Bloc Party was hot, Webster hall was not, NYC | Pics

Bloc Party @ Webster Hall

Despite all the Webster Hall controversy (mostly the temperature) yesterday, Wednesday (June 15th, 2005) night’s show reconfirmed why I love Bloc Party so much. I left Webster Hall drenched in sweat, but NOT from the temperature inside the club; From dancing. I was very comfortable in the club (note: the cold front that came to NYC on Wednesday obviously helped).

They only have one full length album, yet I feel like I watched a band playing all their hits. Every song is as exciting as the next. I’ve been listening to “Silent Alarm” for almost seven months, and I still love it. This was the sixth time I saw them live (I’m trying to break Cobra Snake’s record), and I’d probably rank it as the second best. Roxy ruled.

Highlights from the show in list format:
* Kele (singer) made a point to tell the crowd they were better than the night before (again)
* From where I was standing, the crowd was good
* They said they’d be back in September (Roseland? Hammerstein?)
* They kicked major ass
* They played TWO encores (4 songs, then 2 songs). Half the crowd was gone for the second one.
* They played two new songs. They were good.
* Kele & the Matt (drummer) both stage dove.
* Fireworks or something went off over the drums during the encore
* Kele dedicated a song to a singer of another band in attendance who helped them get started (hint: Franz Ferdinand…as also seen at Spoon in the same venue)
