Bloc Party

So I went to see Cut Copy the other night which I might add was an awesome show...Now so far I haven't seen a bad show while I've been here but there was something about Bloc Party tonight that blew me away. Despite the two ridiculous inconsiderate girls that decided they would use my shoes as their dance floor and jump up and down without ever stopping....yeah despite that, it was an absolutely phenomenal show. Kele Okereke is the lead singer and his british accent provides an amazing sound companied with guitars and drums. I've listened to Bloc Party for quite some time now, but never considered them to be one of my favorite bands. It was just another album that I came across every once in a while and listened to some tracks, knew some words, some melodies and that was about it. But this past week I've been listening to their stuff a lot so I could familiarize myself with it before I went. Their albums don't hold a candle to the live versions. Some of the songs gave me chills (and it felt like it was 90 degrees in there) and I found myself jumping up and down to almost every song they played. I wish I could write a more in-depth review but I just don't know what else to say besides you should go see them play if you can. Amazing.

Here is the lyrics to the last part of the video that I'll post later.

We've got crosses on our eyes
Been walking into the walls again
We've got crosses on our eyes
Been walking into the furniture
We've got crosses on our eyes
For richer, for poorer, for better, for worse
We've got crosses on our eyes
We've been walking into the furniture
