For those of us that were lucky enough to see LCD Soundsytem’s epic return and jaw breaking performance at Coachella, we all know just how amazing the experience was. Thankfully for those who didn’t attend, LCD played a couple shows in the LA area where fans were exposed to all the bombastic greatness that is LCD Soundsystem.
Last Saturday, June 5, 2010 disco Renaissance man James Murphy (aka LCD Soundsystem) graced the stage of the Fox Theater Pomona with an entourage of booming walls of sound, day-tripping lights and a vibrant ensemble of musicians — LCD put on quite the nostalgic dance party. Needless to say, he also played a fun sampling of songs from his latest (and final album) “This Is Happening.” The crowd went absolutely bonkers when “Drunk Girls” came blasting through the speakers. I couldn’t tell if it was the bass causing the vibrations through the floor, or all the happy dancers jumping around on the Fox Theater floor!
As tired as I was from the previous night’s shenanigans, I still gathered enough energy to bob my head and shake my hips with the rest of the friendly faces at the show. It was a raging dance party and dang, there were some hot chicks in the house!
Opening up for LCD was Brooklyn’s Holy Ghost! They brought in their tropical electro rhythms with a fierce but friendly sound—a perfect compliment to LCD.
