Just got back from their show. Epic fucking concert, that's all I have to say. One of the best I've EVER seen (U2 included) and definitely the concert of the year thus far for me. The crowd was so into it, it was incredible. The band was spot on and they seemed to be having a good time on stage. Everything clicked tonight, which was great since it was the last night of the tour.

There was not one slow song tonight, they just tore through the set and it was so intense. I was kind of hoping for SXRT, but wasn't disappointed since the show was so good.

I also met the band after the show. They're super nice and very down to earth. They thanked me profusely when I complimented their performance. They were also slightly intoxicated, Kelé with a bottle of Heineken and Matt with wine. I had my photo taken with Kelé and Matt. Actually, Matt told me he didn't think he smiled in the photo (he was right) so he asked for a retake. Amazing!

And, Fitz, I told Matt "Fitz says hello." He looked at me quizzically (it could have been the alcohol, too) and he said, "Oh...um, tell him I said hello, too.

I thought you'd like that.

I saw The Raconteurs at the same venue this summer, and just happened to bump into them after the show (all except Jack White) as I was walking behind the building.

When the Bloc Party show ended, I was walking down to the subway station when it dawned on me that the band could there as well. And, 30 minutes later, they came out. It wasn't that long a wait, as I spent some time talking to the opening act, Holy Fuck, as they were loading up their Caravan. They were also very good, by the way.

As I said before, Kelé, Matt, and Russell were very gracious and hung around and talked to the few that had waited.

While waiting by the stairs someone on the crew walked by and offered me a hit of his joint, which I refused, because I was taken off guard by his offer.

Hi guys.

Just wanted to bump this thread because I brought Silent Alarm. Joining the party a little late I know. I heard This Modern Love on How I Met Your Mother yonks ago and loved it, and had some extra cash, so picked it up.

I won't say it blew me away as I listened all the way through last night, but it was pretty goddamn good. They're not what I was expecting, a bit harder than I thought, but that's cool. Some awesome tracks on there. Like Eating Glass is fantasmic, though the last verse brings it down a bit. Positive Tension got off to a bit of a sucky start, and the stop-starting isn't so great, but man oh man what a finish. Can't remember the individual songs off the top of my head much though.

My only complaints were that it all had a bit of sameness about it, the guitar and the guitar style is quite similar on a lot of songs, and there's a lot of lyric repition.But I am nitpicking, and it's a top album
