To be honest, we purposely drug our feet on the show announcements this week. Usually we blog ‘em here Friday, but I couldn’t bring myself to tell you all we’ve got is Kenny Loggins and NOFX.
My patience was rewarded, as Bloc Party was (kinda) announced for December 14 over the weekend.
So, yeah, nothing on the local sites yet, but I heard about it from a promoter at the Faint show, so this info should be gold. Anyway, here’s a live Bloc Party video an the rest of your show announcements. Read on if you want to see a cool video OR know when The Log Man cometh.
