Solid band that hasn't played Coachella since 2006. They've got a new album out, and although it's no Silent Alarm, I like it and could easily see them as a sub-headliner in the Bon Iver/Shins slot on Saturday.

They'll probably be there but they were mediocre as fuck at Outside Lands. I love their first album. Maybe if I was really close I'd have had a good time but they were so flat.

I got that impression too, they should've had Sutro stage, it was way too packed where they were. Plus, Kele was wearing basketball shorts during the set, so I figured he gave zero fucks about their performance.

I imagine it was just hot.

Kele always dresses down during his performances. He just likes to be comfortable. Bloc Party is my favorite band EVER but they do leave a lot to be desired live and if I wasn't the huge fan I am I could see why one wouldn't be enjoyed.

Maybe for them, but the whole fest was drenched in fog in the low 50's. It was pretty nippy IMO.

There is no such thing as heat in August in SF.

I'd catch em if they weren't conflicting with anything.

I really enjoyed them at Hard this year. They had a tiny crowd due to the audience that Hard attracts.

I'd like a chance to see their full set live, I skipped out on the second half of it for Stevie Wonder at OSL.

Stevie was on my "people to see before they die" list.

They're on hiatus again. Don't expect to see 'em anytime too soon.
