Earlier this week we learned that The White Stripes have called it quits, DFA Records have posted "A message from LCD Soundsystem." The message reads:
Pretty surprising news coming from a band that spent last summer gracing the stages of the U.S.'s famed music festivals.
good people of earth:
lcd soundsystem are playing madison square garden on april 2nd, and it will be our last show ever. we are retiring from the game. gettin’ out. movin’
on. but for just one more night, we will be playing with friends and family for nearly 3 hours–playing stuff we’ve never played before and going out with a bang. and we’d like you to be there.
if you would, we’d love it if people all came in white. or black. or black and white. and come ready to have fun, please. and come early, as the festivities will be opened by our favorites, liquid liquid. yes: liquid
if it’s a funeral, let’s have the best funeral ever!!!
