Block Party // Treats!

This weekend has been long awaited by we Chinqua-heads along with many others. This Saturday, April 21st marks Community Records’ 5th annual Block Party, an all day & night DIY music festival on Clio St. near Lee Circle.

This year, 26 bands will be featured on the linuep, with five Chinquapin Records-affiliated artists included in the festivities (Glish, Caddywhompus, Habitat, Dominique LeJeune, and Choi Wolf).

The show is all ages and there are a lot of incentives to lower your ticket price or help out people in need if that’s what you’re into.

National headliners include Mustard Plug, Stuck Lucky, Good Luck, A Billion Ernies, and our good Houston friend B_L_A_C_K_I_E.

The fun doesn’t stop (or start) there, as we are about to dive into a weekend of pre and post Block Party shows, highlighting, but not limited to a Chinquapin Records after party at the Circle Bar (starting after Block Party, featuring another Houston outfit, The Tontons, among others) and a 4/20 Sun Hotel pool party w&&d show at Ampersand.

Check out all the pre and post events associated with the fest RIGHT HERE.

In case you couldn’t tell that we’re mad stoked about this whole music feeding frenzy, we wanted to make it perfectly clear.

We’ve compiled a new batch of TREATS (snack-sized digital downloads) which feature some music from a few of the artists who are a part of this cray cray tornado of a weekend.

Enjoy the tunes and we hope to see you out there sweatin’ and groovin’ the weekend away.

  • About Chinquapin

    Chinquapin Records is a cooperative of artists and advocates formed late 2010 in New Orleans, LA. Though the name is still young, the community that it represents has been sharing and caring since we first fell in love with each other's music. Chinquapin Records seeks to be an outlet for sharing the music we make and the music we love.
