DOWNLOAD: Holy Ghost! - Say My Name (MP3)

"Good luck trying to find a better live show than the one LCD Soundsytem just put on at Terminal 5." - Jon Cohen

T5

Holy Ghost! played their 2nd live show as a full band last night at Terminal 5 in NYC (5/20) (they went on at 8:30). Their six song set included a guest appearance by Penguin Prison, "Say My Name" (download it above, get it on their new EP) and "Jam for Jerry". Their full setlist is below.

Holy Ghost's first-ever show was a private show Saturday night at Under 100. Their third is tonight (Friday, 5/21), again at Terminal 5, and again opening for LCD Soundsystem. In fact, they open every LCD show from now until June 9th, and for Hot Chip at Summerstage. All dates below.

LCD Soundsystem went on at 9:30 and played for two hours, long encore included. The encore included a cover of Empire State of Mind - that's when the balloons came down, which they tacked on to NY I Love You.

The bands seemed to be having some technical difficulties. James said it's nice to be able to sleep in his own bed before each of the four NYC shows they're doing at the venue through Sunday.

More pictures, a video, setlists and more dates below..

they should be playing dance yrself clean at every show

yes, can't wait to hear dance yourself clean. and i'll poop my pants if they play beat connection or harry's jump into the fire.

set is similar to April shows
I agree with 2:45

you don't see too many shows, mr. cohen,
do you?
not that this one wasn't great, but common,
do us a favor...
this new culture of exaggeration is really annoying.

glad I saw the show at Webster and can totally sidestep this......

there were no lasers last night?

Posted by noamjamski | May 21, 2010 2:59 PM

they should have played with Soul Asylum again, their music would definitely sound better in a bigger venue

Posted by Anonymous | May 21, 2010 3:01 PM

amazing show.
i see myself in one of the insane crowd pictures. second row yeah. i was dancing all night long.

Posted by Anonymous | May 21, 2010 3:01 PM

No "Dance Yrself Clean" and no "Home". It sure would be nice if they played they best two songs on the new record. I hope they do it for me tonight.

Posted by Patrick | May 21, 2010 3:13 PM

@3:01

Actually you're thinking of Light Asylum. The worst opener in the history of bands.

BTW- I was at both MHOW and Webster and still had a GREAT time last night!

Posted by Anonymous | May 21, 2010 3:14 PM

there were only a few laser displays, and they pointed up behind the band. not like webster, which was ridiculous.

Posted by Anonymous | May 21, 2010 3:16 PM

I bought a ticket for face value ($40-ish including Ticketmaster charges) around 7:45 p.m. by finding someone with an extra. Definitely worth it if you are on the fence. I saw them a couple of times before, in 2005, 2007. Couldn't say this was better or worse. They're consistently excellent.

I was surprised how little of the new album they played. Set list above has four listed; they may have played five tracks. It was almost like a set from a couple of years ago. Even the song order seemed familiar. I didn't like the "Empire State of Mind" flourish. It just didn't fit. But obviously, the T5 crowd ate it up.

I love the old stuff, but would have liked more new stuff. When you hear a song live, it helps with the enjoyment of the album.

Posted by Anonymous | May 21, 2010 3:21 PM

Def hope Home and Dance Yrself Clean make it onto tonight's set list but either way I'm sure this is going to be crazy...

Posted by BTW | May 21, 2010 3:28 PM

"T5 CROWD" what is that supposed to mean? ; - )

Posted by Anonymous | May 21, 2010 3:41 PM

also, if you are baloon phobic, this would be a terrible show, they should warn you about the baloons much like they do for people that cannot be exposed to lazers [seizures] etc.

Still boggles my mind that in 2010, people still like house music.

they should open w Dance Yrslf Clean. really wished they had last night. though can't complain. danced in VIP w Karen O.

@2:58 - let me guess, you were there in 1974 at the first Suicide practices in a loft in New York City.

@3:21, Agree completely. However, I think James has made comments in the past about preferring to perform older stuff?

@everyone, agreed on Dance Yrself Clean for tonight (and Saturday as well).

@3:42, I am going to rig an automated boner cannon to wake you up tomorrow morning.

Who the fuck is balloon phobic? People with latex allergies?

Posted by BONER CANNON | May 21, 2010 3:54 PM

That Asian girl is in a lot of bands. Her name is Trisha Takanawa. She's in Deerhoof, Thao with the get down stay down, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Satellite Party with Perry Farrell. She also did some earlier work with John Lennon.

Posted by Anonymous | May 21, 2010 3:57 PM

You're thinking of Yoko Ono. In every one of those examples.

Asian girl also does stand up on the side. A little too crass and sarcastic for my tastes but it gets laughs.

I hope they play "Drunk Girls" and "Watch the Tapes" back-to-back so the crowd can all realize together that it's the same song.

no, actually i think you are incorrect. she is a full time musician and does not work in a massage parlor at all.

Actually, BC stands for "Baiting Canadians". And 11:28 doesn't get it.

this band sounds like various remixes of "heroes", w/some fat guy who can't get laid anymore filling in for bowie. not for me.

Posted by Anonymous | May 22, 2010 8:39 AM

Too much hate in this thread. Anyway, this show was such an interesting contrast to the MHofW show in April. All things considered, nothing could have been more fun than the MHofW show. It was like a big reunion of friends who hadn't seen each other in a long time.

The T5 show, on the other hand, was overall a better performance. The crowd was decent, but nothing like the insanity that took place at MHofW. However, the band peaked. Murphy, who was apparently less inebriated, remembered his lyrics and took his singing seriously. The band has never sounded better.

I completely agree with earlier comments that they should have played "Dance Y'rself Clean". I frakin love that song.

was it really the same setlist both nights so far?? that's just unprofessional for a hometown band with more than one album.

i mean my memory is pretty fuzzy, but if its not exactly the same its VERY close. i think they may have switched around the order but thats it.

Disappointing bc at MHOW, Murphy talked about not
playing all new songs but that by the end of their T5 shows,
they will have played almost every song. Lazy. Lazy. Lazy

Loved the Friday show. Such a fun time, but who were the dbags who were throwing water/beer from the 2nd level onto the crowd below?

Would have liked to hear Dance Yrself Clean as well, but only a minor quibble. Killer, killer set.

Wow, 3 nights in a row of the exact same setlist in the same city? That's actually pretty shocking, especially if it's your hometown.

Posted by Anonymous | May 23, 2010 1:18 PM

the sound has been miserable for the first three shows-when there's 7 great musicians onstage and only 3 of them are coming through the speakers it's embarrassing for the band. they seemed frustrated and resigned a few times last night.

it's the same set list but there's nothing wrong with that, since it's 15 great songs in a row. hope they play NYC again in a real venue.

Posted by Anonymous | May 23, 2010 3:23 PM

i think tonight is their last nyc show ever.

Posted by Anonymous | May 23, 2010 4:13 PM

i doubt they're gonna be done with nyc shows tonight. although their new album is most likely their last, i feel like they're gonna do one last run or big show to end it off.

Posted by Anonymous | May 23, 2010 4:28 PM

i dont believe this retiring stuff at all. it appears he'll be taking a break to focus on other things but after a couple of years away, i'll be shocked if he doesn't comes back to lcd soundsystem at some point. forever is a long time.

july 18th at the waterfront. you heard it here first.

Posted by Anonymous | May 23, 2010 6:48 PM

i don't see how they can do a free waterfront show. paid, yes. free would be a clusterfuck.

they sold out 4 shows at a 3,000 capacity venue, seems unlikely they'd do a free show at a 6,000 capacity place when they could easily sell out a paid show there. just saying.

LCD are beyond free shows folks. It is a biz...lest we forget.

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2010 1:02 AM

so two things from Sunday night:
-he commented on wanting to change up the set list for tonight, but then said "fuck it" and didn't. ok.
-he may have made a little slip: "this is our last show in nyc for this album"

all in all, good show that would have been great had it take place at any other venue. T5 should be left for the deadmau5's of the world

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2010 4:33 AM

I'm sure we ALL are surprised that James and Co. did the same setlist all four nights. Something we hope they lose sleep over for years to come.

If I was in a band I'd be bored as fuck playing the same songs in the same sequence 4 shows in a row.

I was at the bookend nights. Definitely odd that they were willing to only practice 15 songs. If you play 4 shows in a row in one locale, it's naive to think the people who go to multiple shows (your biggest fans) are going to have a good time at the next show.

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2010 10:31 AM

i think it's naive to think the biggest fans wouldn't enjoy two identical nights equally as much.

that's why they're the biggest fans.

They needed to do these shows at Nokia. I was at Thursday and the sound was downright awful; as many here have said it was difficult to hear an even mix of the instruments. This was my 2nd show at T5 and i have the same review for both. Nokia remains, hands down, the best-sounding venue in NYC.

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2010 12:06 PM

@9:51 I can't agree more. As soon as the singer leaves the mic the band really kicked ass. They would really work better as an instrumental band, rather than the current format of an awful Michael Jackson karaoke night.

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2010 5:51 PM

@6:51 & 7:52 - you seem confused about why bands play free shows and how they work.

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2010 6:36 PM

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
