Our high school self was very excited to see Bloc Party when they swooped through Portland. The show was moved to the Wonder Ballroom and we were a bit surprised to not see a sold out audience. Nonetheless, the lead singer, Kele Okereke, showed off all of the band’s talents and played our favorite hits. Before the show we bumped into Louise Bartle – the raddest female drummer on the scene – after a big shopping adventure at the adidas employee store. If you haven’t seen Louise in her element, that needs to be added to the bucket list.
