LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy has hinted for years that he wanted to end the LCD project while he still loved/enjoyed it. That time has come. On Friday LCD Soundsystem Tweeted, “our last ever show @ madison square garden NYC on april 2… just saying…” On their website the band elaborated further on what will likely be an amazing goodbye party:
