SEATTLE — What is it with festivals and rain this year? Sasquatch and now Block Party. Did you know the last weekend in July is historically the driest weekend of the year in Seattle?

But for those out Friday night, sipping on overpriced tall boys and listening to the crunchy sounds coming from all corners of Pike and Broadway, dry was not on the mind.

Did it dampen our spirits, though? Heck no! In fact, during Built to Spill’s set as the rain started to come down, the crowd roared at the sight of it.  In a drought year, a Seattleite’s thirst for rain is like a Seattleite’s thirst for music. Rain and tunes. It’s what make this city ours.
