Very interestingThe latest lineup for the October 6th show at Randall's Island in NYC is: Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, Les Savy Fav, Blonde Redhead, and Wild Light (them?)

Also, since we last spoke, Arcade Fire & LCD Soundsystem announced the rest of their dates together, and a limited edition split 7"...

The two bands are also pairing up to produce a limited edition split 7" single featuring LCD Soundsystem's cover of Joy Division's "No Love Lost" and Arcade Fire's cover of Serge Gainsbourg's "Poupee de Cire". The single will be available exclusively on the tour dates and through the bands' websites

As has been said, and will probably be said some more, the idea of Les Savy Fav being added to the bill of Arcade Fire & LCD Soundsystem @ Randall's Island is pretty awesome (and true). Tickets for the October 6th show are still on sale - as are tickets to Les Savy Fav's other two upcoming NYC shows.

In related news: I posted something last week about upcoming Metric shows, and how Emily haines contributed some piano (yes, just piano) to the new Les Savy Fav record. Well, since then her tour dates became more official and announced, so those (along with the latest Arcade Fire tour dates) are below....

the 2007 Coney Island Siren Festival (CRED)
Siren Festival 2007

If you were at the 2007 Village Voice Siren Festival in Coney Island yesterday, you may have noticed 'Bowery Presents'-sponsored messages connected to a plane that was flying over the beach. One of them advertised Interpol @ Madison Square Garden. Another I saw mentioned Modest Mouse @ McCarren Pool, and a third was the first announcement that LCD Soundsystem and Arcade Fire are playing together in NYC on October 6th. They left out the venue, but I can assure you that this show will in fact be at Randall's Island. Other known tour dates below....

ScannersWow. As reported by everyone, LCD Soundsystem will be touring this fall with Arcade Fire. There's a presale right now for just one date in Colarado. They're also both playing September 20th at the Hollywood Bowl (One of the largest natural amphitheaters in the world, with a current seating capacity of just under 18,000), and at Austin City Limits. Where will they play in NYC? MSG? More TBA soon.

All known tour dates for both bands below....

Franz FerdinandIt's true. The small NYC show Franz Ferdinand promised, will take place at Bowery Ballroom on June 13, 2007. No ticket info yet. Interpol is supposedly going on at 10 tonight with just a DJ as opener. The video by Anna McCarthy of Franz Ferdinand covering LCD Soundsystem, below....

I just woke up from a much-needed nap that was the result of non-stop moving that went something like: LCD @ Studio B --> not-much-sleep --> family --> Monday blogging. Now I feel better, so it's time to say that, once again, LCD brought the house down (@ Studio B Saturday night)....

LCD Soundsystem @ STudio B

How was Webster Hall?

I never saw Studio B that packed - especially when LCD started (an hour after they were supposed to start which made it impossible for me to get to Manhattan to also see Dan Deacon) - it was PACKED. I started in the back, but eventually made my way up front where the dance floor resembled a mosh pit. My clothes quickly turned from dry to (sw)wet.

James made two things very clear:
1) He was drunk
2) The three songs at the end were not an encore. They were merely LCD Soundsystem going upstairs for a short break to ensure that they/he do/does not puke on stage.

LCD Soundsystem played Bowery Ballroom in NYC on Friday and Saturday (March 30th & 31st). I went Friday, and I wish I went Saturday too, and I wish they were playing there every single day because I think that was one of my favorite concerts ever - definitely one of the best I've seen in Bowery Ballroom - definitely-possibly the most people I've ever seen dancing and friendly-dance-moshing at Bowery Ballroom. Must go to Studio B and/or Webster Hall. Here's a picture from Bowery:

LCD Soundsystem @ Bowery Ballroom

Last time I saw LCD at Bowery I wasn't AS into it - I can't really remember why. This time I loved it. Read more reviews at Qbertplaya, Music Slut, and Pop Tarts.

Planningtorock opened, but I missed them/her.

Sound of SilverIt's a great week for new streaming releases at AOL. You can listen to the new Ted Leo, LCD Soundsystem, El-P, Modest Mouse, Willy Mason, and Andrew Bird.

It's also a good week for "Best New Music" with LCD Soundsystem's Sound of Silver landing a 9.2 and Panda Bear's Person Pitch getting an even higher 9.4 - .3 short of Funeral. I don't use numeric scales, but I also really love both albums.

The Village Voice has great features on LCD Soundsystem (and here) and El-P.

The NY Times also covered LCD Soundsystem and El-P.

More unofficial 'Sound of Silver' remixes like the one above, here.

More LCD in this week's dance post. More El-P in this week's hip hop post. More new releases in this week's new releases. Panda Bear tickets still on sale.

I mentioned a rumored Brooklyn LCD Soundsystem show back when the Bowery Ballroom shows went on sale. Now according to Ticketweb (thx Adam) it looks like it's happening May 12th at Studio B, BUT it also looks sold out. Did anyone get a ticket?

(I've been listening to a lot of of) LCD Soundsystem's new album "Sound of Silver" (which) is (officially) out on DFA/Capitol Records on March 20th.

...the follow-up to the massively acclaimed and eponymous 2005 debut, was recorded over the summer of 2006 in a farm in upstate New York by Murphy and visitors from the big city including live band members Nancy Whang, Pat Mahoney and Tyler Pope. There, between silver foil-covered walls, nine tracks were crafted...
A Spring tour announcement is on the way, but in the meantime we know that tickets (thx Bill) go on sale Friday at noon for a March 30th LCD show at Bowery Ballroom in NYC.

It's also rumored that LCD are playing a Brooklyn show some time around then too, and speaking of a Brooklyn show - Night Time presents Carl Craig and DFA DJ Tim Sweeney at Studio B Friday night. And then of course there's DFA DJ Juan Maclean with Professor Murder at Hiro Ballroom TONIGHT.
