Don’t forget the annual Night Out Against Crime is Tuesday night, and lots of neighbors will be blocking off their streets for block parties.
And the fifth annual Greenwoodstock music fest invites everyone to stop by their party at the 6th Avenue NW Pocket Park (known as Our Park) at 6th Ave. NW and NW 76th St. for hours of music, food and fun from 5-9:30 p.m. Bring your whole block party. The block from 76th to 77th will be closed off.

Bring along your beach blanket or folding chairs for an evening of fun together. The event is family, kids, pets, and neighbor friendly. Don’t forget your applause and smiles for the bands that have offered up their time and talents. Neighbor and caterer Tiberio Simone will be making his amazing pizzas again at the event. DJ “DR. B” will provide some hip tunes during this time (5-6 p.m.) as well as between the live bands.
6-7 p.m.: Pipers Creek Players – “Lovely classical music featuring Greenwood neighbors Rebecca Evans on cello, and Kirsten James on flute.”
7–8 p.m.: The Greenwood All*Stars – “These guys are a fun high energy rock band that play tight tunes and smokin’ jams. Pay close attention to their interesting lyrics; your laugh muscles will be glad you did. Dan Moore – drums, vocals (He’s a Greenwood guy); Pete Nice – guitar, vocals; Matt Norris– bass, vocals; Abe Ortiz – keyboards, vocals.”
8:15–9:30 p.m.: Banzai Surf – “A very lively three-piece surf band featuring “surf’s up” versions of popular TV and movie themes you will certainly recognize, along with many old surf standards. This is 1960’s Dance City – try out your best Go Go Dancer moves! Joe Jabon – surf guitar and reverb-reverb-reverb (Joe is imported from Ravenna), Joe Anderson – bass, Bob Merrihew– drums.”
