This past weekend Richard Branson’s Virgin Fest (V Fest) hit Toronto, Canada with the Foo Fighters and Oasis headlining Saturday and Sunday respectively. While Saturday’s show rocked non-violenty, Sunday had far different results. Noel Gallager, Oasis’s guitarist, was attacked by a fan who pushed him to the ground which proves my point that Canada hates Oasis. Here are two videos of the incident as well as videos from the other bands (Bloc Party, MGMT, Against Me!).
Bloc Party have their new album “Intimacy” coming out this Thursday as a digital download. The CD with extra songs will be out on October 27th. Here’s the tracklisting as well as some videos of some of the new songs.
5. Trojan Horse
7. One Month Off
9. Better Than Heaven
10. Ion Square
I went with a buddy of mine to see Bloc Party on Thursday night. It kicked ass. Longwave opened. They were alright. They used to have a popular song back in the day but they sound more indie now.. which probably helps them. Anyways, here’s the setlist thanks to Kevin from blocparty.net for the setlist.

At the Summercase Festival this weekend, Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols was involved in an altercation with Kele Okereke of Bloc Party and possibly some of the dudes from the Foals (who I’ve never heard of). I wasn’t there but I blame it on Rotten because he was a douche to me one time when I bumped into him in the Village. F U Johnny Rotten! Okereke allegedly asked Rotten about his old band Public Image Ltd (post Sex Pistols circa ’78) reuniting. Editor’s note: Old band names used to really suck Apparently, you don’t ask an old man about his old bands.
