country, South Floridian rapper SpaceGhostPurrp took the stage next at Neumos, to a rambunctious group of sweaty, sexy left overs from the festival. SpaceGhostPirrp just released his debut album Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp on 4AM in June and brought those lyrics to share with us on Sunday. The bass inside was undeniable, and though everything outside the venue was being stripped down, SpaceGhostPurrp continued to bring the party well into the night until Don’t Talk to the Cops! claimed their spot last on the festival’s bill.
