LCD Soundsystem 9/24/07 Bank of America Arena, WA

Have you ever smoked some weed and just sat and listened to music? Ok, so drugs aren’t really my thing, and I haven’t done that in probably 11 years, but if you do you’ll relate to this statement… you sit and you hear every possibly note, hidden, subtle, or otherwise and it just moves you, or you trip. eh

I had a couple of moments like this at LCD’s show. I literally closed my eyes, my ears were full on the most vivid sounds and holy fucking shit, did they move me; almost to tears in fact with “Someone Special”. Great song, the kind that would play on the soundtrack of you’re life, with pictured moments flashing through your mind. Amazing

For some reason I envisioned a lanky hipster with long stringy hair spouting messages of utter lame trendiness for a singer. James Murphy, I must say, surprised me. Tall, perhaps (I was on floor level) skinny, not so much, but a sweaty huggable man; yes. He was vivacious, fun, and a general treat for the masses. I must admit that upon browsing through the current cd jacket, that he is a musical, dare I say, genius, playing several of the elements contained therein.

Their closing number for the evening… “New York I Love You, But You’re Brining Me Down”, was such a perfect fit for ending a high impact set. With mellow vocals and sweet piano sounds building to a powerful conclusion, a break, slow it down again with a bow from James, and me left wanting more.
Honestly, I cannot say enough to relay just how good they are
