Kele Okereke and G

Kele Okereke, has dropped his last name and his band Bloc Party for the moment. Kele’s debut solo album “The Boxer,” which I am liking more and more with each listen, is being released on June 21, 2010.  To celebrate the record, Kele threw a listening party at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge on June 16, 2010 and I was there to catch all the action.  He played the album in full (and the crowd loved it!) and then afterwards he did a DJ set.  As I was getting my groove on, I caught Kele’s eye and asked if I could take a picture with him.  He obliged and was super nice!  Thanks Kele!  Loving your debut solo album “The Boxer” and I can’t wait to see you live in August!  And for all Kele fans, you can get an exclusive (and really great) mp3 remix of his awesome new single “Tenderoni” on his official site as well as downloading stems to make you own remixes, while supplies last!
