Within a week of Meg and Jack White of The White Stripes calling it quits, LCD Soundsystem announced their last show will be performed April 2 in Madison Square Garden.
This disco house meets funky, new wave band stated on its official website, “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. if it’s a funeral, let’s have the best funeral ever!!!”
It is sad indeed that we would lose the innovative creators of hits such as “Daft Punk is Playing at my House” and “Tribulations,” but all good things must come to an end and it’s respectable that they’re choosing to do so on a high note.
For disappointed listeners, now is the time to reminisce on the good times (Coachella 2010 anyone?) and take advantage of the time we have left. At the very least, it’s a good excuse to make a trip to the Big Apple.
