Capitol Hill Block Party This year’s Capitol Hill Block Party will be one for the books thanks to tons of local rock and hiphop (Sandrider! Don’t Talk to the Cops! Absolute Monarchs! Fly Moon Royalty!) and an impressive array of national talent (Cloud Nothings! Grimes! Neko Case!). Aside from the music, this festival is also trying to make itself more neighborhood-friendly by featuring work from local visual artists and even free yoga. Yup, at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, you can stretch it out in the middle of the street with yoga instructor Gary Smith of Partman Parthorse. Weird! (Pike St and 12th Ave, $30 per day/$85 three-day pass, some stages all ages, July 20–22)

ByDesign Film Series 12, July 20-22: Northwest Film Forum’s annual celebration of the marriage of design and the moving image features everything from short-film showcases to a guided tour of split-screen techniques to documentaries about great designers and New York’s “motion graphics industry.” Tonight brings Taken by Storm: The Art of Storm Thorgerson and Hipgnosis, chronicling the life and work of the man who designed the cover of Dark Side of the Moon. Tomorrow brings Visions of Future Spaces in Films, wherein Stranger staffer Charles Mudede holds forth on the futuristic architecture presented in 2001, Blade Runner, Gattaca, and others.
