Losing his edge? Never. But James Murphy is calling it quits, taking LCD Soundsystem out for one last show at Madison Square
Garden. Few bands have had as much impact on the indie-rock scene, nor united so many critics behind them. It's hard not to
love the band's pounding jams and Murphy's hilarious, sweet and sad lyrics, so pick up concert
tickets and wish him well.
James Murphy is the hipster's hipster, but he also knows not to take himself too seriously. LCD Soundsystem's breakthrough
track was "Losing My Edge," a rambling, increasingly desperate confessional from a guy who had all your favorite band's early
EPs long before you did, but just can't keep up with the kids. Mixing ironic humor with heartfelt sadness and joy over three
LPs, LCD Soundsystem became a favorite in the indie-rock scene.
Will Daft Punk be playing at James Murphy's house when LCD Soundsystem wraps up their final tour? It's a distinct possibility.
But fans will be content to get Murphy and the band to themselves one last time when they come to Madison Square Garden in New York.
Soundsystem tickets for Madison Square Garden are selling fast. Make sure you buy your tickets before they're all sold
out, because this is going to be a show that fans are going to remember and talk about for a long while.
