Well, it’s official: LCD Soundsystem have decided to retire from the road after one last gig at Madison Square Garden. Here’s the official statement from their Web site, along with a video from the band’s Bowery Ballroom show last year:
good people of earth:
lcd soundsystem are playing madison square garden on april 2nd, and it will be our last show ever. we are retiring from the game. gettin’ out. movin’ on. but for just one more night, we will be playing with friends and family for nearly 3 hoursâ€“playing stuff we’ve never played before and going out with a bang. and we’d like you to be there.
if you would, we’d love it if people all came in white. or black. or black and white. and come ready to have fun, please. and come early, as the festivities will be opened by our favorites, liquid liquid. yes: liquid liquid.
if it’s a funeral, let’s have the best funeral ever!!!
And there you have it. If you’re new to Liquid Liquid and don’t understand how influential they’ve been to James Murphy’s LCD reign, here‘s an exclusive interview between them and Tussle. This video makes us tingle a bit, too…
