Pitchfork Will Stream Final LCD Soundsytem Show April 2nd

March 28, 2011

With dance-punk band LCD Soundsystem slated to put on their final performance ever at Madison Square Garden, its comes as no surprise that tickets sold out in near record times.

James Murphy and company responded early by adding multiple lead-up shows at New York’s Terminal 5, including shows on March 29, 30 and 31. (Tuesday-Thursday.)

Pitchfork will be the sole streamer of LCD Soundsystem's final show at Madison Square Garden April 2nd, in what is a rare and unpassable opportunity for the website.

With exceeding demand to witness the band’s glorious exit still fervent, music news website Pitchfork announced on Friday its plan to stream the LCD Soundsystem finale at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, April 2. Fans will be further inclined to tune in, considering it will be a ‘one-off’ broadcast, with no replays or second-chances available thereafter.

While LCD Soundsystem participated in last summer’s Pitchfork Music Festival, hosted by the website in its hometown of Chicago, I would go as far as to speculate a certain degree of loyalty in the pair’s latest arrangement. Having exclusive rights to stream what is sure to be one the year’s biggest concerts is an utmost privilege, which will undoubtedly incite thousands of visitors to the Pitchfork domain.

LCD Soundsystem has promised a performance that will exceed three hours, following what is sure to be another epic set by opening band and fellow New York City post-punk legends Liquid Liquid.

All the while, I’m left to extend an invitation of my own to all those historic groups planning to retire by way of a final show for the ages.

“Want to play for Hot Hot Music?”

Hey, I can dream, can’t I?
