I'd buy anybody's Stereolab ticket if they needed to unload it.

Just bought tickets to Rachmaninoff's Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom at the National Cathedral on Sunday and I'm quite chuffed.
Just saw Rachmaninoff’s #1 on Saturday. Very nice pairing with Tchaikovsky’s Pathetique.

Don't these bands get sick of playing the same old hits for hundreds of years?

Thinking of buying a ticket to see Duster at BC. Anyone seen them before?

Prediction: will not sell out and/or there will be a major stubhub dump at showtime.

No idea about that. Just that The Anthem is huge.

Can anyone confirm if their live show is lame? I came close to buying a ticket yesterday.

 Can't say I'm a fan of Bloc Party or have seen them live but don't listen to Vas.  He's a contrarian with bad taste in music.

If you like the band, go see them! You'll have fun! Ignore the naysayers!

Anyone have additional input? I came close to buying a ticket yesterday. Will hold off going if this is the consensus.

Bloc Party were fun when I saw them at the club back in 2008. Line-up shift since then but I bet it will still be fun. Silent Alarm is a great album. I just can't afford the tickets right now.

Can't speak to the current iteration of Bloc Party (or really the band anytime post the tour for the 3rd LP) but they have been at least a "B" all three times I've seen them.

Was supposed to see them back at the Patriot Center a decade or so ago. Dropped off after A Weekend in the City.

Not sure I agree with your rationale, nkotb. Interpol is a top 10 favorite band for me and I was very bored both of the times I caught them. And one of the shows was during their Turn Off The Bright Lights anniversary tour! I avoided their Anthem show because of those experiences.

Well sure, I dont' mean to suffer through it if you know its bad. But it sounds like you've never seen them before, so if you like them, why not try it?  If you do want recommendations, though, Vas likes to say everything is bad.
