The Paramount. The initial email came from a Capitol Hill Block Party representative, so I'm guessing I was on some mailing list of theirs. Unfortunately I have no idea how anyone else would go about getting the invite.

I got one too! it's a masquerade ball and they want everyone to "dress to impress" / reserve the right to refuse your entry if you're not dressed "fashionably". So, the takeaway there is ...don't wear your dick shirt.
Sled Island night one was great! Highlights were Victories: A female two piece where the drummer played the drums, keyboard and sang at the same time. They also sang about masturbating a lot. Good times. Also, Chains of Love were excellent. The female singer played the ever living fuck out of the tambourine. It was awesome.
Tonight I'm looking at checking out: Unkown Mortal Orchestra, Swans (not really my thing....but I think I'm going to have to check out at least a bit of it), Colin Stetson, Iceberg Ferg and who knows what else! Sled Island!

Fucking rights! Beginning my Sled Island voyage at Palomino with Saskatchewan heavy rockers Black Thunder before heading to Dickens to have my fucking face melted by SWANS! Then, possibly, off to The Legion for Iceage.
I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.
