For the past 6 years my friend Nicole and I have attended the Basilica Block Party. I guess you could say its something of a tradition. For anyone who doesn’t know what this is, it’s basically an outdoor music festival hosted by a local radio station called Cities 97. The concerts run for two nights and house over 18 top bands. It’s a time to sit outside, listen to some great music and enjoy a beer or two! Over the years we’ve had the pleasure of listening to bands like Weezer, Ingrid Michelson, Matt Nathanson (2x), Matt Kearney, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Fitz and the Tantrums, Train, Imagine Dragons, One Republic, Gin Blossoms, Ziggy Marley and so so so many more. It’s the highlight of my summer!
I couldn’t find a photo from every year, but here are some highlights from our 6 years attending this music festival:
2011- Apparently another year we didn’t take a photo lol (Michael Franti & Spearhead)
Basilica just happened this past weekend and I’m already ready for next year! All that’s left to do is keep listening to Cities 97 and speculate who will be here for our 7th year!
