Bloc Party @ 9:30 Club

The brilliant Bloc Party is returning from a hiatus with a fourth album and an extensive tour!  They will be playing 2 nights at the 9:30 Club, and I've elected to go on Sunday the 16th of September and put it out there as a meetup.

With such intense and passionate songs such as "Banquet", "The Prayer" and "Mercury", Bloc Party have consistently been at the top of the indie/post punk revival scene of the 21st century.

 

A few of us will be going to the Brixton, a newer British gastropub type place near the 9:30 Club at 4pm for dinner beforehand.  It's at 901 U street NW.  If you can't find us either at the restaurant or at the club, my number is[masked]-2208.

    The band put on a fantastic show, and it was great to hang out and chat with everyone beforehand.

  • DMtrekker

    I'll be at Duffy around 5

  • Mike M

    I should be at Duffy's around 4:15. My cell phone is out of energy, so Jeremy will have to be the point of contact.

    It's looking like the backbar area idea is out. I'm not sure anymore if they let those in the backbar into the main venue area early. We'll likely wander over to get in the main line a bit before doors open.

    Duffy's is just across 9th st from 9:30 Club. It's at the intersection of Vermont and 9th NW. It's looking like I'll be there closer to 4:30.

    Hey, does anyone need a free parking pass for the 9:30? I'm taking the metro in so I don't need it.

    September 16, 2012

  • Chip

    Where's Duffy's? And I'm Kim's +1...

    September 16, 2012

  • Anand

    Sorry guys, I'm going to have to skip the dinner part. Are you guys going to be at the back bar from 5:30 onwards?

    Turns out that the Brixton's kitchen is closed from 3 to 5. How about we just meet at Duffy's at 4 for an early dinner?

    September 16, 2012

  • Mike M

    So I'm counting seven people for dinner: me, Jeremy, Kim and guest, Marinel, Chip, and maybe Anand. I'll call for a reservation.

    September 16, 2012

  • Jeremy

    I'm definitely in for dinner. 4pm is perfect.

    September 16, 2012

  • Jennifer

    looks like we'll be arriving towards 6:30. I'll find y'all at the 9:30.

    September 14, 2012

  • Chip

    I'll be there...

    September 14, 2012

  • Mike M

    People who are interested in dinner: how does 4pm sound? If we eat early, we can join Jeremy and get in line early for prime positioning on the floor.

    • Kim

      Hi Mike - works for me.

      September 14, 2012

    • Anand

      I might be able to join for dinner. Will confirm earlier in the day on Sunday.
