The Bloc Party Giveaway
If you’re a Bloc Party fan, chances are you’ve been hooked since their 2005 debut, Silent Alarm, which was met with critical acclaim, accolades galore, and platinum status, solidifying their position as a powerful force in the indie music world. For us, that entire album from start to finish was perfection and we sometimes forget they’ve released anything past that. We never thought we’d see the day when Bloc Party would be headlining Mr. Smalls, but the tour Gods have smiled upon our fair city and graced us with their presence June 1 as part of the venue’s series of 10th Anniversary shows. This one’s our fave on the list for sure.
Don’t expect to hear an array of Silent Alarm fan favorites if you’re attending the June 1 show. Bloc Party’s sound has shifted since their first album, and has traded a raw sound for a more layered, complex production that embraced the use of strings. They’ve managed to take an electronic direction with their later albums as well, citing Siouxsie and the Banshees as their inspiration for incorporating a brass section, in addition to including drum beats and loops and vocal manipulation, particularly on their third album, Intimacy.
Now that we’ve got you properly excited for their upcoming gig at Mr. Smalls, you can try your hand at our giveaway, the third in our series of 10th Anniversary celebrations. Simply follow the Rafflecopter instructions below for your chance to win. We’ll notify a winner via e-mail and they’ll have 24 hours to respond. No will call switches will be permitted. This show is not optional, it’s mandatory!
