Sirius XMU had the band hosting all day and it was brilliant. I'm not sure if I liked what they said or what they played better. James Murphy can do no wrong in my book. A real person who makes amazing music, but is grounded enough to still get what it's like to be so completely enamored with music, a musician, a little touch of something that strikes a chord that you can't bear the thought of not seeing them live. Some bands take that for granted.
Wondering what I'd missed out on I asked Sarah if she'd heard any details of the show and she forwarded me this live video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v
Thank goodness it was a proofing day. I got to pop my headphones in, edit 83 pages and listen/watch the first 3 hours and 4 minutes of their final show. LCD Soundsystem, you will be missed. And not just by me. Cut Copy, Chromeo, Holy Ghost and others weigh in: http://www.esquire.com/the-side/end-of-lcd-soundsystem/james-murphy-influence-040111
ADDENDUM: The above video was removed from youtube.
That's cool. I distinctly remember James Murphy requesting everyone put down their cameras at the Miami show. He asked that we be in the moment and enjoy it. I can respect that too.
