When the people behind Capitol Hill Block Party decide to go big, they go big in a hurry. Not only has the two-day indie and rock music fest expanded to three days for the first time ever, they’ve convinced both MGMT and Jack White’s supergroup Dead Weather to play. Small venue, big bands? Yes, please. Single-day tickets ($23) go on sale June 4, but three-day passes ($60) are available now.
