BREAKING NEWS: Bloc Party On Sale This Weekend
I'm beside myself with glee! By far my favorite performance at Coachella, and a large part of why I bought the plane ticket to Cali in the first place, Bloc Party are heading back to do a proper North American tour! Finally I'll get to see them play a full-length headlining gig! Don't get me wrong, the beating down desert sun was an unforgettable way to see a quartet of my fave Brit musicians literally sweating it out to give us their all. But it was just way too short a set to be truly satisfying. I want more, dammit!
