I was going to do a post on who to look out for at Daisies this year, but to be honest, there’s a small selection that stand so far above the rest there isn’t much point in breaking it all down. There are some top quality acts over the weekend, acts I’ll most certainly not be missing out on, but in all this build up to this weekend and all the talk I’ve seen and heard, there may as well only be one band performing. Bloc Party. I’m still trying to prepare myself for 23h20 Central Darling Time. It’s going to be big. If you’re attempting to do the same this may help, the latest Bloc Party setlist (from their Toronto show on 10 September). It may not be the one they use for us, but you can bet it’ll be pretty damn close.
Hunting for Witches
Song for Clay (Disappear Here)
One More Chance
This Modern Love

Mark that email unread, put your phone on silent (it should be on silent already), close your office door, grab your lunch and come on a little journey with me. I’m going to ease you through lunch, while at the same time stroking your excitement gland. Click ‘play’, then click ‘pause’ on all of them, then come back when they are ready.
I know. I know. Just two more sleeps.
