LCD Soundsystem

Last week I saw LCD Soundsystem in concert. I was expecting a good show based on things I've read about them, and I wasn't disappointed. Having a full band makes for a pretty heavy live sound. I find it somewhat amusing that James Murphy kind of looks like an average schlubby dude, or at least not like a "typical" lead singer of an indie band. He's got a great voice though.

And speaking of voices, probably my least favorite thing about LCD Soundsystem's records is Nancy Whang's backing vocals. They just seem a bit shrill or too far up in the mix for my taste maybe. However, I thought she sounded just fine live. Although at one point near the end of the show James tried out her mic and said something about it being much quieter than his, so maybe that explains it!

Altogether a highly recommended show if you like their albums!

I could read this setlist when I zoomed the image on my camera to its max.
