Raucous and all kinds of free — as in spirit-wise, admission-wise and wheelin’-wise — this year’s Whiteaker Block Party on Saturday, Aug. 6, represented the only true and real and enduring soul of Eugene. Meaning, of course, the salutary and as yet un-co-opted community of beings who earnestly believe in art and purity and beer and loud music and, most of all, each other. This was the actual-factual celebration, and EW hit the streets to capture a sample of The Party’s on-the-street style.
