LCD Soundsystem put on a great show as usual, and it would have been even better had I not had some serious personal space issues to deal with throughout the show. How did I end up next to the extremely large sweaty men and moshing frat boys? They totally distracted me and ruined my enjoyment of the awesome "North American Scum." At least I was eventually able to carve out some space for myself just in time to dance it out during my favorite song of the night, "Yeah." For a review from someone who was not physically accosted by people who couldn't contain their body movements, Just head over to DJBV to get his take on it.
I will add that I was surprised how much more rock than dance the new music came off live; this is by no means a slight, but I realized it was more conducive to the the old head nod during songs like "All My Friends" and "Us. v Them" than the more immediately danceable and beat-driven "Yeah" and "Tribulations." That's James Murphy, bringing two worlds together.
