My favorte part about these Toyota Antics events is the part where you have to decide if you want to "Check here if you would like to be contacted by a dealer."

I was really hoping this was gunna fly under the radar.

If this does well, they're going to do a few nights at Terminal 5.

The only reunion that's happening today, is my mouth reuniting with a fresh baby carrot.

1:57 True. NYC why don't you occupy your own music scene? What a joke.

Posted by Anonymous | November 1, 2011 2:07 PM

i love them to death, but team lcd/dfa are available for hire. that's what's up.

you think they enjoy playing private parties for drunk and coked up, rich assholes at museums, bullshit corporate events like this, or out in the hamptons?? please.

no one is immune from needing to pay the bills, even our beloved soundsystem.

Posted by Anonymous | November 1, 2011 2:16 PM

^yup. Why would anyone want to go to this? I really don't get it. To stand around watch some obviously uninspired people DJ and get an easy corporate paycheck off their "name".

but

"no one is immune from needing to pay the bills, even our beloved soundsystem."

Well then get a job instead of making a mockery of yourself.

Young people of NYC you are being duped.

1:01: I have to disagree with the first statement, even though the two sound similar.

"we are retiring from the game. gettin’ out. movin’ on." -James Murphy


hahaha. Nice way to juice some $ from those final shows. I guess "retiring from the game" means taking corporate money to do even less work than you were doing before.

Beyond lmae. James Murphy you can hand over your artist card and leave through the rear exit.

James Murphy DJs Vinyl. Which is cool.
Why do y'all hate on people making money?

Posted by Anonymous | November 1, 2011 3:03 PM

Listen. We all agree that being "corporate" sucks, we are the 99%, "I only eat organic food because I don't believe in science and because my disproportionately attractive girlfriend makes me", etc.

That being said, James and Pat are actually phenomenal DJs, unlike the countless bands who do laughable "DJ sets" and use the iTunes crossfade function to mercilessly wreck undanceable experimental music and/or terrible electro remixes together. For people who actually *dance* instead of listlessly swaying back and forth while thinking about how awesome the 4th consecutive Jeff Mangum show they just saw was, this might be something worth going to FOR FREE ON A TUESDAY, at least until James and Pat start up their actual Special Disco Version parties again.

Why not get a job, make $, and continue to do interesting things as an artist?

Instead he has chosen to be a low level showbiz type celebrity, who I guess makes $, and makes dull art (if you consider DJing an art).

And why lie about "retiring from the game'. I guess he meant "retiring from the game" of being an artist, to pursue his other interests of lending his celebrity to parties in the Hamptons, fashion week week events, & selling Toyotas.

He can do whatever he wants, but it's perfectly fine to criticize his ethics, or just make fun of him for being lame.

Posted by Anonymous | November 1, 2011 3:14 PM

it is pretty lame, but if i were able to dj with my buddy and play some shit that i like to play for a couple hours, and get mad loot for doing it, what do you think i'd do?

Posted by Anonymous | November 1, 2011 3:22 PM

^why even bother with the pretense of DJing? If your aim is to make $, there are far easier ways. Hell, if your looking to make money as an artist there are better ways.

I don't know, everyone has to set there own limits, but I would have a problem lending my art/name/presence to help a car company endear themselves to the 18-34 year old demographic. (and don't kid yourself that's what this is).

I find that kind of thing to be soul sucking and ultimately emasculating.

It makes me think less of James Murphy, but whatever.

I'm disappointed in you guys, are you really letting this slide: "too bad this is in sketchville on a tue night"

hahaha IT'S IN GREENPOINT.

Posted by Anonymous | November 1, 2011 5:49 PM

^what? That arra isn't sketchy at all. Where are you from Podunk, Iowa?

Posted by Anonymous | November 1, 2011 5:54 PM

I live two blocks away from there! It's not creepy at all.

Posted by Anonymous | November 1, 2011 5:56 PM

there's a police station three blocks away. i think you'll be safe in dangerous greenpoint.

Dood that fat ass got out of the game to pursue his other interests, namely eating doughnuts.

Yes this lame, but in case you haven't noticed, do is Brooklyn these days.

Posted by Anonymous | November 1, 2011 6:13 PM

Posted by Anonymous | November 1, 2011 6:18 PM

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 11:42 AM

it was fine. free booze. the food trucks were lacking hummus though.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 11:50 AM

a bunch of squares danced in a corporate subsidized sanitized environment, made up to look like actual culture.

Fatboy Murphy made a couple bucks.

Really there was nothing worth talking about.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 11:51 AM

how late did the thing go and how long did james & pat play for?

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 3:11 PM

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 4:17 PM

did you guys all buy new toyotas? that was the point, right?

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 4:49 PM

If by sketchy you mean "near the crappy G train, and overrun by places that sell Polish food" then yes, Greenpoint is sketchy.

Posted by Anonymous | November 3, 2011 12:17 PM

The best part of the evening was free Sapporo beer and Sailor Jerry rum drinks! I got bored and left around 9:30pm. There were no instruments on stage and according to a few people I asked, they were only doing DJ sets.
