LCD Soundsystem's "Long Goodbye"
June 16, 2014
So, despite Spotify usually notifying me of new albums by my favorite bands, I only just noticed that the final LCD Soundsystem concert, which is probably one of the best moments of my life thusfar, is available as an album, titled "The Long Goodbye."
I've seen some pretty epic live shows, notably Fever Ray at Webster Hall, Of Montreal at Webster Hall and Terminal 5, and Pulp at Radio City, but none can really top LCD at MSG. The band played for over 3 hours before their last song tradition of playing "New York I Love You" and dropping white balloons onto the crowd. They played deep cuts, sweated, changed costumes, had Reggie Watts on keyboard and some new vocals for 45:33's "You Can't Hide/Shame On You", and, of course, cried.
