LCD Soundsystem, New York’s sensational alternative dance artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Aragon Ballroom!
LCD Soundsystem was formed in Brooklyn in 2002 by singer, songwriter, DJ, and record producer James Murphy along with guitarist, bassist, and percussionist Al Doyle. The band’s been through many line up changes over the years and it currently consists of James (lead vocals), Al (guitar, percussion, synths, and bass), Pat Mahoney (drums, percussion, drum machine, claps, synths, and vocals), Nancy Whang (vocals, keyboards, and synths), and Tyler Pope (bass, guitar, synths, claps, and drum machine). Their musical style is best described as a blend of dance punk (a genre - closely associated with the post punk and new wave movements - that emerged in the late 1970s and is characterized by punk music with a more rhythmic tempo which made it easier to dance to), electronica, electronic rock, and alternative dance (a genre that blends the melodic song structure of alternative and indie rock with electronic beats, synths and/or samples, and club orientation of post disco dance music). They’ve had a stellar career with 3 studio albums, 2 live albums, 15 music videos, 3 extended plays, 18 singles, and 2 remix albums. They’ve performed at many major music festivals such as Outside Lands, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, LouFest, and Wayhome. They’ve received many accolades including 3 Grammy Awards (for Best Dance Recording and 2 for Best Electronic/Dance Album). Their latest album (American Dream) comes out on 1st September 2017.
