Bloc PartyYes, the rumors are true. Bloc Party has cancelled their shows at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, First Avenue show in Minneapolis, and The Pageant in St. Louis. According to the bands website, “We’ve been forced to cancel our Ultra Music Festival performance. Unfortunately, Kele has contracted viral pharyngitis and is unable to perform today at the Ultra Music Festival in beautiful Miami, FL. We send our heartfelt apologies to all our fans and the Ultra Music Festival organizers. We hope to return to Miami, FL, at our earliest opportunity [and] had to cancel our shows in Minneapolis, MN, and St. Louis, MO.

Bloc PartyAbout time Bloc Party brings the party to the block of N. 1st & W.7th. According to staff writer, Alexandera M. Svokos of Popsense.com, wrote, “The crowd erupted as the band took the stage and confidently began their set…playing both new and old favorites…the audience jumped, screamed, and danced around, fists pumping in the air…” at Terminal 5 in New York City on March 25th. I have no doubt that long-time, loyal-fans of earlier albums Silent Alarm & Weekend in the City and new fans of their album Intimacy, will be energetically involved with wide-eyes, dancing feet, and blissful smiles. I, for one, will be taking party in this debauchery of heavy delayed guitars, perfectly melded with electric synths.
