We’ve been holding off on posting about the latest Bloc Party video and song since it hit the intertubes a few weeks back.? Mostly, we’ve just been disappointed, dismayed, and confused by the musical direction of the band.? Their latest album, Weekend in the City, though it has grown on us considerably, was still a major disappointment for 2007.? Maybe we were expecting the moon and got Uranus instead, but whatever the reason, Bloc Party you’re on our shit list.
So, why are we writing about their latest video for “Flux?”? Well, because Kaiju Big Battle is awesome.? They are the real stars of this video and they have an upcoming big battle.
Kaiju Big Battel: More Better Fighto
When: Friday, November 9th, 2007. 8PM doors, 9PM show.
Where: The Warsaw, 261 Driggs. Ave. Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY
Tickets: $20 advance, $23 day of show. Available at all Ticketmaster locations and online at Ticketmaster.com
If you’ve ever had the delicious pleasure of seeing a big battle in person, then you know why we’re excited for all ya’ll hipster folks in Brooklyn.? Kaiju rarely travels outside the New England/New York corridor so it’s a must if they come to your town.
Man in suit! Man in suit!
The video was shot by director Ace Norton over two days in Boston, which is where the monster mayhem offices are located. ? Kaiju combines Godzilla like craziness with pro-wrestling plotlines for a one-of-a-kind art form.? Truly unique and wonderful to watch/follow!
