I love Bloc Party, great music, that for me combines the best of new electronic with classic indie.
~
Kele Okereke is the singer and rythm guitarist, bandmates are Russell Lissack -lead Guitar, Gordon
Moakes -Bass and Synth, and their drummer Matt Tong.

I loved “Silent Alarm”, “Weekend in The City” “Intimacy”. Looking forward to more great music
from Bloc Party.

These posters are must haves for any true Bloc Party fan.



Bloc Party’s stage setup was nothing more than four colored squares that resembled an Ellsworth Kelly painting mounted on a glowing blue and gray curtain. At around 9:15 p.m., lights started flashing and a few minutes later, the boys from Liverpool appeared. The two best fashion choices came from Okereke, who sported a white Smiths shirt and Matt Tong, who chose to drum wearing just jean shorts, sneakers and glasses.
The first quarter of the set was a bit slow, and besides old favorite “Hunting for Witches,” didn’t really get the crowd going. For the first five songs or so, Okereke spent a bit too much time alternating between swigs from his flask and his water bottle. During the lengthy breaks between songs though, I did notice some unexpected details: Okereke chewed gum; he’s incredibly muscular; and guitarist Russell Lissack had over a dozen pedals lined up in front of him.
Excitement kicked in right around “Banquet” and “Coliseum,” the ninth and tenth songs. Okereke finally settled on a guitar (he had used four different ones to play the first seven songs) and let loose. “We’re just starting to start,” he said at this point. “Hold on.”.
“Coliseum” sounded especially good, with a twangy backing guitar and more soulful tone to the lyrics than some of other more raw, alt-punk cuts. “Octopus,” which ended what Okereke called the “first half of the show,” also stood stood out. Okereke put down his guitar, grabbed onto his microphone and turned on a new sass in his voice and motions.
Bloc Party then left the stage– for what could be described as an intermission– and came thundering back with seven more songs. Okereke talked a bit about St. Louis, including the Delmar Ice Festival that had taken place earlier in the day. “We don’t have that,” bassist Gordon Moakes chimed in. “We’ve just got rain. Rain festival.”.
“Ares,” the first song of the first encore, was one of the best of the night. The whole night had a bit of a riot-like fire to it, but nothing sounded more like a protest than when the whole crowd joined Okereke to chant “War, war, war, war, I want to declare a war!”.

“One Month Off” and “I Still Remember,” two of Bloc Party’s biggest hits, weren’t played. I think it’s a testament to just how successful you are as a band when you can play 20 songs and have a list of 10 more that the crowd would have loved to hear.
Bloc Party seemed to realize its success, too. Okereke introduced the band as “the world famous rock band, Bloc Party.” Later, he thanked us for spending our Saturday night with his “internationally renowned rock band.” I couldn’t tell if he was joking, but either way it was one more piece of evidence that Mr. Okereke knows he’s a rock star.
