I was about fourth row when I saw them I love to be at the front... When I'm at the back I only can see the concert on the big screans and it's not as good...
I was never in the first row, that must be awsome, but I was on the second one at a Franz Ferdinand show. And wow!

Between, I con't stop listening to Song for Clay... I'm addicted...

IT's all GA. It is set up like a "show" at a H.S. cafeteria....they move out all of the tables and set up chairs (at least they did for Sufjan). Not an ideal set-up for a show. I am hoping they do not have the chairs knowing that Bloc Party is WAY more of a "get your ass out of your chair and dance" band compared to Sufjan.

I will hopefully not strangle any concert goers...the Indy crowds talk entirely too much at shows.

Bloc Party will be doing some DJ sets in some of our favorite record stores across the country on this upcoming tour. Keep checking back for more info, but here are the first two:

September 11, 2007 @ 6pm
Atomic Records
1813 E. Locust Street
Milwukee, WI

September 12, 2007 @ 6pm
Luna Music Midtown
52nd and College
Indianapolis, IN

These aren't anywhere NEAR me, but they might be somewhere near some other Blocheads.

Enjoy!

:Hmm: Interesting. I'm travelling down to Toronto to see them in a month and hopefully they'll be DJing at record store there.

Whoa cool! I gotta think of the best way to go about this though, as I'd like to be in front for GA... also what does this mean exactly? i mean will they be actually there in the record store or just picking the set? because the former would definitely make me go

why does wednesday have to be my busy day though >_<

Pshhh, if they want to come to a record store it's all about Newbury Comics.

Should I go see them again . . . for a 3rd time this year???


They're playing this Detour Festival on the streets of Los Angeles. It just one day, all day long. They're the headliners.

The thing is, I'm not too keen on any of the other artists playing:

Bloc Party
Justice
Satellite Party
Kinky
Comedians of Comedy
Turbonegro
Teddybears
Moving Units
The Raveonettes
Shout Out Louds
Autolux
Celebrity Skin
The Aliens
Aggrolites
Busy P
DJ Mehdi
Sebastian
Kavinsky
So Me
Noisettes
Cool Kids
The Deadly Syndrome
Scissors for Lefty
Johnossi
Augie March
Nico Vega
Franki Chan
Travis Keller
Bruce Perdew

And I've already seen them twice this year.

And the second time I saw them was one of the Top 5 concerts of my entire life.

And I don't know how long they will play in such a festival.

And it probably won't live up to the glory of the second show.

But there was a tee-shirt I really wanted that I never got to buy.

And it is Bloc Party.

I'm so confused.

I say go. You'll definitely have a good time seiing Bloc Party again, and, as a bonus, you discover some great music that you wouldn't have otherwise.

newww ablum nooz frum Blog Party:

Quote:
Paste: What did you do during your short break before your Chicago date tomorrow?

MT: A bit of recording. We're having a go at a new track, which we're sort of writing as I speak. I can't offer anything other than that - it's a secret. Also, we're still writing it.

Paste: Got any tricks up your sleeve for your new material?

MT: Tricks? I hope so. I think our new stuff is going to be a lot less textured than the last record. I think the third studio incarnation of Bloc is going to be a bit like the rawer earlier Bloc, but with experience.
and

Quote:
Speaking to NME.com yesterday at the Reading Festival, Gordy has confirmed that Bloc Party are already working on new material for the third album! They spent the past week rehearsing a dozen new tracks in London and will head into the studio tomorrow to do some preliminary recording with Jacknife Lee, producer of 'A Weekend In The City'. There's talk of a brand new single this year, but this will depend on how much progress they make next week. Either way, the band are definitely eager to keep their creative output ticking over.

Speaking of shows...I guess they are going to be at the Luna store on College Ave. all day on wed. doing DJ sets.

Too bad I am now missing the show due to a trip to Minneapolis.

Talk of a third album makes me extremely happy, I was trying not to let myself anticipate because I didn't think we'd see it for years...we probably still won't but this is good news.
