    They're touring now. Newish album.

    I think "Flux" is a really good track. Am I an asshole?

    I saw Bloc Party a few years ago at the Wiltern and you could tell a bunch of kids were there for there first concert ever and they were going insane for Bloc Party like the old footage of the Beatles....

    it was a decent show, but the crowd reaction was slightly disproportionate

    Probably not, it takes a lot for the Gargoyle to sell out

    Girl Talk sold it out. I saw Ratatat there and it stunk like ass and fear in that place.

    I was at Ratatat! Such a good show despite the cramming. I think you should still be fine with Cut Copy. Check it out soon I guess

    I think their new album has them going in the right direction again. it should have been the follow up to silent alarm as opposed to weekend in the city, imo a softmore slump

    2013 = 12 Coachellas

    do it do it do it do it do it do it do it now! say it say it say it say it say it say it say it now!

    All kinds of weird stuff going on with this band right now. That debut still holds up for me, and I'm holding out hope that these guys can get it together.
