This week has kind of been a bummer with GREAT bands calling it quits. First we had the iconic duo, the White Stripes, and now we have LCD Soundsystem officially retiring from “the game.” But unlike the White Stripes, dance genius James Murphy and his crew will be going out with a bang! LCD will be playing a three-hour + farewell show at Madison Square Garden on April 2, 2011. And trust me, this is gonna be one wild party! Book your flight now LA!

Check out their official statement below:
