LCD Soundsystem: This Is The End

We'd heard that LCD Soundsystem might be done for good after their latest masterpiece, this Is Happening, and now it appears to be official.  James Murphy has announced that the final LCD show will take place at Madison Square Garden on April 2nd.

Since first hearing "Yeah" back in early '04, I've been a total sucker for anything with their name on it.  not many bands give you three A-grade albums out of three and then call it off, but that's exactly what James is doing, and as a huge fan, I'm more than OK with it.  I'll never have to defend a mediocre album of theirs, I'll never have to be bummed out or disappointed by one of their releases…  I have three LCD Soundsystem albums in my collection, and they're all as close to perfect as you can get, so James & Co. have given us plenty already.  Good luck in the Future, Mr. Murphy.
