After the three-year hiatus, the Hideout Block Party makes a triumphant return, marking the venue's 21st birthday and two other auspicious anniversaries. On Saturday, September 23, the festival will revolve around the 60th anniversary of the launch of Soviet satellite Sputnik, with performances from 75 Dollar Bill, Antietam, Skull Orchard, Eleventh Dream Day and Yo La Tengo alter-ego Condo Fucks (all featuring members born in 1957, when Sputnik took flight). On Sunday, September 24, local recording studio Electrical Audio commemorates its 20th year, with an afternoon of sets from Danielson, Nina Natasia, Screaming Females, Man or Astro-Man?, Meat Wave, Shannon Wright, Pinebender, FACS and Mint Mile. Proceeds from the event support local music education non-profit Foundations of Music.
