"Day Two of Pitchfork Music Festival far surpassed my expectations and far surpassed Day One.

Firstly, James Murphy is a rock god. LCD Soundsystem was phenomenal tonight and all my objective journalistic ethics have been shed and all I can do is gush. Taking the stage at 8:30, LCD brought the energy and never let it down, even on tamer songs like "Someone Great" the entirety of Union Park was rapt. Murphy has such a keen knack for dynamics and showmanship, regardless of a concert-goers knowledge of LCD, his concert was a non-stop dance fest. Honestly, this was one of the best live performances I've attended." [Chicago Now]

LCD Soundsystem made everyone else look bad this summer. It all started with their live return at Music Hall of Williamsburg in April, continued through the Sasquatch Festival at the end of May, and most recently happened last night at Pitchfork in Chicago.

But that's it for now. They have less than 10 shows currently scheduled between now and Austin City Limits in October, and all of those shows are mixed between Asia, Australia and Europe. All dates and more pictures from Pitchfork AND Sasquatch (I never got a chance to post them before), below...

Yes, they are doing the same delist. One for fests and one headlining. Pretty much the only setlist that has differed was the show of the year at MHOW.

The Nov. UK shows are coheadlining shows with Hot Chip. Those will be great.

this band has so many great songs and i wonder why james is fucking all his repeat fans over by playing the same songs every night? don't get me wrong, great show, but i didn't need to see it 5 times now.

I'm holding out hope they do one more home show to conclude the tour.

Geez, pulling a quote from Chicago Now, the worst tripe ever to be published? Chicago Now is a spinoff of the Tribune and is written by amateur journalist contributors. Every article has misspellings, non-words like "anyways," ill-advised words like "firstly," and from what I've seen seems to be written by clueless jocks and bimbos. There's gotta be a better pull quote you can find about the LCD Soundsystem show.
