Horror of horrors! LCD Soundsystem, beloved staple band of indie rockers and frat house poppers alike, is breaking up. And they’re playing their last show ever at Madison Square Garden, of all places. Sigh. If you live in NYC, you might have seen posters to that effect going up around the city, but yesterday, the band posted this missive on their website for all to see.
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 hours–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.
Another great American band bites the dust. Better iron your tuxedos for the funeral.
