Kele-vision: which band would Bloc Party's singer rather be in, Oasis or the Who? Paul Driscoll gets the lowdown from BP on an album's worth of unreleased material, which BMP band they were most psyched to see, about the best Oasis drummer ever. Click to watch the video.

Most overheard comment when OTD first walked down Lansdowne St. last night: "Kings of Leon aren’t playing?!" Yep, KOL backed out at the last minute (minus many cool points for them) but it was truly their loss because the crowd at Best Music Poll was plentiful and apparently fueled by Red Bull - nearly seven hours after they trickled in, as the Cinematics played an ear-splittingly loud cover of a Beck track from Sea Change on the outdoor stage, Axis was packed to capacity as Silversun Pickups began their explosive set 15 minutes early, explaining that they were bored backstage and everyone was there already anyway.?xml:namespace>
VIDEO: U.V. Protection, "Animals"
Thanks again to everyone who sent along videos for Best Music Poll. We tried to get them up on the ballot page, but the ballot page wasn't having it. So we're gonna try rolling them out OTD-style. If we're lucky, clicking above will get you the awesome video for UV Protection's "Animals," which reminds us of something by Numbers, although it turns out UV Pro have never heard Numbers.
This, dudes, is going to sell out quickly. We'll have VIP tix to give away eventually, but do you really want to rely on OTD's spotty blogging schedule to get into this?
