{Bloc Party}

I caught Bloc Party's sold out show at The Wiltern in L.A. last night and I was impressed at how much this band has grown in the last couple of years. I was in the front standing area and had a great view of Final Fantasy's (aka Owen Pallett) skillfull on-the-spot looping, but my view was slightly obstructed once Bloc Party took to the stage as the place quickly began to fill. Their sound was tight and loud (next time I need to remeber to bring my ear plugs) as they played a mixed bag of tracks off both their albums.

Above is Bloc party's very first televised appearrance (performing "Hellicopter") on Jools Holland.

The Orange County Register wrote a mixed review titled 'Better, but still far from great' from monday night's performance at The Wiltern...read it here.
