CONTEST – Bloc Party @ The Docks – September 28, 2007
It’s a peculiar bit of coincidence that Bloc Party always seems to come to town a week after I see them in Texas. First back in March after SxSW and now this coming Friday after after ACL. And while they’ve put on great shows both times I’ve seen ’em this year, it does take some of the urgency out of needing to see them again. Add in the fact that this week’s show has been moved from the Ricoh Coliseum to The Docks – a venue I hate only slightly less than Indiana Jones hates snakes. And since I don’t believe I’m being faced with a choice between either going to the Docks or being hunted down by angry, spear-wielding natives, I’m going to opt to pass on this show and go see Bat For Lashes at the El Mocambo instead.
But this isn’t about me, this is about you. Maybe you love Bloc Party more than a fat kid loves Smarties, and no venue can keep you away… well then I’d be tempted to ask why you don’t already have tickets but I won’t. Instead, I will offer – courtesy of Vice Records – one pair of passes to this Friday’s show, which also features Smoosh and Deerhoof. To enter, leave me a comment with your email address and a description of what your idea of a perfect “Weekend In The City” would be. Please keep it PG, though. This is a family site.
Contest closes at midnight, September 25 (Tuesday night).
