anyway, the relavent part of this was: other point the thing i was reading made was that everything since silent alarm was crap.

i didn't like it. but oddly enough, the street dogs song that supposedly rips it off is one of two of their songs i don't like either.

I absolutely love that video, way to mess up Harryhausen's innocent animations.

BTW last night was amazing, the sound is about the only thing that was improved in the transition from Avalon to House of Blues but Bloc was excellent

I'm pretty sure he means Boston. At least I'm assuming he means Boston. I'm also assuming Powerhourhouse is a he.

Ahhh, ok. Because L.A. also has an Avalon and a House of Blues, and I thought Bloc were supposed to be playing The Palladium in L.A. on April 15th. I still don't have a ticket. I've seen them 7 times, so I'm really having a hard time justifying spending money to go for an 8th time.

The idea of you NOT going to a Bloc Party show is frightening and disturbing, Fitz. I think you should go just to avoid freaking us all out.

Haha, no I was talking about Boston. The Avalon used to be a club in Boston which was closed in 2007 to be redone, and opened last month as the biggest House of Blues to date.

Your assumption about my gender was right, but once again there's no 'house' in my username haha.

Also, anyone have any good sites for Bloc Party bootlegs? I can't find any recent ones. I wish I could find an audio rip of "Live and Intimate".
