Block Party I Totally Called It

I promise, I had no influence on the outcome, but hooray for PWRFL Power, the First Block Star Winner!
From the press release:
Friday June 15 was the first annual Capitol Hill Block Party “Block Star” band contest. 8 judges listened to 8 bands perform 2 songs each. Close to 300 people came through Seattle’s Vera Project to support their favorite bands. The 8 finalists raised the bar for the normal band contest and Seattle is definitely blessed with a great group of bands doing an incredible variety of music. This night featured everything from nerd-core hip hop to stoner rock to power pop. But one performer really stood out - PWRFL Power, and he is the 2007 Block Star winner. PWRFL Power is fresh. Weird. Charming. He performs intimate, sweet bizarre songs mixed with great acoustic guitar work.
PWRFL Power moved to Seattle from Japan in 2003, and he’s a very special musician. He took the stage with just his acoustic guitar, and by the middle of his second song he had won over the entire audience. I fully recommend you get to The Block Party by 2pm on July 28 to catch PWRFL Power perform on the mainstage. In the meantime, check him out at his Band Page , though the only way to really get him is to see him live.
Yay for Kaz!
