Kele Okereke of Bloc Party @ Terminal 5 in 2009 (NYC) (more by Faith-Ann Young)
Bloc Party are hard at work on the follow up to 2008's excellent Intimacy and will make their return to the road this summer. As announced, their current string of dates includes a performance on Saturday (August 4) of Lollapalooza 2012.
BP frontman Kele Okereke released his debut solo EP, The Boxer, in 2010. He followed that up with The Hunter in 2011, which continued his interesting blend of house and downtempo/ambient music. Kele will be visiting Chicago's The Mid on May 17 to perform a DJ set. Advance tickets are on sale and this date seems to be a one-off.
