YAY IDIOTS!.

Or i should say YAY JERSEY IDIOTS.

Seriously if you bought a ticket to these shows you should feel ashamed and spend days trying to figure out where it all went wrong with your life. Then again you are probably too stupid to understand that anyway

I wish this was a better band, because it would be awesome to buy half-price tix on StubHub for day 1. Just not so awesome to justify listening to fucking Bloc Party.

^Umm maybe you should feel ashamed? Don't like them move on..you feel great and big insulting people on a blog. Must be a meaningful life!

Why do Jersey Kids love Bloc Party? Aren't they British? What did I miss other than the fact that people still care about them?

12:57 is the guy described by 12:54.

Jersey is an island off of England..I find it weird that all these people are traveling from Europe to see these shows in NYC when Bloc Party have so many shows in Europe this year! I know the Euro/Pound is strong but it makes no sense!

^^ Truly I hope you did not pat yourself on the back thinking you made such a witty comment.

bloc party shows are actually a lot of fun, they are good performers and the drummer is a fucking monster. haters gon' hate, as they say.

1:15 nope not in the slightest but I also don't think the assclowns are clever with their Jersey kids comments either. We are not in high school anymore...are we?

12:54 just moved to Williamsburg six months ago from South Dakota to be part of the "cool" music scene and already is trying to make witty comments about New Jersey. Little faux-hemian wannabe, trying to fit in as a "New Yorker." How cute.

1:25 Is that the best comeback you could come up with? Pretty pathetic. Look cheer up loser,it can't all be bad for you.

^ Simply stating the obvious made known to all by the things you are typing, my friend. Native NYers know that a vast number of people in northern Jersey are originally from the city, and moved out there to raise a family or for a job. You'll rarely find them making such unfounded, vitriolic comments about their neighbor state outside of the turnpike traffic.

You stink of transplant, and therefore have no authority to comment on the people in the Tri-State area. Sorry!

1:36 if you only knew how off base and clueless you really are.

I thought people from New Jersey liked 'oontz oontz oontz' house music? Hey, what do I know?

How is it possible that brooklynvegan commenters are more angry and stupid than YouTube commenters?

Posted by Anonymous | April 25, 2012 2:03 PM

^because the trolls are more obnoxious here?

Posted by Anonymous | April 25, 2012 2:05 PM

For the millionth time no one care about Native New Yorkers. No one. Get over it.

Jersey is stoked.

1:57, actually 12:54 hit the nail on the head exactly. You probably are in the category of the people being described.
