Hey, Power, did they play 'Ion Square'? I never heard that one live and it's my favorite off Intimacy. Also, I'm sad they seem to have stopped playing 'I Still Remember', it took me a while to get into that song, but now I just think it's sheer pop-rock perfection and I think they've only played it 2 out of the 7 times I've seen them.

I'm actually wearing a "God Bless Bloc Party" t-shirt under my work required "collared with buttons" shirt today, if you all can believe such a thing.

Also, while stopped at a red light on the way to work today, I looked over at a gas station and sang in my head, "The price of gas keeps on rising". That's a fact.

Sorry I keep getting your name wrong, Powerhorse.

He's just lucky no one has been calling him Powerwhore yet, as you know that's coming.


I just listened to Ion Square in your honor, Fitz.

Whore? That's not very nice

Also, no I was disappointed they didn't play Ion Square, even with two encores. They also didn't play Signs. I'll try and find the setlist. I was surprised by some of what got pulled out, like Price of Gasoline.

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

they might as well have put in the place with seats the lyons people were threatening. that HOB is ridiculous. you know that scene in gangs of ny when they pan around the tenements and show all people there? that's what the balconies reminded me of, if you look, panning around from the floor. freaky.

^ , that's a pretty great comparison, but its not quite that bad. I love that movie though.

I was having a discussion earlier as to whether or not Avalon was actually torn down, I thought that was the plan, and someone told me they saw the site when it was levelled (I wasn't around much while the new place was under construction) but damn it seems identical to Avalon on the first floor, the stage is a little bigger and it does seem a bit wider but that could just be a two year absence skewing my memory. If it isn't the same structure, they borrowed the plans.

I was excited for it to be its own unique place, it was going to be Landsdowne Street Music Hall, that would be something uniquely Boston. I don't mind the chain (and actually it did originate in Cambridge), their restaurants are usually pretty fun for what they are (I'd never been to one of their concert halls before, this is the biggest one to date), and I guess their clout probably helps with booking. Oh well, they've got some pretty good shows lined up, I just wish they weren't such anti-camera zealots.

There's a hole in their tour schedule around U2's NA leg... someone needs to connect these bands.

It sounds like Ion Square hasn't been played very often so far.
