As you may have heard, Bowery Presents' new 1800-capacity Williamsburg venue Brooklyn Steel opens next week with five LCD Soundsystem shows happening April 6, 7, 8, 10 & 11. Tickets for those shows go on sale today at noon.

The last time LCD played the city, almost exactly a year ago, it melted Tickertweb's servers just a little. (Having been back for a year now, demand may not be quite as high. We'll see.) Good luck!

It looks like these shows may also be the first chance to hear some of the band's much-anticipated new album, if LCD guitarist Al Doyle is to be believed. “Well, we already knew the old tunes, and we’ve just been rehearsing for 4 weeks, so draw your own conclusions I guess?”
