I saw Bloc Party at Avalon last night with my sister Eri and her boyfriend, and we were all very impressed by the band's performance. The lead singer has a very thick British accent and may be the only musician from England whose accent doesn't disappear when singing. They played for about an hour and a half, mostly stuff form their latest album Silent Alarm, including my favorite track "This Modern Love". It was an all ages show, so the place was crawling with teenybopper hipsters, but the beers lines were short. Speaking of short beer lines, I'm very hungover right now, due to the fact that after the show we met up with an old college friend of mine, Justin LaReau, who's in town for a conference. Many margaritas were consumed. If life were a poker game, and being hungover was equivalent to having a good hand, drinking lemon-lime gatorade would definitely be my tell.
