LCD Soundsystem interactive ‘The Long Goodbye’ exhibit coming to Rough Trade
LCD’s final show, MSG 4/2/2011 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Well, they didn’t call it The Short Farewell. LCD Soundsystem‘s The Long Goodbye five-LP live album boxset of the group’s final show (MSG, 4/2/2011) is being released on Record Store Day (April 19). And that goodbye is getting longer. As a leadup to that, an exhibit about the show/boxset will take over the exhibition room at Rough Trade NYC from April 7 – May 7. (That’s the space that just had the Moog installation.) Here’s what visitors can expect:
LCD Soundsystem: The Long Goodbye will immerse attendees in the sounds, sights and emotions of the band’s historic April 2, 2011 farewell, an epic near 4-hour tour de force hailed by New York magazine as “a marvel of pure craft” and Rolling Stone as a “staggeringly great night.” LCD Soundsystem: The Long Goodbye will come alive in multiple dimensions via exclusive video, advance pressings of the album’s five vinyl LPs laid out on five turntables, and a massive assortment of 4″ x 6″ prints of images by longtime LCD photographer Ruvan Wijesooriya, many never before been seen–and all available for the taking and replenished weekly.
The exhibit is free and open to the public, 11 AM – 11 PM nightly.
