"Hotly tipped U.K. rock act Bloc Party has signed to Vice, which will release its full-length debut, "Silent Alarm," on March 22. The group made a big splash this fall with its self-titled Dim Mak EP, led by the single "Banquet.""

My initial reaction: 2005 is going to be the year of the Bloc Party. (translation: the album is REALLY REALLY GOOD)
Paul (The Rub) has also posted one track for download.
The Bloc Party show at Tribeca Grand wasn't as good as the one at Knitting Factory 2 nights earlier. Maybe because Knitting Factory was their first U.S. show ever. Maybe because Knitting Factory is a better venue. Maybe because they were tired from 3 nights of partying and playing in the U.S.A. (Philly the night before) Maybe because they didn't go on until two hours after they were advertised to go on. Maybe because most people had to wait on a long line to get into this 'free' party. Maybe you don't agree. Anyway, they still rocked...short set or not.
Rumor: Bloc Party signed to a major U.S. label @ Tribeca Grand.
Here are some pictures from this event (2 October 2004).

Bloc Party is playing the Tribeca Grand Hotel on 10/2. I guess that's to make up for the show that was supposed to be at the now closed Filter 14.
A.R.E. Weapons are headlining (???) the Bloc Party show at Knitting Factory.

And while you're at Ticketweb, you can also now pick up tickets for Bloc Party at Knitting Factory.

The first two Pixies show sold out in negative ten seconds. I didn't get tickets. :(
I did get some tickets for the second Wilco show at Radio City though. I think tickets are still available.
Why are Bloc Party tickets still not on sale?
