British indie stars Bloc Party are touring America this fall, bringing their banquet of angular guitars and soaring choruses to a major city near you. But before you sound your silent alarms in joy, take a closer look at the other artists scheduled with the recipients of the 2005 Plug Awards’ Indie Rock Album of the Year. In what might be the oddest tour pairing of the year, the Party will tragically be opening for sinful songwriters Panic! At the Disco, and while in some circles it may be better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality, I just feel like eating glass. WTF.
