A little birdy told me the suprise guest is the Halo Benders.

Good news!

Halo Benders are working out songs for their suprise headlining spot! All those Tina’s and Todd’s in the crowd are gonna drop their Stellas when Calvin unloads some serious science on them.

“Rippin off jocks, flippin’ off cops, sippin’ on toxic rocket fuel … FREEDOM RIDERS!”

I also heard that Calvin is seriously excited by the chance to play a festival sponsored by Miller Brewing. Everyone who knows anything knows Calvin is a serious Miller Light drinker.

This is going to be amazing!

Hi guys, Calvin here. I can't confirm or deny these rumors at this point in time. Know this, Doug and I are working on new material and we've been practicing a bit. We hope you will hold tight until we meet with the people of Miller Brewing to ensure that IF the Halo Benders do decide to play we will be rewarded with a Halo Bender's tune in the new Miller Genuine Draft ad campaign.

I hope you can be patient with us,

yawn. I saw the Halo Benders with Gas Huffer at the block party in '98! (My highlight was the burned-out hippie smoking a joint on the street wearing cutoff jeans that his balls were totally hanging out of)

I heard that this year capitol hill block party is the festival version of ripping out the stuffing of your childhood teddy bear to make a trendy satchel.

actually the secret band is called "C.H.A.-C.H.A" aka Capitol Hill Alliance (of) Crappy Hipster Allstars. It's all the shitty bands The Stranger writes about combined into one super fraggle fest. Get out the tear gas.
