Fall on Your Sword

On April 12, 2010, the electronic trio Fall On Your Sword  opened for the all-mighty LCD Soundsystem at New York’s Webster Hall.  In addition to dancing on the boundaries of electronica and rock, the band had some really cool visuals as the back drop to their 35 minute opening set.  At one point a clever mash up of Meg Ryan’s infamous orgasm scene from “When Harry Met Sally” was spliced with a Michael Caine monologue on the video screens behind the band.  There was also a video of William Shatner being interviewed (and remixed) on a mountain.  The band played original material as well as covers of New Order’s “Ceremony” and Bauhaus’ “Bela Lugosi’s Dead.”  Expect big things to come from this band.

LCD Soundsystem at Webster Hall

James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem

When LCD Soundsystem hit the stage of Webster Hall in New York on April 12, 2010 at the stroke of 11 pm, the sold out crowd for this not-so-secret show literally surrendered themselves to reckless abandon for the next two hours.  Front-man James Murphy told the crowd that he was “much less drunk tonight,” referring to the other night when LCD Soundsystem played their first show in nearly 3 years in Brooklyn.  Keeping the lighting scheme quite minimal until the end portion of the show, the band played old hits and material from their upcoming album “This is Happening.”  You can tell that James Murphy is a fan of music because he was very gleeful when he gave the introduction to the band’s B-side “Yr City’s A Sucker.”  The crowd enjoyed new tracks such as “Pow Pow” and “I Can Change” but all hell broke loose during very funky versions of “Tribulations,” “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House” and their new single “Drunk Girls.”  Murphy also begged the crowd not to bootleg their new record prior to its official release – which must mean it’s out there somewhere (Google is your friend in these kinds of situations).  The band is getting ready to rock Coachella very soon, but just remember – we had them first!
