LCD Soundsystem @ Terminal 5

LCD Soundsystem played their fourth consecutive sold out show at Terminal 5 on Thursday night, which leads to Saturday night’s farewell gig at Madison Square Garden. The extended set list for this final club show went on for an astounding three hours and fifteen minutes. The band practically played their entire three-album catalog, save a few covers, with minimal breaks, incredible intensity and the volume turned to max. The 41-year-old James Murphy even joked that drummer Pat Mahoney was suffering from severe back pain, citing “reason #700” why the band was retiring.

From the opening rendition of personal favorite “Dance Yrself Clean” to the epic closer “New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” during the band’s encore, the show was one for the ages. Props to Terminal 5 and the band’s techs for the amazing sound! If you weren’t at one of these final shows, you certainly missed out on seeing one of our generation’s most talented musicians retire LCD Soundsystem in grand style. [Images via BrooklynVegan]
