LCD Soundsystem played Webster Hall

Yes, I know these pictures suck…but I didn’t go to see LCD Soundsystem last Monday (4/12) to take pictures, I went to dance.  Four nights after they played their first proper show in three years at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, the band took the stage to a devoted crowd at Webster Hall and quickly debuted “Pow Pow” from their new album  This is Happening.  While James Murphy wandered around the stage talking/singing the lyrics, he was constantly playing production manager, checking levels on amps, monitoring the monitors and being obsessive that it sounded as good as it possibly could in the room.  While James is the leader of the group, it’s drummer Pat Mahoney that’s really the MVP.  His work on the kit was outstanding all night and he was rewarded with a spot at the front of the stage (right side), so the crowd could bear witness.

The Monday night crowd was a little sluggish to get moving at first, but gradually the beats got bigger and better and by the time they were six songs in on crowd-favorite “All My Friends” the place was electric and I was dripping sweat.  A girl in front of me fainted into me mid-song…suffering from cocktails/heat/intense-beats I’m sure.  I’ve got a feeling the band will make more people drop to the floor at  their upcoming shows at Terminal 5 (5/20 – 5/23 ).  Tickets are still currently available for the Sunday (5/23) here.

Stream the new album in its entirety at LCD Soundsystem’s website.  Set list after the jump.
