Bloc Party at the o2 Academy, Birmingham
For those of you that read my missives you will know I help organise Birmingham Live! Well sometimes I remember to organise a gig for me to shoot too. Not part of my original plan but the chance to shoot Bloc Party playing Silent Alarm at the o2 Academy on Saturday night was too good to miss.
Silent Alarm is a great album, to be played in full on a summer Saturday to packed academy crowd, nice one. The supports were Liz Lawrence (I really liked her and will be checking out more of her stuff) and whenyoung who are definitely worth catching and our reviewer will have a lot to say about them.
Bloc Party exceeded every expectation I had. A great live performance and both testing and dynamic lighting.
A perfect example of how to deliver a legacy album to a live crowd.
