The Capitol Hill Times
Maureen is in a rut. Her life, like her house, is drab, if not chillingly eerie. But when something catches her eye – a surreal image? A portal? – through an open cupboard door, Maureen is compelled to seek out this warm and familiar place. Her journey through a series of fantastical and surreal experiences is the subject of the dialogue-less short film currently shooting on Capitol Hill. “Maureen” is the first project from newly formed Seattle production outfit Bow and Lyre. Anna Conser and Kara Schoonmaker, two 27-year-old Seattle natives, founded the non-profit last year in anticipation of their first major project. Schoonmaker calls the film a zero-budget production, even though some costs were inevitable. After purchasing some gear, the duo plan to spend $3,000 on the entire project.

Earlier this year, Capitol Hill’s largest music venue, Neumos, announced its plans to create a new stage to feature smaller acts and more intimate performances.  A new venue dubbed The Barboza is set to open in the lower level of the Pike/Pine hotspot April 18th and will include a new performance area and full-service bar.  With the first two shows sold out and a steady list of upcoming performances, The Barboza looks like a promising new addition to the Seattle nightlife scene.

Seattle’s beloved Capitol Hill Block Party will predictably return the summer of 2012. The organizers of the music festival recently posted the 2012 promotional video. Visually representing the festival in all its glory, the promo clearly illustrates the medley of musicians who perform. The dynamic video features footage from previous concerts, with artist’s genres ranging from techno to folk to rock and roll. The 3-day festival will occupy the Pike/Pine corridor of Capitol Hill in July of next year, with a lineup soon to be announced.
