LCD Soundsystem: Madison Square Garden
Iman Lababedi, Rock NYC, 3 April 2011
JAMES MURPHY is Irish, so why not a wake? Following his decision to kill off the LCD Soundsystem franchise, lead singer Murphy announced a last hurrah at Madison Square Garden, less than a month after the Pogues had done the same thing at T5. And that's what we got, four nights at T5 followed by a long (over 3 1/2 hours) career high, career overview. A statement made, and Murphy's statement was: "My call, we are leaving at the top."
