[Photos] Bloc Party @ 9:30 Club

I wrote up a quickie review on DCist earlier int he week, but here are a few other thoughts on the Bloc Party show from Sunday.

  • It was way sold out. Shoulder to shoulder all the way to the back of the venue.
  • They didn’t play “Waiting for the 7.18” Boo!
  • “Ion Square” was pretty mind-blowing. The slinky keyboards from Gordon provided a nice respite from a very guitar heavy set. Definitely my new fave song.
  • The seamless segue from “Song for Clay (Disappear Here) into “Banquet” was pretty awesome.
  • Best lighting and best sound I’ve experienced from a 9:30 show in a long time.
  • I love it when headliners go on before 9:30. We stayed through the firt encore and still got home a little after 11. Yes, I’m old.
