LCD last show - go watch!

LCD Sound System played their last ever show last night, at Madison Square Gardens, to 20,000 fans. Pitchfork streamed the video of it live, and I'm surprised the NZ internets didnt come crashing down, cos everyone I knew was watching it.

Pitchfork have posted the ENTIRE video on Youtube, with handy time listings for each song. Bless em! Check the rousing version of North American Scum, followed by a hilarious intro to the next song from James Murphy, their splendid cover of Alan Vega's Bye Bye Bayou, which he says is the first and last time they will ever play that song live. "Welcome to our rehearsal".

Here's a great review of the show, hat tip to Owen H for the link
