LCD Soundsystem Debuts Three New Songs At Brooklyn Steel Opening

first_imgLast night, LCD Soundsystem played the opening night at NYC’s newest venue Brooklyn Steel. The evening also marked the first of five nights at the Bowery Presents establishment. With A+ sound and quality sight-lines, the venue proved itself to be well worth the wait. LCD properly used the opportunity to perform a mix of old-school favorites, like “Us vs. Them,” “Daft Punk,” “I Can Change,” “Someone Great,”and of course, “New York I Love You,” and even debuted a couple of new tunes.Before the show, the band sincerely asked their fans to refrain from videoing old songs, because they “already made a whole movie out of those,” and to please not film the new songs, calling it a “gutpunch to all the people who have been working insanely hard for the last 18 months to release this music in the way [they] want to release it.” Gloriously, last night was the debut of three new songs, “Tonight,” “Call Police,” and “American Dream” which they premiered during the first encore of the night. It was the perfect way for fans to experience the new tunes, which they’d been craving for seven years since the band’s 2010 This Is Happening. Frontman James Murphy announced that they are “almost done” with the new LP, making the first live performance even more exciting.The band returned for a second encore with “Dance Yrself Clean” and “All My Friends,” two house favorites that of course left the room buzzing with energy.The band is expected to play a similar setlist the upcoming four nights, so we won’t spoil the surprises until after the five-night residency is complete. All we can say is, you’ll thank us later.Setlist: LCD Soundsystem | Brooklyn Steel | New York City | 4/6/17Us vs. Them, Daft Punk, I Can Change, Get Innocuous, You Wanted A Hit, Tribulations, Movement, Yeah, Someone Great, Home, New York I Love YouE: Tonight, Call Police, American DreamE2: Dance Yrself Clean, All My Friends [photo via @deadheady]last_img read more
