LCD Soundsystem emerged from New York City in July 2002 with James Murphy’s first recording as LCD and third release on his DFA label, “Losing My Edge.” Keyboardist/vocalist Nancy Whang and drummer Pat Mahoney were recruited for live shows as the band released singles including “Movement” and “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House,” which would appear on its eponymous 2005 debut LP. Sound Of Silver, the second LCD Soundsystem album, was released in 2007 and featured the singles “Someone Great” and “All My Friends.” In 2010, the third LCD Soundsystem album This Is Happening was released, featuring singles including “I Can Change" and debuting in the US Top 10. On April 2, 2011, LCD Soundsystem performed The Long Goodbye, a three-hour-plus farewell concert at a sold-out Madison Square Garden, chronicled by both a live album of the same name and the feature film documentary Shut Up And Play The Hits. After four years of silence, LCD Soundsystem released the new song “Christmas Will Break Your Heart” on December 24, 2015. The band returned to the stage shortly thereafter, headlining festivals and select dates throughout 2016. 2017 saw the release of the #1-charting fourth LCD album AMERICAN DREAM which featured the “Best Dance Recording” GRAMMY-winning “Tonite.” In September 2022, LCD Soundsystem released its first new song in five years, “new body rhumba,” written for Noah Baumbach’s feature film White Noise. LCD Soundsystem is James Murphy, Pat Mahoney, Nancy Whang, Al Doyle, Tyler Pope, Korey Richey, Nick Millhiser and Abi Echeverria.
ABOUT BILL GRAHAM CIVIC AUDITORIUM:
Built in 1915 as part of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium derives its name from the late impresario Bill Graham, who began the rock ‘n roll movement in San Francisco in the 1960s. The historic building has hosted a multitude of significant cultural events, including the Democratic National Convention in 1920, a speech from Martin Luther King Jr. to the NAACP in 1956, and served as the Golden State Warriors’ home court from 1964 to 1966. President Barack Obama was a guest of the venue both in 2007 and 2012 for campaign speeches, and the Dalai Lama offered two days of teachings in 2007. As the exclusive promoter, Another Planet Entertainment manages the building with respect to its rich history and keeps the venue active with hundreds of concerts and special events. Past concerts include performances by the Grateful Dead, Elton John, Beastie Boys, Metallica, Swedish House Mafia, Chance the Rapper, The Killers, Janet Jackson, Phish, Lady Gaga, Bob Dylan, Tool, Bruno Mars, Zedd, Juanes, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Journey, Billie Eilish, Lizzo and many more. billgrahamcivic.com.
