New Tix: LCD Soundsystem leads the happening at Hard Rock
Don’t be deceived by the sugary beats: LCD Soundsystem doesn’t do anything simply. They can’t even break up in a straightforward way, if their driving force is to be believed. According to James Murphy, This Is Happening will be the last release for the band per se, though the Soundsystem “will still exist, to a certain degree” — whatever that means. The interviews are cagey, but Murphy admits that turning 40 at the height of his fame has more than a little to do with the decision.
See what you’ve done to your idols, hipsters? One of the smartest musicians to hit the dance floor in years and you’ve smothered him so much that he’s having his midlife crisis in reverse. When Murphy tries to stage a comeback with a heartfelt album of Sting covers, you’ll have only yourselves to blame.
LCD Soundsystem plays Hard Rock Live with Sleigh Bells on Oct. 5. Tickets are $32-$37, on sale today.
