Yeah, I'm grateful that a band I love is making more music and that I have a chance to see them play live, again. Such a weirdo, me.

Same same - and I've already been for both the April and June residencies. Y'all are in for something special.

Major flashbacks to their Governors Ball performance a couple weeks ago, which was so, so much better than I expected it to be. Check out Phoenix live, if you can.

For a long time, I was sure that I was open-minded enough about music that I'd never become the type of person who just wouldn't *get* any new style or take or genre. Then, I listened to that Ugly God song.

I mean, you know he's just playing a bunch of shows, right? He's not, like, planning to murder any puppies, or anything. The last Brooklyn Steel residency was a mess. Tons of people missed out. What does LCD Soundsystem playing this run, here, hurt, exactly? Like, the universe is somehow diminished because a bunch of people get to see a band they like play live? Weird.

I know! I was all, "Cool, I missed them last time, so now I'll get to see them on the come-back." Then, I saw the venue. Sigh. Better than nothing, I suppose.

Wow, this, new Grizzly Bear, and new LCD Soundsystem, all in the same day? It's like the universe is trying to make up for yesterday's shit show all in one fell swoop.

I am a huge LCD Soundsystem fan and have been for a long time, and in no way do I feel I have ever been burned. Sometimes, you miss out on tickets to an in-demand concert. It's not personal.

April 7, 2017 on LCD Soundsystem Played 3 New Songs At Brooklyn Steel And They Sounded Like This
There's mickrandom26 above, but I probably should have put this comment in the story about the original message asking people not to record, which had a bunch of comments calling the band pretentious and worse for wanting to keep people from recording video at the shows. That's my bad, really, but the sentiment remains. :)

"WORDS? WHAT ARE THESE WORDS? I DEMAND SHAKY CELL PHONE VIDEO, NOT SOME PALTRY 'DESCRIPTION.' GIMME GIMME GIMME." - Everyone Seriously, y'all. Just because you've gotten used to getting everything you want at the touch of a button doesn't mean the band owes it to you. Get over yourselves. Jeez.

Shout out to the hero who streamed pretty much this entire show on Periscope. My fiancee and I sat on the couch eating pizza and having our minds blown for an hour and change. Wherever you are, guy, you da real MVP.

With this and a new New Pornographers record imminent, our cup on that particular front runneth over.

It's hard for me not to default to the NYC festivals, since they're literally walking distance from my apartment, but damn, this lineup is sick.

I don't disagree! But Chance, Childish Gambino, Wu-Tang Clan, Whiz Kalifa, Logic, Schoolboy Q, and Rae Sremmurd strikes me as better overall, and that's just the first four lines of GovBall's poster - it keeps going.

They're not headlining, assuming Panorama follows the pattern they did last year. They'll be second-to-last that day on the main stage before Tame Impala.

I guess it depends what you're into, as well. GovBall is SICK for hip-hop this year. Tribe is a definite win on that front for Pano, but beyond that, I feel like GovBall wins that genre pretty handily.

This was obviously written by someone with only a faint grasp of English. I mean, "It’s a shame that we were put into the hands of a production team with technical issues who chose to capitalize on circumstances beyond our control. " That's some word salad, right there. The production team chose to capitalize on circumstances beyond her control? What does that even mean?

I don't know that I agree. This is a really good lineup, but GovBall did pretty well this year, too. The pattern I feel like is emerging is that GovBall puts out a deeper lineup with more meat to it, but Panorama's top line kills - it was the same last year.

Elbow is the shit. I'm doing my best to telepathically suggest to them that they need to hit the US festival circuit this summer.

December 6, 2016 on Elbow – “Magnificent (She Says)”
I guess I'm in the minority, here - I really didn't like that arrangement. How do you lose that climactic coda? That's the best part of the song! Oof. They performed the hell out of it, for sure, and I guess points for trying something different. But I'm glad I didn't get this version when I saw them earlier this year.
