>BLOC PARTY
LONDON, VIRGIN MEGASTORE: 14.02.05

This was an amazing set, these guys did well to raise money for the Tsumani Fund. I had friends get there at
6.45am and save me a place at the front. When I arrived at 7.50 the line was already at MacDonalds, and by the time the store opened, it went around the corner towards the other enterance. People were running to buy the tickets and I nearly got tripped up to get mine. People were alrady lining up before 4.30 to get at the front of the performance.

Bloc Party played 9 songs including 'Banquet', 'So here we are', 'Little thoughts', 'Positive Tension', 'Helicopter' & 'This Modern Love'. I cant remember the rest. The crush was quite bad before

 

Bloc Party came on. When they came onstage at 6.15pm everyone went nuts, and Bloc Party seemed to be genunily warmed by the reception they had gotten. These guys seem like the stage is where they were meant to

be. After a wonderful preformance by all of Bloc Party Kele comes offstage and plays to the front row.

I must say Bloc Party are a group of very cool guys who know how to treat their fans right. Fans during the signing are consently being told to 'move on' by sercurity because they are having conversation with Matt, Kele, Russell and Gordy.
