Bastille Day Block Party announces 2014 lineup

The 12th annual Bastille Day Block Party returns to Barbette this July with one of the strongest local music lineups of the summer ahead.

Among the performers at the free event set for Sunday, July 13, will be Black Diet (above), the rock and soul combo who have come into their own during the past few months.

Filling out the bill will be newcomers Hippo Campus, who bring an upbeat Vampire Weekend-y sound for that summer tingle all over your body, plus Lizzo's hip-hop crew GRRRL PRTY, the new-album-toting Heiruspecs, the always furious live show of the Cloak Ox, and many more.
